"Authentic...exciting stuff with plenty of heart palpitating action." (Daily Mail)
The narration is all over the place,hard to follow the storyline as in its description.
Didn't make it there yet.
Quite a lot.
"another great leather novel"
I've read all but 2 of Stephen Leathers novels and, there isn't a bad book amongst them. as usual this book is full of great action with a gripping plot. One of Leathers strong points is his ability to draw multiple plot lines together to produce great books.
"Stephen Leather tunne rats"
Bit confusing at first but enjoying now. Excellent narator great for walkng the dog
Enjoyed the story although I got lost a couple of times. I am a huge fan of Stephen Leather's books.
"Poor story, dreadful narrator"
This really isn't very good. The book is riddled with cliches, stuffed with cardboard cutout stereotypical characters, the police procedural aspects are an insult to the intelligence, and the 'twist' can be seen a mile off. To make matters worse, the narrator is truly awful - gutteral Cockney with a range of accents seemingly inspired by Little Britian or bad 70's British sitcoms. Avoid.
