I think this was a good book, but the narration was so bad that it ruined it for me. I stuck with it due to the story, but it was sometimes a difficulty. I think it was just a very bad match of narrator to book.

scholarly but uneven
There are parts to this story that are exciting in the best tradition of an "on the run" thriller. There are too many other parts where the author seems to argue an academic thesis through the medium of a thriller. The story drags at these points which far exceed the rapid-paced action sequences.
The heroine is an American, so it makes sense to have an American narrator. However, so many of the characters are British (and the text describes their regional accents), which throws into sharp relief the inability of the narrator to create credible males accents from Britain.
Trimmed to half the length and with a co-narrator to do the many British male voices, this might have been a top-class listen
