Even though he's made stupid decisions in the past that have him moping around
on January 20, 2017
I think I have read to many Andy McNab novels. The problem is that they have become rather formulaic. Nick's again moping around, wondering about his life and his decisions. He's short on money. Even though he's made stupid decisions in the past that have him moping around, he makes some more stupid decisions.
I grant you that McNab can write a complex story with lots of action, and questions as to whether anyone will survive or not always pop up as one turns the pages. But, this book strains the limits of credulity... yes, potentially events could have unfolded the way they did, and, I'm going to win the lotto tomorrow morning... just a bit too much.
Having said that, I'll probably read the next McNab novel to see if he has improved.
