I thoroughly enjoyed The Final Cut . . . it's different, weaving a tale of intrigue and mystery going back centuries. The diamond (Koh-i-Noor), part of the Jewels of the Lion exhibition belonging to Queen Mother in England is about to go on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. And despite every security precaution, it is stolen. The Koh-i-Noor hasn't always belonged to the Brits though . . . and legend has it that the diamond has healing powers . . . After listening to The Final Cut, I researched the history of the Koh-i-Noor, which is fascinating. This was a most satisfying and fun listen.

Would you listen to The Final Cut again? Why?
I hadn't planned to write a review on this book until I saw all the reviews that listed it as being boring. They couldn't be more wrong. This book would have made a wonderful movie. It's action-packed, filled with interesting characters a detailed story line and thoroughly fascinating. The narrators add to this. I hadn't read Coulter before. But I have read Clancy. I find the action in this book worthy of a Clancy novel or James Bond thriller. Well worth the credit and time. I have already listened three time in less than a month.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Final Cut?
The set up of the theft and description of the action surrounding it was so well done I started to see the whole thing as a movie in my head.
What about Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s performance did you like?
They both did a great job with nuanced accents to set each character. They did such a good job I had no trouble seeing the action in my head.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Very much so.
Any additional comments?
If you picked this looking for a traditional romantic thriller I can see why you would be disappointed. This is more of an action suspense piece with romantic hints in a new relationship around which this new series will evolve. As for boring, I can only shake my head in wonder at how far off the mark I view that statement.
