This is the 19th outing for Andy McNab’s protagonist Nick Stone, This time around we find him with is hard-earned life savings tied up in Russian red tape, due to the death of his partner and son; so he’s skint and in need of a job.

Aware that he and his mates, Gabe, Jack and Rio, are not flavour of the month with the ‘powers that be’. He’s taken the precaution to ensure that those in charge know that he has enough information squirrelled away to ensure that if he and his mates go down, they will go down too, in mutually assured destruction.

The shadowy organisation understands and wants Nick and his team to undertake another job, tasking their frontman (nicknamed ‘The Owl’) to bring the team onboard.

‘The Owl’ tells Nick that the job ‘is just a simple thing – a couple of days at most’ and an £80,000 pay day. All they need to do is find and secure a young Belarussian woman called Yulia Zyk, who is surfing in Cornwall.

Of course, the job turns out to be anything but simple and involves Russian computer hackers, GCHQ and data collection infiltration.

If you like your action full on, banter turned up to 11 and firearms on full auto, then this is the book for you.
