A friend gave me this book and asked me several times if I liked it. So I always answered that I haven't read it yet because I have so many books on my list, but school is coming and no more running away. So I tried to read it. I really did.
Yet, I struggled to finish it. I skipped pages and pages. It was my first book for Andy McNab and probably the last. It's just not my type. I really wanted to know how he saved Katya, but there were so many unnecessary boring things and dull details. I guess

I am reviewing the SAS thriller Silencer by Andy McNab which is an excellent novel which I bought from kindle. This is the 15th installment in the Nick Stone series about an ex SAS soldier who is quite poor but makes a living doing covert missions. This book starts with him doing a covert mission in Columbia in 1993 when he was meant to shoot a druglord who was a member of the Columbian parliament and untouchable by legal means. He had to do the job with an old world war 2 gunsight that kept mis ...more

Another Nick Stone adventure. They are all great including this one. Globe trotting and a definite thriller. Action and adventure. Most of the book is edge of the seat stuff. Roll on the next one.

My mum's friend gave this to me to borrow to read before he does. When he gave it to me I felt too bad to say no as it's not really my cup of tea but I decide to read it anyway...and I actually enjoyed it. It was fast-paced and gripping but easy to read. I probably won't pick up any other McNab books unless I'm lent them again or maybe if they take my fancy in a second-hand shop but nonetheless it was good.

This book has been sat in my to read pile for quite some time, I can see why after reading it. To be fair, it's not all that bad, just feels a little bit clunky and whilst the drama and suspense builds up, how these situations are resolved seems too easy. The book travels the world from Russia to Hong Kong to America and Mexico, mixing drugs cartels and organ harvestation. I've read quite a bit of Andy McNab over the years, this is probably not his best.

It's beginning to get old for me because it's getting old for McNab. He needs some way to shake this series up. I recommend Bruen

Please give this author and series a shot, I promise you.Will not be disappointed! A very solid 4.5 Stars! I now patiently await book number 16.....Thank you Andy for a nice vacation from reality!

Great read- Stone's character is just too cool for school! So chilled and kicked back with a great attitude to life. McNab writes with style and humour, with lines that are just laugh out loud funny. I much prefer McNab's style to the often compared Chris Ryan, but both are skilled at telling excellent tales backed by real life knowledge that shines through. Highly recommended!

A Nick Stone novel with all the right ingredients well told. It would be a good introduction to the series as there is not much background knowledge required. Plus plenty of bad guys get given the good news.

Oh how I love Mr McNab ... another wonderful Nick Stone effort - far from running out of ideas so far in to the series (and now that Stone's character is a little long in the tooth!), I actually enjoy every one even more than the last!!

I'll always read you, Andy McNab. But Silencer isn't quite as strong as the earlier books; it's missing something, a bit of tradecraft, a bit of believability, that the earlier books have so much of. Still--I'm already looking forward to his next one.

Another great 'Nick Stone' novel from the ever exciting Andy McNab. As edge of seat and nail-biting as ever. Never fails to please.

"Here's a Scarlet Pimpernel IPA, Mick! You must need it after that long drive."

"Thanks! I do! But the trek down to Killarney wasn't that bad. I had a book on tape to keep me company."

"Oh! What was it?"

"Silencer, by that Bravo Two Zero guy."

"McNab! Yeah! Was it good?"

Glug glug.

I quite liked the book and enjoyed the action, learning about the south american gangs and Cartel's and the tradecraft Nick Stone uses but what ruined it for me was the absurd coincidences of all the main protaganists knowing each other which caused all the drama in the 1st place. With 8 billion people on the planet the chances of this 4 interlinked people was so astronomical to be absurd, plus the fact she didnt change the code on the super secret door didnt make sense when the woman was so sec ...more
4.5 stars

A cracking read, full of down-to-earth full-on action. Nice small chapters too which I prefer and for some reason makes me read quicker (maybe because when I think, 'I'll just read one more chapter" I know that it isn't going to take too long rather than not bothering with bigger chapters. Does that make sense?). Anyway, I'm not sure why I haven't read more of these books. I've read Aggressor and thoroughly enjoyed it. This wasn't as good but only marginally. I'll definitely be reading

From reading a number of Nick Stones books, I knew this one would be right up my street. I bought it online and was not disappointed when I read it. As usual the book is packed with action from start to finish. It covers what to me is a frightening new method used by unscrupulous people to make vast sums of money. The plot is fast action with as expected from Nick, a great deal of violence in it.

I didn’t finish this book, I found the first hundred pages a struggle and gave up. Nothing seems to happen and it was slow to get going.

Once again brilliant descriptions when I was reading the HongKong section it brought back memories that I had of the place. Once again Andy McNab brought out hero Nick Stone to life.

I feel sorry for Nick Stone because he really is the unluckiest man on the planet, when one nightmare is over a new appears straight away! How he has stayed alive all this time is astonishing, I know he is trained and has amazing skills but I think he is a bit jammy too!!!!

I cannot recommend this series of books enough!!
