Publisher's Summary

Sarah Tucker - a young married woman, bored and unhappy with her life - becomes obsessed with trying to find a little girl who disappears after a neighbouring house is destroyed by a massive explosion. She soon discovers that people she thought long dead are still alive and those living are fast joining the dead. What begins in suburban south Oxford ends on a remote and unwelcoming Scottish island as the hunt for the missing child takes Sarah out of her marriage and onto a journey with a troubled ex-soldier. A brooding sense that there are secret forces raged against her make this story of a young woman caught in a web of deception powerful and dramatic.

Not bad, but this author has better

I really enjoyed Slow Horses by Mick Herron, and got this book based on that. But have to say that i found this to be a bit slow and drawn out in places. I really like the way Herron writes (no forced metaphors trying to prove he's witty - just good stuff), but the story itself didn't grab me here. It was ok, and worth a listen, i just wish it hadn't been as long maybe... Narration was good.

Not his best

This is a fairly typical Mick Herron. The basic premise is that the British Secret Service is basically totally immoral and its principal activity is murdering people to cover up appalling crimes by the military and government. The body count is enormous and the plot is far-fetched to the point of being completely incredible. But it's fast paced and there are unexpected twists every few pages and it's diverting enough.

Anna Bentinck is serviceable as the reader but I don't think her voice is really suited to this stuff.

The best Mick Herrons are the Slow Horses trilogy read by Sean Barrett.
