Out on the ice, polar bears aren't the only natural born killers.
Nick Stone is suffering. The two people he cared for most are gone. Thousands of miles away, five ex-servicemen, badly wounded in Afghanistan, are preparing for a trek to the North Pole in an attempt to begin to rebuild their shattered bodies and minds.
When Stone is summoned as close protection for the trek by an old SAS officer, he accepts unthinkingly, desperate for the chance to escape his own misery. They meet at the world's most northerly airport, where the locals are as hard as nails and the polar bear threat makes it against the law not to carry a gun. But it doesn't take long for Stone and his team to discover that neither the bears nor the locals are the most dangerous predators in this part of the world. It is quickly clear to Stone that the coldest war of all is just beginning.

As an all time fan of Mcnab's work, especially his Nick Stone novels, I might be bias when saying this book was awesome.
The great thing about it was the different style and storyline Mcnab has chosen compared to his other books. I don't think he has written a book like this before, it's a very different storyline which was refreshing to say the least.
If you like to watch Bear grills or other endurance specialists on TV, you'll love this book. It was a welcome change of pace and the exciting and gripping aspect of Nick Stone's adventures remained constant. Well worth a credit.
"Another great Nick Stone Thriller"
Absolutely fantastic and a gripping storyline, I love the Nick Stone collection and can not wait for the next. Great detailed story which comes to life in my mind
"A good listen"
Not a bad book by any means, passed the time just needed that bit more to be 5 star. Great narration
"not one of his best"
it was okay. a nice listen. it just didn't grab me like other books of his.
"wish I had saved my money."
poor storyline. what was the point. waited for it to come to life. It didn't.
"Great fan of Nick Stone....."
But this was probably the least entertaining Since when did Nick Stone turn into Sly Stallone with his long his monologue speeches? He's a cold hearted washed out killer, please bring him!!
"Don't waist your Audible credit or cash on this ..."
Thanks for reading this. I was really up for the new Nick Stone, but sadly it wasn't up to much. The setting and characters are great ′and the end of the book hints at a possible new direction - fingers crossed′. But the only positive for me was Paul Thornley's narration Brilliant as ever and as much part of Nick Stone as Jeff Harding is of Jack Reacher.
I've loved the earlier Nick stone series but the last few books have been a bit boring. Running out of good storylines.
"not a bad way to kill a weekend"
better than the last few. Mmcnabs style has gotten a bit better with age and tends to not follow quite the same formula as much. or at least is more entertaining.
i stopped reading some of the early books as thay were very samey.
good to see he has progressed
good book maybe not as good as his others but still good and worth a listen
