1987, porto di Tripoli. Nick Stone è una macchina da combattimento al massimo dell’efficienza nonostante la giovane età. Forse per questo è l’unico che può impedire che il governo di Gheddafi consegni ai terroristi dell’IRA un carico di armi e munizioni. E c’è un solo modo per fermare l’operazione: uccidere il terrorista che ne è responsabile, Benjamin Lesser.

Well, it's not often that I read the summary for a book and find that the PR guy who wrote the summary didn't actually read the book.

So, first, this correction. Nick Stone's car does not erupt in flames. On holiday in Ireland, he finds a bomb under the car, removes it, and takes it apart to analyze it. This part, incidentally, is fascinating. As Stone takes apart the bomb, he describes the way it works, how it is made, and what constitutes a bombmaker's signature.

Andy McNab writes terrific thri

I've read a lot of Thrillers over the years, but none like this one. I was gripped from page one.
It was my first Mcnab book, and I was not aware that there were more in the line with Nick Stone, but boy was I excited to hear that this was book number 11 of the series..and there's even more afterwards!

It's so easy to read, meaning you sweep right through the pages, gripped by the story line and the dark humor. Plot twists left, right and center, and the casual nonchalant attitude of Nick makes i

It is unfortunate that McNab's marketing team is obsessive about his background as an SAS soldier. I don't know what he was like as a soldier, but I had to stress again and again that the appeal of the series is that he is an exceptional writer. I'm glad to know that he is a trainer, as he possesses a rare talent of explanation. He could take any concept, and tell it in such a way that any laymen could follow and understand. Among that, he still managed to weave gripping stories, with a cast tha ...more

The book I am reviewing is Brute Force by Andy McNab which is an excellent SAS thriller which I bought from a car boot sale. This is another installment in the Nick Stone series about an ex SAS trooper and the covert jobs he does. Andy of course was a sergaent in the SAS & if you only read one book by him read Bravo Two Zero which is the true story about when he went on a mission in the First Gulf War and got captured by the Iraqis. It is one of the greatest war books ever. This book is grea ...more

Dopo "Plotone Sette", un libro autobiografico incentrato sul toccante rapporto con i compagni d'armi e sull'impossibilità di affrancarsi del tutto da un mondo speciale quanto dannato e dai suoi spettri, McNab non abbandona questo fil rouge nel ritorno ai thriller d'azione. Nick Stone, reduce dall'avventura afghana, invita la compagna e la figlia del defunto amico Peter in Irlanda per trascorrere il Natale. La vacanza idilliaca si trasforma ben presto in un incubo: Stone rinviene una bomba destin ...more

Realy enjoyed this book, was very detailed without being overly complicated with military jargon. Good story and easy to follow all the way through. Thats me read all but the most recent book of the Nick Stone series, which I will be picking up over the next day or two.

Once again Andy McNab writes a great book. I really enjoy the factual-fiction of the Troubles in Ireland. Looking forward to reading on!

Andy McNab is the master of the SAS book. You know he's been there, he's done that. Brilliant.
