    "Surprisingly good"

    Had me hooked from the get go. Loved the narrator too. A gritty thriller that took a while to get going, interesting twists and sub plots.

    "Not the end!"

    I do hope this does not see the end of David Blake. Great story, gritty, no messing! Well done. Great performance as well.
