If you've ever read any Andy McNab, this is true to form and, if that's your bag (Bergen?), go for it; you'll enjoy this one just as much.

2 quick questions:

1) why does Nick Stone go in to a hostile war zone only to give the love of his life up so easily?

2) with everything he's gone through, surely he'd be a basket case by now? (Maybe therein lies the answer to 1)) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 055215377X, Mass Market Paperback)

Recuperating in Switzerland after a job that cost the life of one of his closest friends, ex-special forces soldier and deniable operator Nick Stone has only one thing on his mind: the girl who left his bed this morning without saying goodbye.
