Whenever I finish a Tim Weaver book, I think never again. Then I go and buy another and wonder why I did that. What a ridiculous storyline. Could the author stuff anything else into an already over stuffed plot which is so unbelievable you have to laugh? Amensia, deception, murder, embezelling, drugs, lonely islands, cruise ships, interogation, monsters.... step sisters, prostitutes... , sinister comings and goings, and all solved by the intrepid David Raker who seems to have bottomless pockets and can trip around the world solving mysteries no other person can solve. Yawn. All narrated in a grey dreary voice to match the whole humourless story. I lost count how many times I had to keep going back to previous chapters as I found my mind had wandered away from the storyline or the fact I didnt even particularly care. 13 hours listening to a book touted as a best seller, tense thriller, a page turner... Definitely the last time for me.

I was gripped by the suspense early on but two thirds into the story I thought it was being excessively drawn out. A concentration on too much unnecessary detail irritated me. I wanted the story to notch up a gear.

a gripping story full off twists and turns at every page turn. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and suspense. However I think ît is time for David Raker to take a back seat and put his feet up, surely his nine lives are up after this adventure. I can't wait for his next book.
