Remote Control (Nick Stone #1)

Remote Control by Andy McNab is an espionage thriller by an author who knows what he is talking about - McNab is a retired British covert operations soldier.

Nick Stone is used to putting his life on the line for his country. He has been working in British anti-terrorism against the IRA for years. When a job ends in Washington DC, and he can't get a flight out for a few hours, he decides to catch up with old friends.

Kev, retired from British Intelligence and now working with the DEA, lives in suburban DC with his wife and two daughters. When he hears from Nick he invited him for dinner. The whole family will be happy to see uncle Nick.

But when Nick arrives he finds his friend dead in the kitchen. He searches the house and finds that seven year-old Kelly is the only survivor of the attack. Nick must do whatever he can to protect Kelly from whomever is after them.

This fast-paced thriller will capture reader from the first page. McNab's narrative is detailed and action packed.

Your review hooked me. This book sounds just like what I love to's going on my TBR list. My current book is Three Kisses(by Heath Daniels). It's another fast paced, terrorism, international intrigue adventure story that I just can't put down.
