Trying to prove his love to Delphine, Tom Buckingham hops aboard a train she is on that is headed for Paris; he wants to win her back after making one too many mistakes. As luck would have it, this is the same train that Laszlo Antonov, with the help of his fellow terrorists, has chosen to take over as he attempts to escape justice. The plan should go down without a hitch, but they never considered running into Sergeant Tom Buckingham, an off-duty SAS soldier who knows exactly who Laszlo Antonov is and what he is capable of.
SAS: Red Notice is a fast-paced page-turner that truly kept me at the edge of my seat. There are a lot of chapters in this book--118 plus an epilogue--and this breaking up of the narrative, as it switches between the many characters and locations, creates a lot of suspense and makes it hard to put down. The development of the characters and the story continues right up until the very end, leading to shocking revelations and action throughout. At times the technical language and terms used by McNab could be confusing. While I understand its importance to the story, there were a couple of times that I was unsure of what I was reading; however, I didn’t feel as though I was truly missing anything and that I still had a grasp on the story and situations. SAS: Red Notice is an action-packed novel, with a touch of love, full of explosive people and revelations.
