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...
“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.

    The Survivor by Kyle Mills & Vince Flynn | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis 
    Now entering middle age, CIA agent/assassin Mitch Rapp must deal with consequences of his past actions as well as those of Joseph Rickman, a brilliant former CIA agent. Rickman, already dead at the novel’s start, put in peril the lives of numerous agents by threatening the release of classified intelligence. 
    Rapp successful assassination of Rickman creates other complications. Rickman not only hid his cache of intelligence data on CIA assets and agents, he also still seems to control it. Rapp embarks on a twisted trail to prevent the deaths of agents and assets around the world. Supported by a team of experienced agents, he finds guidance in two of his oldest friends, Irene Kennedy, head of the CIA, and Stan Hurley, his mentor and former handler. 
    Unbeknownst to them, the CIA is up against Ahmed Taj, a seemingly mild-mannered bureaucrat in charge of the country’s intelligence service. His scheme uses the Rickman debacle as a tool in his quest to take over Pakistan. Taj despises western morals and views Pakistan’s present problems as a sign it is reverting to its proper state. Nonetheless, he understands and exploits U.S. funds paid to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and is a true mastermind at manipulating things in his favor. 
    As asset information is leaked at regular intervals through emails, Rapp searches for its source and for the encryption key. An operation to kidnap and interrogate a Swiss national known for shady banking ties produces little, and Rapp finds himself racing against other operatives to chase down the source. 
    The story culminates at a state dinner in Islamabad attended by American dignitaries, as well as the Pakistan’s President Churani and Ahmed Taj. What occurs brings about a huge shift of power and reveals the true intentions of several characters.
