Andy McNab talks about his work with the Six Book Challenge in the video below.


September 2012

The Reading Agency is delighted that bestselling novelist and former SAS soldier Andy McNab will lead its 2013 Six Book Challenge to help get even more adults reading more. He will be meeting Six Book Challenge participants at events all over the UK and all completers will receive a certificate signed by Andy, in his role as 2013 Challenge ambassador.

Andy McNab says: “I’m a perfect example of how reading can change your life. I had the reading age of an 11 year old when I was 17 and I only became a confident reader when I joined the Army. But once I started I couldn’t stop – and that’s what the Six Book Challenge is all about.”

SAS soldier and bestselling thriller writer Andy McNab is back with a brand new hero…

Deep beneath the English Channel, a small army of Russian terrorists has seized control of the Eurostar with 400 hostages.
One man stands in their way. An off-duty SAS soldier is hiding inside the train.
Alone and injured, he’s the only chance the passengers have of getting out alive.

Meet 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 the 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.
