I'd read a couple of Andy McNab's earlier books and found them to be reasonable reads, so when Brute Force appeared on a list I grabbed a copy.
I'm not convinced that it was a wise move.
The story follows one of McNab's characters - Nick Stone. Stone used to be in the UK special forces, but is now in retirement when he comes under attack. The rest of the book is Stone trying to find out who wants him dead.
While the basic plot is okay, the book's pace is really really annoying. McNab seems to relish boring the reader to tears with overly detailed prose. Do we really need to experience each and every sensation of the character? I don't think so.
The other problem is that the chapters are incredibly short. Whoever edited the manuscript must have had the attention span of a goldfish, as the chapters in many cases run to a mere two or three pages, so they serve very little purpose.
If you can't find anything else - yes, but don't get a new copy. Borrow it from a friend or grab a secondhand copy.
