Publisher's Summary

Putin and the Russians have suffered too many killings of their own people in the past. Now they want the whole of the 'Prime Minister's private army' wiped out, including Blake Johnson and Charles Ferguson. Somebody is after them: Blake, Harry Miller, his sister, Monica, Harry Salter and Billy. The only people spared are Roper and Dillon. After surviving a car bomb, Ferguson heads a desperate search to uncover the perpetrator.

Not wanting any overt connections with their country, the Russians need the right kind of assassin, better than Carlos the Jackal. When such a man is discovered in a Lubiana prison, he is willing to take on the job as a price for his freedom...

An unlikely man, brilliant and terrifying, ingenious and deadly, he is the wolf at the door.

Narration

Loved the narrator. He even used different accents. His narration made the book very enjoyable.

  • Overall
    3 out of 5 stars

Just okay

Sean Dillon books are all becoming too much alike. The stories aren't going anywhere. This book started out with a bang and went out with barely a whimper.

The accents ruin this book

It may be a good story but the "Northern Ireland " accents are shockingly bad and ruin it. Sounds more Scottish than Irish at times and the stage Irish dialogue is terrible. Better off not trying or hiring someone who can pull off the accent to voice over Dillon et al .

Good and true to the written work.

Very good, although the accents the narrator put on didn't do the characters justice. However, still an excellent 'Read'

Worth reading.

This book is well read, and all though the story is a little obvious, it is still worth a listen.
