Ever been offered a promotion that seems too good to be true? You know - the sort they'd be insane to be offering to someone like you. The kind where you snap their arm off to accept, then wonder why all your long-serving colleagues look secretly relieved, as if they're off some strange and unpleasant hook...
It's the kind of trick that deeply sinister companies like J.W. Wells & Co. pull all the time. Especially with employees who are too busy mooning over the office intern to think about what they're getting into. And it's why, right about now, Paul Carpenter is wishing he'd paid much less attention to the gorgeous Melze, and rather more to a little bit of job description small-print referring to 'pest' control...

A great follow on from The Portable Door.More twists and turrns than a mountain highway!!
Paul Carpenter of course!!The typical gormless anti-hero!!
Great character voices,and great continuity of pace.
"Great Premise. Lively Narration. Unexpected Turns."
The world in which it was set was had many possibilities. I also liked the way the possibilities were discovered.
I would try another Tom Holt. The imagination demonstrated in the world in the book is certainly worth giving another go.
His voice was easy to listen to but also manged to convey the emotions of the characters.
Not that sort of book. It was an adventure story but while you could sympathize with the characters you did not empathize. I did not wan the main character to die but his possible death was not of concern.
Story flows and the characters are very believable .A great story to get lost in and not have to take seriously.
Main character learning to be a hero was all about the paperwork
Slips between characters effortlessly and never lets you lose the thread
Not a book if your looking for a cry but plenty of laughs and often has me giggling to myself on long train journeys.
An easy listen that can be picked up and dropped for as long as it takes without any difficulties to get back into it.
"Literally No Idea"
Er... No idea. I felt baffled and distant from it for most of it but it's probably my fault for not realising it was the second in a series. I didn't think it stood up on its own.
It was very good.
Maybe, if you'd heard the first one. I think it was extremely complicated plot and might have been better to read. It didn't suit listening to in short bursts.
"Another great listen"
Ray Sawyer's narration is absolutely brilliant. His use of a plethora of voices to portray Holt's characters bring In Your Dreams to life.
Again, Tom Holt's writing is entertaining, while at the same time a good, light read (or listen!)
It took me a while to get into this one, but once I did I was entirely hooked.
"can't be faulted"
my husband jokes Ivan having an online affair with ray sawyer as I listen to ray of Tom holts books more than my husband. but he is now addicted as well. great book great delivery
