Publisher's Summary

Sonny's on the run. Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates, and absolves them of their sins. He's been lied to his whole life. But then one prisoner’s confession changes everything. He knows something about Sonny’s disgraced father. Sonny wants revenge. He needs to break out of prison and make those responsible pay for their crimes. Whatever the cost.

    "Fantastic"

    Even better than Harry Hole. Brilliant story and a real page turner. Jo Nesbo just gets better and better. Excellent read.

    "Page-turner"

    Rather too many characters! If it had been a book, I could have kept markers in many pages …. as it was, I should have kept a list …….

    "Good stuff"

    Could listen to Shaun Barrett read a phone book and he would make it good.. But even better when he gets a good story like this one...

    Loved it and was rooting for sunny all the way...

    "Brilliant"

    Really enjoyable, I couldn't put it down and listened way too late in the evening - not good for my sleep pattern.

    There was an excellent plot, good characters, lots of twists and great writing.

    Sean Barrett never fails to impress!

    "NOT HIS BEST"

    I never thought I'd be disappointed by Jo Nesbo, but this is so below his brilliance if the Harry Hole books and Headhunters.. Much less intensity of plot than usual and with so few of the usual red herrings. I guessed correctly about characters many times, something I'm never able to do with the Harry Hole books. Please Jo give us another Harry Hole book soon.

    However, redeeming feature was the always brilliant narration of Sean Barrett , deserving of some award.

    "A little disappointing"

    I am a huge fan of Nesbo, and I have listened to just about all the books. But I found this one I necessarily long and John st a touch indulgent.
    However, Sean Barrett, the reader was excellent as always.

    "Jo Nesbo - just fabulous."

    I only wish Jo Nesbo could write faster! I manage to get utterly engrossed in his books from page one and they never disappoint. Clever, clever books. The Snowman was my favourite but this is a close second. Just can't wait until Harry Hole is back!
