For all those who suffered withdrawal symptoms after reading Adrian McGinty's trilogy of violence and revenge, fear not, for here is Stuart Neville, promising to keep you on the edge of your seat or driving around the block. This is the sequel to Ghosts of Belfast, which should be read first. Gerard Doyle, as always, is terrific.
This is a completely enthralling story, with superb writing and unrelenting tension and suspense. The reader was perfect for listening while driving since he read in a monotone that allowed one to hear every word without changing volume. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks over the years and this ranks as one of my very favorites. I can't wait for my wife to hear it and would recommend it highly to all.
I avoid abridged books as a matter of principle, but this book would benefit from abridgment. Good story, overall, just way too rambling and wordy. Not up to McKinty's usual standard. The narrator is only average, though she does a good job with the Spanish.
Very poor narrator. Female narrator for the computer voice was terrific, however. Can't find her name here, but she deserves some sort of award.
Poorly written and narrated, but probably would be okay for a movie.
