    Story
    (149)

    From Tokyo, to London, to Johannesburg, high-level bankers are being gruesomely tortured and murdered. The killer, caught in a fleeting glimpse on a surveillance camera, has been described as a psychopath with an eye patch. And that means Gregor Volkov, Derrick Storm's old nemesis, has returned. Desperate to figure out who Volkov is working for and why, the CIA calls on the one man who can match Volkov's strength and cunning - Derrick Storm.

    What disappointed you about Storm Front?

    I expected a little bit of fluff, but I expected it to be more consciously tongue in cheek: funnier! The book took itself much too seriously. The plot was too cheesy (Romanian orphans? Really?)


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More balance between humour and plot. The plot was good enough for a TV show - but not deep enough for a book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Petkoff’s performances?

    The performance was one of the worst things about it. If it was read by a subtler reader, who was able to bring the characters more alive than they were written, it would have helped. I enjoy the TV show, and I could hear in the writing how it was trying to capture some of that mood - but the narrator wasn't up to the task - he played everything on the same level.
