RJ ellory does it again! In my opinion one of his best novels
The main characters inner struggle
I will be looking fir novels narrated by Slade in the future
The last chapter was especially moving
"Do you trust the cops?"
This really got you thinking - straight out of the starters' gate you are told, the cop is bad and he killed people. However, as the story unwinds, you find yourself feeling sorry for him and hoping he can have a happy ending. You feel a bit unsure as it's as if your morals are being tested, which is the sign of a good, thought provoking book.
Vincent is a cop, he's in trouble and in debt. His heist goes wrong and now Mr Big wants it sorted.
"Gripping from start to finish"
Don't know, as haven't read the print version, but the narration was excellent. Each character was brought to life.
Bits were similar to Raymond Chandler's work. The central character is a flawed tough guy, but he's seeking redemption/ salvation.
Well paced, easy to listen to. He kept me gripped listening when I should have been sleeping as I was engrossed.
The final chapter is amazing with twist on twist, right to the last sentence.
This is gritty and hard edged but truly believable. Enjoyed every moment.
