I'm not sure who would enjoy it. The story was tepid, and the narration was awful.
Probably not. I liked the way Dick Francis brought horses and racing into other worlds - I always finished his books knowing something new about ... oh, banking, or weaving or wine making, for example. Refusal was a pretty standard thriller/mystery.
Tony Britton. He was great. To my ear, Martin Jarvis makes characters sound whiny.
The story didn't make sense. I felt like the author said "hey, I'd like to write a book that involved middle-eastern characters" and made up a story to fit. Also, the "Ma Jones" interlude was just plain weird - he was fixated on boobs. I've read John Sandford / Camp novels since the very beginning, and this was one of the worst ones.

Most of them ... there were a few funny scenes, but the characters were weak, stereotyped and shallow.
I wish he'd take a couple years off and get some new juice going.
I thought the characters were unbelievable, especially the immediate intimacy between the male and female lead. I stopped listening.
I tried to rate as 0 star but couldn't.
