Publisher's Summary

After his mission is suddenly terminated in Washington, D.C., British Intelligence agent Nick Stone decides to visit an old colleague, Kev Brown. But when Stone arrives at his friend's eerily quiet suburban home, he discovers a chilling scene of carnage. Every member of the Brown family has been brutally slaughtered except one: seven-year-old Kelly Brown. His instincts on red alert and adrenaline in overdrive, Stone grabs the girl and runs - with anonymous assassins in hot pursuit. But is it Stone they want to silence, or the innocent child? Or both? During a heart-pounding chase that takes the resourceful, sometimes ruthless seasoned pro and his frightened young charge from Washington to Florida, and across the Atlantic to England, Stone begins to piece together a shocking global conspiracy. Thrust into a lethal game of cat-and-mouse, Stone is certain of two things: He and Kelly are on their own; no one can be trusted. And his darkest fears about the shadowy link between politics, money, and terrorism are about to be realized.
Combining relentless action, daring escapes, and breathless plotting with chillingly authentic operational detail rarely seen in thrillers, Remote Control is a novel so real and so suspenseful it sets a new standard for the genre.


What the Critics Say

"Barrett's British accent is perfect for the part of the British intelligence agent, and he portrays the main character with skill." (AudioFile) "McNab reliably delivers the believable, real-life details and keeps readers' attention with steady, careful prose until the predictable but satisfying end." (Publishers Weekly)

Main character was creepy.

This is the first bad review I have ever left!
When the main character wasn't bathing the little girl, he was lying to her and/or manipulating her into endangering her life to save his own. Perhaps the unabridged version doesn't make him seem like such a bumbling creeper.
The ending was extremely abrupt, as if even the author was disgusted with the direction in which he had taken the character.
The narration was great :-)

Not as expected.

ends abruptly. Everything seemed like it happened accidentally instead of at least some bit of a plan as you would expect from SAS
