    Six-foot five-inch Thobela "Tiny" Mpayipheli was once a feared assassin and freedom fighter, trained by the Stasi and KGB. In post-apartheid South Africa, he’s happily working in a garage. But Tiny’s quiet domestic life is interrupted by a desperate plea from the daughter of a trusted old friend: He’s being held hostage after taking an incriminating hard drive and needs help. Tiny’s old training kicks in, and as he races across the South African landscape on a stolen BMW motorcycle to the rendezvous point, he is pursued by several interested and hostile forces, including South Africa’s Presidential Intelligence Unit.

    Last Man says: "The pacifist’s action thriller…."
    "One of the best audiobooks ever."

    Any additional comments?

    This was such a thuroughly enjoyable listen I did not want it to end. They story is interesting with good subplots and some unforeseen twists. The characters come alive with the skill of the narrator. Simon Vance has just the right pacing and his variety and depth of voices for each character really immerse you in the story. The unfamiliar names and places roll off his tongue with such ease and melody it is just a treat to listen.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone. It is time well spent.
