Publisher's Summary

Nick Stone's future has never looked as bleak. The only person he's ever loved is dead. The only people who might give him a reason not to join her have turned their backs. Until a chance encounter with a man he saved ten years ago appears to throw him a lifeline...

But on the bullet- and bomb -scarred streets of Baghdad, second chances are in short supply. A simple quest becomes a journey to the heart of a chilling conspiracy; too late, he realizes that he is being used as bait - to lure into the open a man he believes can offer some salvation, but whom the darker forces of the West will stop at nothing to destroy...

From its violent and shocking opening in the Muslim enclaves of Bosnia, through vivid, lightning-paced action in war-torn Iraq, this unforgettable story proves Andy McNab yet again to be the master of the modern thriller, a writer at the very top of his game.

Andy Mcnab

Another steady book, as normal with this series. Hard to beat Bravo two Zero. But still a good read.

Nick's a complicated bloke ...

Brilliant and believable! The reader sounds like Nick and the author voices Nick's every thought!

Gripping from the start

I was put off by reviews saying this book was dull and plodding but I would have to disagree. There's probably less contact action than others so far but this felt like a very different book. The narrative of scenarios describing ordinary people living through the atrocities are chilling.

Slowest of series

Slowest of the series to date. Entertaining but so far apart from Nick Stone story line was like a new book at the beginning.

Superb Book

As an ex-military man I knew I’d like Andy McNab’s fiction as I thoroughly enjoyed his personal memoirs from being in the special forces. I’ve read all the Nick Stone books and I read them purposely in order. For me this is the best one, the plot is brilliant with lots of twists, real edge of the seat stuff. I read this book in two chunks, I simply couldn’t put it down. Andy McNab has created a wonderful character who is one of life’s emotionally challenged people scared to let anyone in fully and has been unsuccessful in love, has struggled with all types of relationships and most of what civvy street has to offer, but is brilliant at his job, I for one can identify with that!

Paul Thornley is by far the best narrator I’ve listened too and I’ve listened to a lot of books recently.

Good but not the best Nick Stone book so far

What did you like best about Deep Black? What did you like least?

The general basis for the story is believable and well thought out as usual. However, at times the book goes into too much detail in the scene setting and not much actual action seemed to occur. Explaining how the waiter behaved around the pool was not required, more action was. Usually these books strike this balance well but this book, for me, didn't achieve this.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The beginning and end are very good.

What about Paul Thornley’s performance did you like?

Excellent as usual. Very versatile accents.

Did Deep Black inspire you to do anything?

Find out more about the Bosnian War

Any additional comments?

I would still recommend this book if you have read the others in the series, just for me it was my least favourite.
