Avoid, unless you know and love this author

I have never heard a narrator as bad as this one on Audible. She was unable to keep the voices of different characters distinct during the narrative. I could not carry on listening after I reached the halfway mark, it was just too awful.

Unless you are already a fan of this author you should avoid this book.

Too Preachy

Sub theme of transgender issues was like listening to a lecture and was a distraction from the main plot. Not as enjoyable therefore as previous books in the series.

Sophie Allen does it again

Sophie Allen does it again, with a great team behind her. Great follow up to previous novels.

Third book in series another corker.

The Sophie Allen series of novels by Michael Hambling are most certainly addictive. When you start one, you know you are in for a good read and an enjoyable experience. You dont need to have read the earlier books. You can start with any in the series, but they are so good I would recommend you read them all.
