Read full description of the books:
Or Nick Stone: The Dishwater Edition. This Andy McNab book follows the same downward spiral as the last few books in the series, an overly-padded and way too slow-paced would-be thriller that offers anything but thrills. The thriller aspects of the story make up around a third of the pages and the rest is just padding involving the main characters sitting around or wandering around aimlessly.
McNab misses the fact that thrillers need to be pacy and suspenseful even when there isn't shooting going on. But descriptions of characters drinking cans of Coke which go on for page after page are hardly that. There's also a real paucity of vocabulary; the same language and lines are used over and over. It feels like this book was rushed out on a production line with no real care taken over it.
The storyline is a wild goose chase about the hunt for a saviour of women in the aftermath of the Serbian war. The action shifts to Iraq to include some descriptions of a country at war (the year is 2003). This time around, Stone isn't working for the government so his mission seems aimless and a little bit pointless; the action sees him being acted upon rather than active himself.
By this stage, he's also a really miserable character who you don't enjoy reading about; I was hoping for a bullet to put him out of his misery. The story has a whole has a downbeat, bleak tone that saps the entertainment value and makes this a lifeless read.

Read information about the authorAndy McNab joined the infantry in 1976 as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was badged as a member of 22 SAS Regiment. He served in B Squadron 22 SAS for ten years and worked on both covert and overt special operations worldwide, including anti-terrorist and anti-drug operations in the Middle and Far East, South and Central America and Northern Ireland.
Trained as a specialist in counter terrorism, prime target elimination, demolitions, weapons and tactics, covert surveillance and information gathering in hostile environments, and VIP protection, McNab worked on cooperative operations with police forces, prison services, anti-drug forces and western backed guerrilla movements as well as on conventional special operations. In Northern Ireland he spent two years working as an undercover operator with 14th Intelligence Group, going on to become an instructor.
McNab also worked as an instructor on the SAS selection and training team and instructed foreign special forces in counter terrorism, hostage rescue and survival training.
Andy McNab has written about his experiences in the SAS in two bestselling books, Bravo Two Zero (1993) and Immediate Action (1995). Bravo Two Zero is the highest selling war book of all time and has sold over 1.7 million copies in the UK. To date it has been published in 17 countries and translated into 16 languages. The CD spoken word version of Bravo Two Zero, narrated by McNab, sold over 60,000 copies and earned a silver disc. The BBC's film of Bravo Two Zero, starring Sean Bean, was shown on primetime BBC 1 television in 1999 and released on DVD in 2000.
Immediate Action, McNab's autobiography, spent 18 weeks at the top of the bestseller lists following the lifting on an ex-parte injunction granted to the Ministry of Defence in September 1995. To date, Immediate Action has now sold over 1.4 million copies in the UK.
McNab is the author of seven fast action thrillers, highly acclaimed for their authenticity and all Sunday Times bestsellers. Published in 1997, Remote Control was hailed as the most authentic thriller ever written and has sold over half a million copies in the UK. McNab's subsequent thrillers, Crisis Four, Firewall, Last Light , Liberation Day , Dark Winter , Deep Black and Aggressor have all gone on to sell equally well. The central character in all the books is Nick Stone, a tough ex-SAS operative working as a 'K' on deniable operations for British Intelligence.
McNab's fiction draws extensively on his experiences and knowledge of Special Forces soldiering. He has been officially registered by Neilsen Bookscan as the bestselling British thriller writer of the last year.
