Steven Billy Mitchell CBE , DCM , MM (born 28 December 1959), usually known by the pseudonym and pen-name of Andy McNab, is a novelist and former Special Air Service soldier. [1] [2] In August 2014, McNab was one of 200 public figures who were signatories to a letter to The Guardian expressing their hope that Scotland would vote to remain part of the United Kingdom in September's referendum on that issue. [21] Surely, after all this time, enemies will have faded away, but he says not, citing his last credible threat just before the pandemic. He also remains anonymous to protect the people he worked with, who remained in Northern Ireland.

When McNab joined the army he was found to have the reading age of an eleven-year-old. Shortly before his seventeenth birthday he read his first book, entitled Janet and John. Speaking in 2019, McNab recalled how "I can vividly remember the sense of pride and achievement I felt. It was meant for primary school children but I didn’t care ... From then on I read anything and everything I could get my hands on." [10] Military career [ edit ] a b "Stinson, James 'McNab tells of killing IRA man in 1979 gun battle' Irish News, 1 August 2005".

These are things you can exploit in different software systems that nobody knows about, so you keep them and they are like holding a nuclear weapon. After turning to petty crime and a spell in borstal, he was saved by joining the Army where he learnt to read. He famously remains anonymous. You won’t see his face pictured in the media or on TV, unless he’s in the shadows or behind a book.

Pike was hired to do a job to steal things. The real job is to steal a cryptocurrency passkey so that someone would get billions. The whole premise is a bit odd.

Nothing upsets me these days,” he continues. “It’s quite easy for me to just cut away. There’s a bit of stoicism there, as well.
