Publisher's summary

Blood Oil sees the return of Ex-Navy Operative Lachlan Fox.

Now working as an investigative journalist, Lachlan Fox has been visiting some of the world's trouble spots. But a trip to Africa brings him face to face with a horror that could change him forever. Set in Nigeria, the US and UK, the book is about terrorism, oil supply and poverty.

From New York to Nigeria, Fox and his best mate Alistair Gammaldi race to unravel a sinister plan before each step is put into action. Lachlan Fox is going to prove, again, that there is a hero in all of us.

Ho Hum

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Oil to be better than the print version?

If I had read the print version, why would I be listening to the audio?

Have you listened to any of Adrian Mulraney’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

It is always irritating to hear narrators mispronounce words: Kabul is Cobble, not Kah-bull; and others. Then you have to feel that the story is suspect.

Any additional comments?

Why is there music at the beginning? Aside from the distraction of poor music the narrator starts talking, defining two terms that you can't understand because of the music. This author is no Clive Cussler.

too complicated and difficult to follow

Listened to about half of the book but could not finish the book. I do not recommend this book
