Summary

Ex-deniable operator Nick Stone is bodyguarding a TV crew on the streets of war-torn Basra. He seems certain to die when insurgent gunmen attack. Only a reporter’s swift action saves his life.
 
 
When the reporter vanishes within hours, presumed kidnapped, Stone is asked by the Intelligence Service to find him. The trail leads from Iraq to London, Dublin, and Kabul - the brutal city where governments, terrorism and big business collide.
 
 
Caught in the crossfire, Stone's nightmare is only just beginning - for the hunter has suddenly become the hunter...
 
Reviews  
“Authentic to the core... McNab at his electrifying best” - Daily Express (UK)
 
“McNab is the best suspense thriller writer to put pen to paper since Alistair MacLean” - Stephen Coonts  
“McNab is a terrific novelist. When it comes to thrills, he’s Forsyth class” - Mail on Sunday (UK)  
“McNab’s great asset is that the heart of his fiction is not fiction: other thriller writers do their research, but he has actually been there” - The Sunday Times (UK) About Andy McNab 
From the day he was found abandoned in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy’s Hospital, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.
 
As a teenage delinquent, he kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 Special Air Service Regiment he was involved for ten years in covert and overt special operations worldwide, often working alongside America’s Delta Force, SEALS, DEA and CIA.
 
During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, ‘will remain in regimental history for ever’. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS.
 
Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three non-fiction bestsellers, he is the author of fifteen bestselling Nick Stone thrillers.
 
Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.

    Meet Hell's hottest new intern.  
    Nessa has no magic licence, no money, and no choice but to take up an apprenticeship in Hell. Working for her old friend Satan isn't so bad – Hell, it turns out, is a lot like Las Vegas. Well, except for the dungeons out back which Nessa is forbidden from visiting. 
    Trouble is, Nessa thinks there might be someone in those dungeons who has what she wants: information. Maybe they can tell her why everyone from Satan to The Department of Magic and Death to the annoying (to put it mildly) poltergeist Ed is so interested in her abilities. 
    When a goblin turns up dead in Hell – a problem, since he didn’t arrive that way – Nessa needs to find out who killed him. Murder is not good for tourism, after all, and if the matter is not cleared up quickly, Satan might just lose her cool. 
    And let's be honest, that won’t end well for anybody. 
    It’s Hell like you’ve never seen it before! If you enjoy funny paranormal mysteries, this series is for you. Download now to join Nessa on her adventures in the underworld.

    Some people never learn that it’s a really bad idea to mess with a Marine Pathfinder, even one who has been forced into early retirement. Zack Decker just wanted to be left alone so he could live a quiet life with the woman he loved and make up for lost time, but his enemies simply couldn’t resist the temptation to pursue their vendetta. One moment, he was hauling cargo across the depths of interstellar space, the next he was in the hands of pirates and headed for the barbaric worlds beyond the Coalsack nebula, to be sold into captivity. Marines don’t make good slaves and Zack was more than happy to show everyone why he should have been killed straight away, because he was coming back, looking for blood. Revenge might be cold comfort, but he would remind them once again that he was still one of the Few…
