Publisher's Summary

On their first day of training with the Metropolitan Police, new recruits Jamie, Bunny, and Tina are asked to join a team of undercover detectives, a secret unit involved in the long-term penetration of criminal gangs. Their target? One of the world’s biggest drug dealers: Den Donovan, alias "Tango One".

To close in on their quarry, the three must go back into the outside world and become criminals themselves. But someone within the Met is pursuing an alternative agenda. Someone who has deliberately put their lives on the line.…

    "Another great read from Stephen Leather"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tango One to be better than the print version?

    For me yes, my eyesights getting worse and its was great to sit back on my sofa and soak it up. The narrator was very good and I got a real sense of the characters and the atmosphere of the action.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well Den Donavan the protagonist of course the lovable villain, who wouldn't want to be him?


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Greif’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes the tension between Den and his son, Leather describes it very well very realistic and any single father will feel that lump in his throat


    Any additional comments?

    Read my first Stephen Leather book over 20 years ago, after I met him in Thailand, read most of his novels, in fact read the paper back version of this years ago, I just heard they're making Tango One into a movie, so wanted to read it again before the movie comes out.

    "Compulsive listening"

    Stephen Leather at his best. Three would-be police recruits, instead of going off on their first day of training at Hendon college, are persuaded to live a different life and act as undercover agents to pin down a wanted drug dealer, otherwise known as Tango One. Although the story may be far-fetched, it's compelling and so compulsive that I couldn't switch off for the last two and a half hours as I had to know how it ended! The narrator really helped it along and handled the various accents professionally.Great entertainment!

    "Interesting but predictable ending"
    Would you listen to Tango One again? Why?

    Yes as I think it's been left open for a second book to follow


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tango One?

    The main character having people
    Killed


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    Kept my interest throughout but I was really disappointed with the ending.
    The narrator is ok but his interpretation of the main characters voice becomes a little annoying after a period of time.
