Publisher's Summary

An Alex King prequel, set 17 years before The Contract Man.

In the last days before signing the peace agreement, an IRA splinter cell mounts an operation on the British mainland using English criminals. This unprecedented move intrigues MI6, and they assume command of MI5’s surveillance operation.

A career criminal is released from prison and aims to win back the wife and child his sentence has cost him, but before he can, he is forced back into his old world. The stakes have changed, and his family have become leverage for the most ruthless people imaginable.

A woman imprisoned in an abusive relationship, desperate to escape with her son and rekindle her past, becomes the pawn in a deadly world of deception, violence, and retribution.

A clandestine wing of the secret intelligence service tests its newest recruit. Alex King has trained and operated in the shadowy world of intelligence, and now, he must kill for his country, but before he can, he needs to discover more about the men he has been sent to kill.

Terrible

Has Shadows of Good Friday put you off other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

American accent, stilted delivery, very poor depiction of the story and, most of all very poor UK accents.

Worst Narrator

I've listen to many audio books and this is the first time I've been compelled to leave a review... This is quite possible the worst narrator I've heard! I have no idea why he thought his stupid, stilted speech was necessary?! completely ruined the book for me, to the point that I had to stop after a few chapters. So disappointed.
