I’m sorry to say I stopped reading this halfway through and deleted it. I’m all for for tough, gritty and real, but I can do without sickening.
Even when the real action gets started, when the terrorists are in the tunnel, our hero Tom, single handed, takes on about 40 veteran soldiers trying to rescue his girl. I usually love McNabs books because they are realistic, with the good guys getting injured and killed, and sometimes even failing in their mission. Tom appears to be invincible when chasing after his true love. I hope Tom and his Gal live happily ever after, but lets get back to what McNab is good at please, no more Romance. McNab is far, far, better than this when he sticks to what he is best at.
I have only ticked OK because the last two thirds pick up a bit with more action, last out until then if you can.
The characters are okay, although when he's writing everyday dialogue of non-military/political people it's a bit unbelievable. All the SAS guys talk in the same kind of banter and appear quite shallow; I didn't care very much about any of the characters - even the French girl. There was nothing much to her - she was just waiting around for her shallow boyfriend.
The plot is an inventive terrorist situation in the Channel Tunnel. However, (Spoiler) it's not believable that Tom would just happen to be on the hijacked Eurostar train that very day, having failed to capture the hijacker that same afternoon. It's an incredible coincidence.
Overall, the action detail is very good, the writing is okay, but it has some problems.
