Helsinki, December 1999. Firewall is the third of former SAS man, Andy McNab’s Nick Stone book and tts a decent enough thriller. As with the other Stone thrillers, all stories are written sequentially. Like all McNab novels, Firewall is filled with lots of authentic trade craft and attention to technical detail. Here the action is sent in a cold and wintry landscape.

Bestselling Andy McNab and award-winning Phil Earle join forces for the very first time, and the results are hilarious! Danny Mack's mates are brilliant: there's his best mate Giraffles (yeh, you read that right), so-called because of his unusually long neck; the MandM twins (you got it-like the chocolate) who are always finishing each other's sentences; and Lucky Success, who, well I reckon you can guess how he got his name. McNab's secret is reliability. Nick Stone, ex-SAS, now a ‘K’ working for British Intelligence on deniable operations, is tough, resourceful, ruthless, highly trained – and desperately in need of cas. ffered the lucrative freelance job of kidnapping a mafia warlord and delivering him to St Petersburg, it seems to Stone that his problems are over. In fact, they are only just beginning.

The fun part of the Nick Stone series is that the hero is not some sort of super special forces guy. He's fallible, human and has serious issues. I love the Seal Team Six No More books by Doug Murray, because the heroes die every now and then. But you know things will work out in the end. With the Nick Stone books all you know is that Nick will survive because there's another book in the Nick Stone series. That's all you know, for the rest the book stays wide open.
Furthermore, it is cleat that McNab is only writing what he knows about. There's no tech mumbo jumbo that makes no sense to the technical inclined reader. McNab knows about being in 'a drama' and how to get out of it. This part is significant because the story is about hi-tec computer stuff, and at no point McNab is pretending to understand that stuff, instead he makes it very clear he doesn't through Nick Stone. But he also makes it clear that this is irrelevant. It's a motive for the baddies in the story, but the details are left out, because they don't matter.

I can recommend this book to all of you that like thrillers about special forces fellas that are not super heroes

I think I have read to many Andy McNab novels. The problem is that they have become rather formulaic. Nick's again moping around, wondering about his life and his decisions. He's short on money. Even though he's made stupid decisions in the past that have him moping around, he makes some more stupid decisions.

I grant you that McNab can write a complex story with lots of action, and questions as to whether anyone will survive or not always pop up as one turns the pages. But, this book strains the limits of credulity... yes, potentially events could have unfolded the way they did, and, I'm going to win the lotto tomorrow morning... just a bit too much.

Having said that, I'll probably read the next McNab novel to see if he has improved.

Excellent Book, From beginning to end. Excellent Thriller. Once you buy the book you will want to read all of the Nick Stone Novels. I also read book 4 Last Light. Another great Book.I'm starting book 5 LiberationDay . I have Read 4 Nick Stone Novels in less than two weeks. I also read ( BRAVO TWO ZERO) THE BOOK IS about his life in The war .I'm not really into reading Novels. I'm now reading more thanks to Andy Mcnab. His Nick Stone Novels are excellent. So far.

I'm delighted I started with this...book 3...because I might have wandered thru books 1 and 2 thinking Nick Stone would get smarter and be a better story. Saved myself lots of painful hours!
No. 3 here is a great read for driving in the cold, being wet and cold, at least 3 near death experiences, dark frozen landscapes, hours long descriptions of all that, and just 15 minutes of meaningful dialogue. Oh, and how can I forget the last 3 pages that promise more of the same for book 4.
Happy to have only read # 3!

Another good Nick Stone novel. Where was Andy Mcnabb when I was reading Jack Reacher? Happened by chance to read my first Nick Stone novel, now I'm on my fifth one. Author provides intricate detail. This one takes place in Finland and Estonia. Nick Stone at times looks to be a real bumbler, but always comes out the Hero!

This book is 345 pages and should be 245 at the most. It is slow moving because of all the filler junk. This maybe the worse book I have ever read. Mr. McNab has a serious obsession with "snot" and other bodily fluids. In my opinion, Mr. McNab is a fair writer at best. My advice is DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF TRASH.

Stone is cut loose from the Firm as a regular operator and is on contract status. In dire need of money he seeks other work with the Russian mob. There is fast paced action, murder, betrayal, adversarial involvement with American operatives as well as twists and turns along with some surprises as he seeks to carry out his contract.
This guy writes a good action novel. I've now read three of them, and they keep improving in prose quality. I intend to read at least one more of this series, but I fear that , sooner rather than later, the "same old thing" will begin to reappear, as often happens in multi-book character series.. That being said, this book is a good read, and I recommend it.
