In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

ASBOs may be the pride and joy of New Labour, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole - he takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. When one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street, Rumpole soon realizes something fishy is going on.

Another excellent book written by Raymond Chandler. The reader is quite good, however.

Certain people were put on this earth for a particular reason. Elliot Gould was put on this earth to read Raymond Chandler. Not star in Mash or any other movie. Another reviewer reminded me when he said Raymond needs to be listened to at half speed. So if you want to feel like you have died and gone to heaven buy the Elliot Gould versions of Chandler books.

What are not available on audible can be picked up at Amazon.

Deception, blackmail, murder, revenge - these are themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth, gun-smuggling or the cruel confidence trick Forsyth is never less than compulsive.Here are eight stories with the Forsyth touch - a brilliant and original collection by an incomparable craftsman of suspense.

He is under no illusions, however, about how the news will be greeted at home, having seen too many of his countrymen die mysteriously at the hands of the thuggish Russian security services....

This is Jack Higgins first book and in my opinion his best. I consider it a classic in that I will want to listen to it again and again. Written not too long after WW II it tells an interesting story that could have been. It will appeal to not only WWII fans but to anyone who likes a good story with suspense, a little humor, history and even common philosophy.

The narrator was great for this book and really adds to its listening pleasure.

Readers will want more of Jack Higgins books but beware none are as good as this one. They range from good all the way down to real pot boilers. Read all reviews carefully.

I really enjoyed this book and I found I couldn't stop listening even after I had finished my drive. The story was great as was the humor. Grover does an excellent job of narration.
I'm onto his second in the series now.
