Loved it!

Great new (?) author. Hope he writes more with this protagonist. English law is very different and was well explained.

Extraordinary novel

I predict that this novel will be deemed a classic. The book is mesmorizing, his words magical. Actually a simple tale of a Russian aristocrat caught up in the politics of revolution and his determination to maintain his dignity and stay true to himself. But, what a tale it is. Slowly but surely you are captivated by this beautifully crafted tome. I don' t mean to be redundant but know that this is a book to be relished and not soon forgotten.

Mr Johnson you have made a mistake!

Let me preface this review saying that I have been a Longmier fan, hooked,
since book #1 and anxiously wait for the next installment. Perhaps this iteration willl improve but since I am at chapter 11 and there are only 6 to go it doesn't seem likely. You should go back to Vic, Henry and the gang. Without them the story is just so-so and not all that interesting.
If this was my first Longmier book i would never look for the next. However, I feel you will read some of the real reviews and not stray again.
I look forward to you being back in your own country with your own confederstes. We all love Walt!I
PS Hope it gets better.....

Immolating puppies! Too much for me! Murdering and then burning the man's face with gasoline fire to obscure recognition. Sick,sick,sick.

Very good but drawn out; could use some discreet editing. A little redundant at timrs. None the less it is an extraordinary life story.

Boring, repetative, nothing. A true "who cares" book. Not me. I have enjoyed his "Slough House" stories; it is hard to believe he would put his name to this drivel.

Interesting but not his best. At times the story becomes a bit farfetched. That said you will stay the course if only to to see if they all survive the "system".

I enjoyed this decent start to a new series. While Renée Ballard is not Harry Bosch, she seems to share his ethics and they probably would get along just fine. The narration however is so poor that it is difficult to develop a connection with the protagonist.
The flat presentation of this new and interesting series could kill it before it gains any headway.
I hope Connelly listens to the Audible version and insists it be re-done and that a more empathetic narrator performs his next novel.
I really dislike being critical of Ms. Moennig's performance or that of any artist but, in this case she is destroying Renée and Connelly.
Despite it all, I look forward to the next in this series.....with a different narrator!

AUDIBLE, DO YOU EVER PAY ANY ATTENTION TO THE REVIEWS AND ACT ON THER COMMENTS???

I preface this criticism with my long lasting admiration of Grisham. He has always been my “go to” author. That said, it is confounding to think that the same man who wrote A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row could demean himself with this drivel. The loosely defined plot is not even plausible. No woman today is as unknowing as the female principal. Sorry to say it does not even meet the criteria for a decent beach book. He said in an interview that his wife suggested the premise for the story. Perhaps she is the true author. Best he stay with his own ideas, which have served him quite well up to now. Regardless, I will not give up and look forward to his next foray into nonfiction or whatever else suits his fancy.
