Liberation Day

(Nick Stone Thriller 5)




The brilliant new bestseller from the author of Bravo Two Zero.

November 2001. A Zodiac inflatable slips away from a submarine off the North African coast. If he hadn't needed American citizenship so badly, Nick Stone wouldn’t have agreed to do this one last job, but the CIA’s offer of a new life in the United States, and the chance to share it with Carrie, the woman he’s fallen in love with, is one he cannot refuse.

The job seems simple enough for a man of his particular skills: infiltrate into the hostile and violent republic of Algeria, kill a money-laundering local businessman, and bring back his severed head to the West. Stone isn’t told why the man has to die like this, and he doesn’t want to know. He just guesses it’s got something to do with the democratic world’s fightback after the terrible events of 11 September.

But as events unfold alarmingly fast, Stone realizes that by no means has he been told the full story - and that in reality the job has only just begun. Then comes the devastating news that Carrie, enraged by his broken promise never to work with the CIA again, has turned her back on him for ever.

Operating in the dangerous underworld of the south of France, where al-Qaeda has embarked on a panicked round-up of funds using the ancient banking system of hawalla, Stone is in at the deep end of a very dirty war. In the most daunting mission he has ever undertaken, as one bloody twist leads to another, Stone ultimately finds himself confronted by the most desperate dilemma a man could ever face.

About the Author

Andy McNab

From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life.

As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years – on five continents. 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.

Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world’s best-selling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as several non-fiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the biggest selling British work of military history, he is the author of the best-selling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children.

Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers. He continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.
