Release Blitz & 5 ⭐️ Review - Silent Weapon, A Street Soldier novel by Andy McNab


A high-speed chase through the backstreets of Lagos and an unexpected bomb explosion in the jungle – it’s all in a day’s work for soldier Sean Harker.

Looking forward to a well-earned break back home, Sean and his platoon fly back to the UK, only to find themselves fighting their way out of an airport hostage situation, and the country on high terrorist alert.

Barely escaping with his life, Sean must now embark on a dangerous mission: to locate a deadly weapon, capable of destruction on a massive scale

. . . a weapon no one will see coming.

Silent Weapon is the second book in the Street Soldier novels. I hadn't read the first book but didn't find that to be to problematic. This reads well as a standalone novel if anything it has given me the desire to read the first book and i'm really looking forward to continuing these novels. 

The street soldier books cover the life of Sean Harker. Sean and his unit are returning to England after six months of training and fighting against the insurgents in Nigeria. They are looking forward to some well earned down time. But on their return things quickly change at the airport. They are faced with  a hostile situation. And Sean is pulled into question when the attackers are found to be from his home town. His team is then sent on a mission looking for the weapons hidden by the terrorists, but what they find turns out to be much more lethal than they ever expected.  

Silent Weapon is a fast paced, action packed read. It was captivating with strong messages about the perception of radicalism on how extremism isn't limited to a certain religion or race. One thing i really enjoyed from this Andy McNab read was the humour and banter involved between the soldiers it gave a more realistic feel to the story. No hazing involved just good natured ribbing making this action packed read appealing to all ages. 


Andy McNab joined the infantry as a boy soldier. In 1984 he was 'badged' as a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. 

During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993. He wrote about his experiences in three books: the phenomenal bestseller Bravo Two Zero, Immediate Action and Seven Troop.

He is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone thrillers. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK. He is a patron of the Help for Heroes campaign.
