A heart-stopping novel of violence, betrayal and high-octane suspense.
My head was forced under and I swallowed a mouthful of freezing river. I kicked back to the surface, forcing myself to breathe in through my nose, only to choke as I inhaled yet more water. I let go of her. We each had to fight our own battle now. She looked at me, her eyes the size of saucers as she realised what I had done. That wasn’t my problem; it would only become one if I couldn’t get her body out of the water and they found out who she was.
Nick Stone, ex-SAS, now a ‘K’ working for British Intelligence on deniable operations, is tough, resourceful, ruthless, highly trained - a master of his trade.
Sarah is beautiful, steel willed, intelligent, cunning - the only woman that Stone has ever let under his guard. And now he’s been sent to hunt her down ...
As the pair are pursued through the backwoods of the American South, Stone’s mission becomes a journey to the heart of a dark and deadly conspiracy to which only Sarah holds the key. And as the tension builds to breaking point, the two are led to a confrontation that echoes our worst nightmares.
About the Author
Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. 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 in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero, which was filmed in 1998 starring Sean Bean, and Immediate Action. He is also the author of ten bestselling novels, including most recently Crossfire. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK.
"McNab is a terrific novelist. When it comes to thrills, he's Forsyth class" Mail on Sunday "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 "Addictive... Packed with wild action and revealing tradecraft" Daily Telegraph "McNab is the best suspense thriller writer to put pen to paper since Alistair MacLean" -- Stephen Coonts
