Publisher's Summary

The plan is so complex, the target so well protected that the three snipers have to rehearse the killing in the seclusion of the Arizona desert. Cole Howard of the FBI knows he has only days to prevent the audacious assassination. But he doesn’t know who the target is or where the crack marksmen will strike.

Former SAS sergeant Mike Cramer is also on the trail, infiltrating the Irish community in New York as he tracks down Mary Hennessy, the ruthless killer who tore his life apart. Unless Cramer and Howard agree to cooperate, the world will witness the most spectacular terrorist coup of all time.…

Excellent Book

The book and story were excellent, my only criticism is the accents used by the narrator.

Oh dear the accents - still a good book

What made the experience of listening to The Long Shot the most enjoyable?

The storyline. It is a really good book

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Long Shot?

No one thing stands out

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Accents. The best way to enjoy this book is simply to imagine many of the characters are aliens. eg the Irish come from Mars, the Americans from Neptune and the Italian New York FBI agent from Pluto. That way you stop thinking about the atrocious accents and can enjoy the story. The narrator has a pleasant voice but his accents and pronunciation of some words leave a lot to be desired.

The long shot

Good story and I liked the characters however the narrater's impression of an irish accent had little resemblance to the real thing.

One of his best!!

Outstanding on many levels. Story full of suspense and builds to a satisfying conclusion.
I personally enjoyed The Chinaman for the unusual subject matter, and the poignant story of correct an injustice. But, this story keeps on building! So glad that I can play it through my car radio as couldn't stop listening!
Tone, pace and delivery are excellent too.
Having spent too long serving in NI, there was a certain level of smug satisfaction for a job well done.
Great story, expertly crafted and delivered.

Wish I could have saved this story for my next boring flight to Australia. Would have been the perfect company on the flight.

Edge of the seat

Great storyline from the outset, 2 stores running alongside each other coming together in brilliant fashion towards the end, still a few loose ends so look forward to exploring Stephen Leather titles

Predictable and too long.

Easy to listen to but poor attention to detail. Not the worst book I've downloaded but one of them. First and last by this author.
