    1922: Commander Joe Sandilands returns from a stint in India and immediately finds himself up to his neck in a tricky political situation. London is reeling from IRA atrocities and Joe is further plagued by the machinations of a spy ring being run under his nose by a Russian émigrée princess. When a war hero is gunned down and the life of a popular Englishman is threatened, Joe knows he has only days to root out the person behind the killings.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm a huge fan of the Joe Sandilands books, and have bought every offering in the series. The previous narrator (Terry Wale?) was excellent. The new narrator (Andrew Wincott) was, for me, a disaster. If I could give him less than one star, I would. I found his lack of understanding of the major characters infuriating, and his overall tone so offensive that I gave up on the audiobook after the first three or four chapters, something I rarely do.

    I then read the book on my Kindle, and enjoyed it greatly. Though I'm angry that I had to pay for it twice, and I certainly won't be buying any future audiobooks in the series if they're narrated by Andrew Wincott, I couldn't recommend the books themselves more highly.
