The fifth Inspector John Carlyle mystery finds him on the hunt for an Israeli hit squad leaving a trail of dead bodies across London. 'I need to talk to you...about your father.'
Inspector John Carlyle gets the shock of his life when his mother announces she is getting a divorce after 50 years of marriage. But that's nothing compared to the storm that erupts when he stumbles across an execution of a wealthy businessman in a luxury London hotel room. The victim is the latest in a line of bodies being left across London by a ruthless Israeli hit squad.
Going up against this deadly crew could prove to be fatal to Carlyle, but compared to his troubles at home, however, tracking them is something of a relief. But the body count continues to rise and then it gets personal.... Can Carlyle sweep the killers from London's streets before more innocent people die?

"4 stars for story as it rambled on a bit"
I find myself buying the titles of James Craig as they appear. Inspector Carlyle seems a dangerous man to work around as he keeps losing colleagues to sticky deaths.
It was good and very listenable to - apart from it rambling on a bit in the middle. Interesting family story on the sideline.
Good read/ listen. Voices match what I think the characters are like. Story was good with a slight twist so
"Carlyle Is A Hoot!"
I haven't read the print version.
Carlyle & his wife are really enjoyable characters. His is so well penned & there is lots of humour.
I haven't read the book, but there is a lot of expression in the reading and a lot of voices, due to the number of characters involved.
No, I can't say that there was.
This book was an opening dip into this character. I will read more. I love the humour and the detection. A lot of blood if made into a television series!
