Ex-special forces soldier Nick Stone is recuperating in Switzerland. His latest mission cost the life of one of his closest friends. And the woman he went to bed with last night has left without saying goodbye.
When she fails to reappear, Stone begins his quest to find her. Once in Africa and in the heart of a very dirty Congo war, it isn't long before the past comes knocking on the door. One bloody twist leads to another and Stone finds himself catapulted into the dark, brutal world he thought he's managed to leave behind.

"Paul Thornley IS Nick Stone"
The Nick Stone series is awesome. Very descriptive and action packed. Paul Thornley is not just the voice of Nick Stone, he odd Nick Stone.
"We're off to the Congo!"
In this addition to Nick Stone's adventures, we're heading off to Dominican Republic of Congo in West Africa, but Stone will find himself in Hereford, U.K and Switzerland before the novel is out.
War torn, blood thirsty West Africa is where Stone's girlfriend has headed off without him. Just as we start to see a romantic side to our favourite ex SAS hero, that sees Nick preparing to propose to a lucky lady when she comes home, she decides not to return home from work at all.
After tracking her down deep in the swamp ridden jungles of the Congo, Nick has to try and persuade her to return back to the U.K. with him, but not before Stone is fighting for his life and many others, including orphaned African child soldiers, many of whom were forced to kill their parents as a right of initiation into the army.
Amidst the gory realities of war, Nick fights for his life, alongside trying to win fair maiden's heart. Canablism and trench/jungle warfare are just a few of the atrocities included in this epic fight against evil.
Will Nick survive to fight another day? Of course he will, but he'll be taking a detour through hell before he wakes up from this nightmare. Full of action and gore, another "must listen" in the Stone series.
"Best of the series"
This is the best Nick Stone book in the series. Excellent work Mr McNab and Paul Thornley is an incredible narrator. Thanks for the journey
"Another good Book in the Nick Stone series"
Similar format to previous books. Good plot with interesting characters. Very well narrated as usual.
it's OK nothing special to much build up to a quick ending. would I recommend, I don't think I will. Chris Ryan has really left Mcnab behind in the battle of the regiment books
