For Valour

by Andy McNab

This action thriller is the next adventure for former SAS trooper Nick Stone.

A young recruit is killed during a training exercise and while the finger is pointed at the son of his friend Harry, Nick knows this is just the beginning of an investigation that means he must expose establishment he once fought hard to protect.

This highly-charged novel puts you right in the middle of every life or death decision, and although the action is thick and fast, there is a lot of emotion in the writing that gives it a very human touch. Difficult to put down, impossible to forget. 9/10
