    (27)

    Morrissey, head of London's Regional Crime Squad, is trying to bring down a financial empire which is involved with organised crime and drug smuggling. He enlists the help of a Welshman and his pretty ex-girlfriend to aid him in the 'Snakes and Ladders' operation.Michael Francis Gilbert (1912- 2006) is recognized as one of the most versatile British mystery writers. He was a lawyer in London for many years and at one point had Raymond Chandler as his client. He wrote almost every sort of mystery and thriller.

    Marina says: "One of the best Brits, and one of his best books"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Final Throw to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version. My guess is that the narrator that I listened to could NOT be beat. He was great.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I couldn't tell for sure where it was leading? The narrator made enough mistakes with pauses to actually make it BETTER than it would have ordinarily have been.


    Which character – as performed by Andrew Timothy – was your favorite?

    The Welshman........David Morgan.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love the understated wit and sarcasm of the star, Morgan. Tremendous.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is no doubt not for everyone. But if you have a preference for clever banter and a narrator that you feel like you know, I heartily recommend!
