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 by an old SAS officer, he accepts unthinkingly, desperate for the chance to escape his own misery. They meet at the world's most northerly airport, where the locals are as hard as nails and the polar bear threat makes it against the law not to carry a gun. But it doesn't take long for Stone and his team to discover that neither the bears nor the locals are the most dangerous predators in this part of the world. It is quickly clear to Stone that the coldest war of all is just beginning.

As an all time fan of Mcnab's work, especially his Nick Stone novels, I might be bias when saying this book was awesome.
The great thing about it was the different style and storyline Mcnab has chosen compared to his other books. I don't think he has written a book like this before, it's a very different storyline which was refreshing to say the least.
If you like to watch Bear grills or other endurance specialists on TV, you'll love this book. It was a welcome change of pace and the exciting and gripping aspect of Nick Stone's adventures remained constant. Well worth a credit.

Went a little cold
The setting of the story was perfect and the descriptive plot exciting. The delivery was however disappointing. I found the story difficult to engage with and found myself drifting away from the point, assuming there was a point. A very disjointed novel with no real conclusion and weak characters. The narration was fair and the reader tried to go into the characters. Regrettably one of the accents used sounded like the London Jamaican sound that all the chavs are into, and made the whole thing sound ridiculous. A waste of a credit in my opinion, but that's the thing with books. Sometimes the best covers are on the worst written books.
