The Vets

Hong Kong: The British administration is preparing to hand the capitalist colony back to communist China with the minimum of fuss. But Colonel Joel Tyler has other plans for the British Colony, plans which involve four Vietnam War veterans and a spectacular mission, making use of their unique skills. Vietnam was the one thing the four men had in common before Tyler moulded them into a team capable of pulling off a sensational robbery. But while the vets are preparing to take Hong Kong by storm, their paymaster, Anthony Chung, puts the final touches on an audacious betrayal.

    "Leaden"

    I gave it three stars because, well, two would be harsh. The story isnt bad if a little predictable, although maybe I'm the only one who saw the end coming but no matter; my problem is with the characters and especially the dialogue, both of which seemed full of cliches and sterotypes - the dialogue between the banker's wife and the leading Chinese character was leaden and could have come from a 70s woman's magazine. The attention to deta was good, the basic storyline was okay but relied on all the victims being completely stupid and overly wide-eyed annd innocent

    "Unputdownable!"

    I'm a Stephen Leather fan. Always have been, and after listening to this novel, always will be!



    You read the synopsis and think you have a fair idea about what the novel will be about. You're wrong. You wont get it until Leather wants you to, which is right at the end.



    Narrated really well by the usual narrator, whom I also love. You will too.
