Lovereading view...

Famous for his Gulf War memoir Bravo Two Zero which gave him the basis for his SAS character Nick Stone, McNab has now created a new series character, Tom Buckingham, for whom this is the second outing. We met him in Red Notice where he encountered terrorism on the Eurostar train. Now he’s sent back from a term in Afghanistan to an England in a boiling situation and race riots following the killing of an innocent Muslim by the police. This is a highly political, bang up-to-date terrorist tale of conflict in various state departments and terrorist organisations hiding behind charitable work. It has a lot more depth than the Nick Stone McNabs but still plenty of intrigue and action. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Fortress by Andy McNab

Tom Buckingham has blood on his hands. Neck deep in trouble for taking down a renegade Afghan soldier, he's sent back home; angry, betrayed and out of work. But with riots and rebellion spreading like wild fire on the streets of Britain, Tom's unique skills are soon noticed by a charismatic billionaire with a questionable agenda. Buckingham finds himself thrown back into the covert world of intelligence where a play for power is under way. He'll have to decide where his loyalties lie if he's to intervene in a series of events that will threaten the whole nation. Time is running out and lives are at stake; is there anyone Tom Buckingham can trust?

About the Author

Andy McNab

Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.
