Remote Control Tough, Resourceful, Ruthless As An SAS Trooper, Nick Stone Was One Of The Best Now He S Back On The Streets After A Botched Mission, The Regiment No Longer Want His Services But British Intelligence Does As A Deniable Operator It S The Dirtiest Job In A Very, Very Dirty World.In Washington DC, It S About To Get Dirtier Still On The Apparently Routine Tail Of Two Terrorists, He Discovers The Bodies Of An Ex SAS Officer And His Family Soon He S On The Run With The Lone Survivor Of The Bloodbath A Seven Year Old Girl And Whilst She Can Identify The Killers, Only Stone Can Keep Them At Bay And Solve A Mystery Whose Genesis Takes Him Back To The Most Notorious SAS Mission In Recent HistoryRemote Control Is The First Of Andy McNab S Blistering Nick Stone Thrillers Bestsellers Whose Landscape Is So Compellingly Close To The Truth That They Had To Be Vetted By The Ministry Of Defence, And Could Only Be Published As Fiction The first Nick Stone novel, and one of the best A involved plot something I find lacking in the recent Stone novels , and a real page turner Much down and dirty that other spycraft novels I have read, and the main character is very engaging. I was surprised by how much I liked this book It started out as another high action thriller, the kind of book I like to read at night to clear my mind after the research for my writing I often read during the day Then an eight year old girl named Kelly came onto the scene and everything changed.The action is sustained from beginning to end, presented with the edge that only someone who has really been there can command The writing is crisp What early on struck me as too much detail became, as the story unfolded, just exactly the right amount Settings are clearly and dramatically presented Time of day, weather, passers by everything is seen through the eyes of one whose life depends on sorting out lethal threats from an otherwise innocuous background.But it is the relationship between Nick Stone, the professional government killer, and the girl he is forced to protect and use that dominates the book, and makes me want to read the next in the series Fortunately, this is the first of many Nick Stone adventures Kelly s family has been murdered Nick has saved her And now what She is clearly a burden a This was my first experience with Andy McNab s Nick Stone books, and this one was a blast Given that McNab was a former member of the SAS, and a highly decorated one, I was looking for something good and this than met my expectations.The novel begins in Gibraltar, where Stone and his fellow soldiers are putting a halt to Irish bombings, then fast forwards 9 years where Stone s mission in Washington is suddenly terminated Following this Stone decides to visit his friend Kev and his family Unfortunately, when Nick arrives at the house, he finds Kev and most of his family brutally murdered, only Kev s daughter Kelly remains alive From here Stone takes Kelly with him as they embark on a chase from unknown assassins and Stone is at a loss as who to trust.Nick Stone struck me as quite a similar character to Lee Child s Jack Reacher, a bit of loner but a very capable soldier who has some pretty badass scenes Apart from of course Kelly, there weren t any female characters here of note, which I hope will change in future novels.The pace of Remote Control varied throughout, sometimes it would be incredibly tense and you just wanted to read on Other times I found it dragged, particular with one chapter which was about double the length of all the rest, and only really redeemed itself at the end The ending of the novel however was very McNab s first fiction effort is a corker of a book, following a by now familiar pattern in its structure but still remaining as fresh as its day of release The action packed plot sees McNab s hero Nick Stone taking out Irish bombers in Gibraltar, before we suddenly jump forward nine years and find him investigating the brutal slaying of a fellow SAS man in Washington Before you know it, McNab concocts an enthralling odd couple chase thriller, as Stone is forced to fly with the now orphaned 7 year old Kelly in his charge Tons of covert operations, violent firefights and non stop suspense and investigation follow in a story that travels from Washington to Florida, back to Washington and finally to London McNab throws in his typical ingredients a huge twist at the end, lots of emotion and psychological profiling, and some nasty gruesome bits somebody gets his face b
