Description - Liberation Day by Andy McNab

December 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 Islamic 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 September 11th. But as events unfold alarmingly fast, Stone realized 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 forever. Operating in the dangerous underworld of the South of France, where al-Qaeda has embarked on a panicked round-up of funds using their ancient banking system of hawalla, Stone is in at the deep end of a very dirty war.

Book Reviews - Liberation Day by Andy McNab

US Kirkus Review » Ex-Special Forces member McNab (Last Light, 2002, etc.), back in a fifth outing, continues his career of vicarious mayhem. It's one last assassination for British ex-pat, Bond-heir apparent, superspy-assassin Nick Stone-who doesn't know why the Algerian convenience-store king Zeralda needs to die and doesn't really care. After all, he's a "K" who works on deniable missions for the Intelligence Service, and "I'd always tried to turn my back on the guilt, remorse, and self-doubt that always followed a job." Nick brings Zeralda's head home and doesn't say a word. Will he now be able to put all that behind him and become a barman or a tour guide, get his US citizenship, and please the two women in his life, the love interest and the semi-estranged daughter? Fugeddaboudit. It takes only the knowledge that Zeralda was mixed up with Al Qaeda (not to mention little boys) to bring our hero back to action tout de suite ("Today was the day the covert three-man team I commanded was about to take the war to Al Qaeda"). He vaults back into his world of intrigue and gadgetry, working with men who are used to jabbering in Arabic on the Net (but he'll manage) and encountering characters with names like Hubba Hubba, Leather Girl, and Goatee. And when the mission's all over, the dirty bomb thwarted, etc., Hubba Hubba is quick to remind Nick that he wouldn't want to be a barman anyway, and superspies were sort of a family, weren't they? "I couldn't be a student or a bartender," Nick concedes. "I couldn't do anything other than what I did." McNab may be slipping a bit here in trying to churn out product to match the times: it's up-to-date enough to refer to Mr. And Mrs. B. entertaining heads of state with Tex-Mex while bombs fall in Afghanistan. Still, McNab is as obsessed with detail as always. Another franchise in the Nick Stone industry. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - 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 bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three nonfiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the bestselling British work of military history, he is the author of the bestselling 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 and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities.
