Line Of Fire opening line: The heavy steel door, which the law dictated had to be thick enough to withstand the force of several Hiroshimas, had been nicely veneered in oak to make it look less intimidating.
Nick Stone has joined forces with the men he rescued from their North Pole adventure. He is trying to keep them safe the best way he knows how. But he thinks the job they are working on may be compromised by a snide. This is confirmed when he is exposed. Will his training get him free of his captors?
Line Of Fire:
‘Like the best action films in book form’ FHM Nick Stone is back in London but if he thought he was home for a break, he’s very, very wrong. Backed into a corner by a man he knows he cannot trust, ex-deniable operator Nick Stone strikes a devil’s bargain. In exchange for his own safety – a life for a life – Stone is charged with locating someone who doesn’t want to be found, currently hiding out in the one of the remotest corners of the UK. And for the first time in a long time, he’s not operating alone. But Stone and his team don’t find just anyone. They find a world-class hacker, so good that her work might threaten the stability of the western world as we know it. These are dangerous waters and Stone is quickly in over his head. Before he finally knows which way to turn, the choice is ripped out of his hands. Most people might think of home as safety but Nick Stone isn’t most people. For him and his team, it’s just another place to get caught in the line of fire…
This is not the best Nick Stone book that I have read. It seems to have been written in shorthand. There were a lot of abbreviations I could not follow which did not help. The story itself was not too bad and I am looking forward to the next installment as usually Andy McNab writes books that are exhilarating.
