Jimmy thinks he knows about loss, about fear, about paranoia. He should think again. Every time Jimmy Thane has been faced with a crossroad, he's taken the wrong path. But after years of drinking and womanising, he has been given one last chance to save both his career and his marriage - he has seven weeks to transform a failing company. From the moment he enters the building there's something wrong - the place is too quiet, too empty.

Would you consider the audio edition of No Way Back to be better than the print version?

I don't know about better, but the narrator was good. A couple of accents were a little off, but he has great division between characters. It's more like hearing 2-3 people talking than one person telling a story.

What other book might you compare No Way Back to and why?

I can't really think of any one book to compare the story line to, which is what makes it a great book. It's a really original plot line. I could probably give you some comparisons for the first 95% of it but they would be different for the last 5% and that would give it away. It's really a crying game type twist at the end that just turns everything upside down. In fact, the book completely switches genera's on you in the last ten pages or so.

Which character – as performed by John Chancer – was your favorite?

The sponsor/detective; I love the hard nosed guy who's seen it all and doesn't take crap.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I certainly would have if it weren't for work, kids and life in general.

Any additional comments?

I'd also recommend "Switchback". It was really good as well. I'm reading "Con Ed" next; after a little Craig Johnson detour.
