Deep beneath the English Channel, a small army of Russian terrorists has seized control of the Eurostar to Paris, taken 400 hostages at gunpoint and declared war on a government that has more than its own fair share of secrets to keep.
One man stands in their way. An off-duty SAS soldier is hiding somewhere inside the train. Alone and injured, he's the only chance the passengers and crew have of getting out alive. Meet Andy McNab's explosive new creation, Sergeant Tom Buckingham, as he unleashes a whirlwind of intrigue and retribution in his attempt to stop the terrorists and save everyone on board including Delphine, the beautiful woman he loves.
Hurtling us at breakneck speed between the Regiment's crack assault teams, Whitehall's corridors of power and the heart of the Eurotunnel action, Red Notice is McNab at his devastatingly authentic, pulse pounding best.
Andy McNab was born December 28, 1959. He is a former British Soldier, turned novelist. He served in B Squadron 22 SAS for ten years and was trained as a specialist in counter terrorism, among other skills. He eventually became an instructor on the SAS selection and training team and an advisor to foreign special forces. McNab was captured during the Iraq War and was relentlessly tortured for six weeks, and took six months of medical treatment before he could return to active duty. McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. McNab came into public prominence soon after, when he published his account of the failed SAS mission, Bravo Two Zero. He has subsequently written several books, both autobiographical and a selection of fast paced action books, and a specially commissioned story for the Quick Reads Initiative to assist in improving adult literacy.
McNab's fiction draws extensively on his experiences and knowledge of Special Forces soldiering. McNab was technical weapons advisor and trainer on the hit Michael Mann film Heat (1995) and spent five months in Hollywood working closely with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Val Kilmer. As well as advising on weapons handling and use, McNab was drafted in to work out in detail how master-thief De Niro would go about pulling off robberies on an armoured car and a bank, and how cop Al Pacino would go about tracking him down and stopping him. Miramax has acquired the film rights to the first four of McNab's novels.
