This is unputdownable fiction with an uncomfortable storyline.
The central character, a journalist, falls into the plot of a potential scoop. He puts his life on the line to get to the bottom of a series of callous executions and in doing so transforms the lives of those around him.
This novel exposes the heavy human and moral cost of cheap supermarket food but in an un preachy way. I was nailed to my metaphorical seat from start to finish. Beautifully written by Adam Paul whose characters breathe life into the tale and impeccably narrated as ever by Sean Barrett

Starts slow, but stick with it. The pace picks up after a few chapters, until you won't want to stop listening! Social issues are explored while the main character, a journalist, tracks down a witness/victim. I'll be looking for more works by Paul Adam. Sean Barrett has become one of my favorite narrators!

I came to this after thoroughly enjoying Paganini' Ghost. I was a little concerned at the beginning that I might find the subject matter (exploitation of illegal immigrants) too harrowing. However the way this was approached enabled me to stick with it and enjoy yet another good storyline from this author. This man obviously does his homework and the issues covered in Knife Edge have changed my slant on both the subject of immigrant workers and the questionable methods employed in the food chain. I will certainly look at both quite differently in the future. Another good read by the excellent Sean Barrett.

This was the second Paul Adam book that I have listened to and it was even better than the first. Within this genre, there was a sufficiently rich and complex set of characters to complement the plot and whose back stories were touched upon in enough detail to make them believable. The story had two main threads that were interwoven to produce a coherent narrative and it drew on topical issues that will resonate with anyone living in the UK today. There were good changes of pace that reflected the situation of the protagonists. If there is a minor criticism, it is that the plot fitted together too well, so that small elements of detail in the later part of the story telegraphed the endgame. Finally, the narrator gave a virtuoso performance that made the characters and the story come alive. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a thriller with a good plot and good characterisation. Without doubt, I will certainly be listening to Paul Adam's other books.
