Meltdown by Andy McNab

Book Description

A lethal new drug with devastating side effects, known as Meltdown, is threatening to destabilize society. Dudley knows that the security services have to act fast, and when his 4 x 4 arrives at their remote hideout in the Canadian lakes, eighteen-year-old Danny and his grandfather, ex-SAS hero Fergus Watts, are once again sucked into a deadly undercover operation and a race against time. Their search for the mastermind behind a pair of murderous gangland twins takes them from the clubs of Manchester to Spain and Germany, and Danny needs all his newly learned expertise when he comes up against an old adversary - someone he hoped never to encounter again. And this time, when the battle is joined, it is a battle to the end.

Pilgrim by Andy McNab Pilgrim, Paperback (November 2016)

WITH FOREWORD BY ANDY MCNAB I was naked, handcuffed, and blindfolded. All around me, the voices of my captors shouted continuously in my ear - a stream of Arabic I couldn't understand. It became an endless mantra as I struggled to work out what had gone wrong - what had happened that landed me up in this horrible situation.

Cold Blood by Andy McNab Cold Blood, Paperback (October 2016)

Nick Stone is suffering. The two people he cared for most are gone. Thousands of miles away five ex-servicemen, badly wounded in Afghanistan, are preparing for a trek to the North Pole in an attempt to begin to rebuild their shattered bodies and minds. When Stone is summoned as close protection for the trek, he accepts unthinkingly.

Detonator by Andy McNab Detonator, Paperback (September 2016)

Betrayed and left for dead high in the Alps, Nick Stone is in trouble. The blood on his hands tells of a head wound he can't see. He knows only one thing for certain - someone, somewhere wants to kill him. And they think they've succeeded. Stone wants revenge, but the only person who can help him is a seven year old boy.

Street Soldier by Andy McNab Street Soldier, Paperback (August 2016)

Sean Harker is good at two things: stealing cars and fighting. One earns him money, the other earns him respect from the gang that he calls family. A police chase through the city streets is just another rite of passage for Sean ...as is getting nicked. But a brutal event behind bars convinces him to take charge, and turn his life around.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The final, exciting book in the Watts Family adventures from Britain reaches a satisfying resolution with this caper about a dangerous new drug that threatens all Europe. Now 18, Danny and his grandfather Fergus reluctantly agree to find and destroy the evildoers who are manufacturing "Meltdown" before terrorists take over the operation for their own ends. As in the previous episodes, McNab's military expertise and Rigby's writing skills combine to rivet readers' attention while the duo infiltrates the drug operation. Original villains, snafus and the resulting improvisations by the good guys vary the action and keep interest high while the tension between Danny and Fergus adds even more emotional weight. Altogether, this truly entertaining and well-written series entry will can give young readers plenty of fun and insights into real, not imaginary, military techniques. By far the best of the imitation James Bond genre. Highly recommended. (Fiction. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - 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 two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero, which was filmed in 1998 starring Sean Bean, and Immediate Action. He is the author of the bestselling novels, Remote Control, Crisis Four, Firewall, Last Light, Liberation Day, Dark Winter, Aggressor and Recoil. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. Robert Rigby began his career as a journalist, then spent several years in the music business as a songwriter and session musician. He turned to writing for radio, television and the theatre and has also directed and performed in children's theatre throughout the country. He has become an established young people's playwright and his award-winning work with youth theatre companies has been seen in Britain, Europe, the USA and Africa. He wrote the novelizations of the movies, Goal! and Goal II, and his scripts for television include the long-running BBC children's drama series Byker Grove.
