    Bravo Two Zero author Andy McNab provides exhilarating thrills in this three-book collection about former SAS trooper, Nick Stone.

    In the first book Remote Control, the SAS no longer wants Stone's services after a botched mission, but British Intelligence does - and it's going to be a dirty job. When he's transferred to Washington DC, he finds himself on the run from terrorists with a seven-year-old survivor of their previous attack...

    Crisis Four finds Stone again working in the dangerous world of deniable operations. This time, he's been tasked with hunting down the beautiful Sarah Greenwood, the only woman he's ever opened up to. Will he be able to solve the conspiracy theory to which she holds the key?

    Stone is in desperate need of cash in Firewall, so takes a freelance job of kidnapping a Russian warlord. Soon he finds himself in the dark underbelly of Estonia, while Russia launches a cyber attack with the intention of discovering all the West's military secrets. It's up to Stone to stop them...

    High-octane thrillers that had to be vetted by the Ministry of Defence as they are so close to the truth, fans of Lee Child, Vince Flynn and other action-packed books will devour these.

    This collection contains books 1-3 in Andy McNab's Nick Stone series.

Looking across the years towards a time when he himself will be gone and their own lives may be drawing to a close, he puts his desire simply and powerfully: "I want my heart to have a voice so I can love you louder."
