As dawn breaks on a snowy February morning, a refrigerated lorry is found parked in the heart of London's Chinatown. Inside, 12 women, apparently illegal immigrants, are dead from hypothermia. But in the cab, DC Max Wolfe finds 13 passports. Twelve dead women. Thirteen passports. The hunt for the missing woman will take Max Wolfe into the dark heart of the world of human smuggling, mass migration and 21st-century slave markets.
There is a fate worse than death in this fifth instalment of the sensational Max Wolfe series, from best-selling author Tony Parsons.

"Gripping Contemporary Thriller"
Great characters in a strong series that is well plotted (if you can forgive the coincidences). It's pacy and full of action as well as reflections on the world as it was and how it is now. Well read by Colin Mace, he's made it his own now. Smiths of Smithfield and BMW should be pleased with their free publicity. Kept me hooked all the way.
"Awful awful awful"
Where do I start?
Awful book. The narrator is good but the story is dreadful. He is a policeman who lives in a central London loft apartment and drives a BMWX5. The BMW X5 Is talked about a lot, he climbs into the BMW X5, slows the BMW X5 and walks around it. Enough of the BMW X5!!He seems to never follow any rules or police procedures of any kind but it's ok because no one does, the entire Met has gone maverick. The dialogue is appalling and the plot is just gibberish. I'm no pedant but this really is pushing the very edge of believability.
Oh and he had a child and 24 hour child care. It's really bad and so bad it's occasionally funny.
But really don't bother.
"love these books"
love the author, love the narrator. he has built up characters that you want to hear more about as much as the story, having said that the plot and content of this book were excellent.
Once again I could not stop listening to this latest novel by Tony Parsons. It gripped me from the start.
I guessed the twist right at the start, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment. A great 4th book in a brilliant series. Excellent narration.
