Publisher's Summary

The death of Tom Bettany's estranged 26-year-old son brings him back to London. His return sparks the interest of everyone from mobsters to MI5 officers - he may have thought he left his old life as a spy behind, but nobody just walks away.
Tom Bettany is working at a meat processing plant in France when he gets the voicemail from an English woman he doesn't know telling him that his estranged 26-year-old son is dead. Liam was smoking dope on his London balcony when he fell. Now for the first time since he cut all ties years ago, Bettany returns home to London to find out the truth about his son's death. It may be the guilt he feels about losing touch with his son that's gnawing at him, or maybe he has actually put his finger on a labyrinthine plot, but either way he is going to get to the bottom of the tragedy, no matter whose feathers he has to ruffle. But there are many people who are interested to hear Bettany is back in town, from incarcerated mob bosses to the highest echelons of MI5.

Loved the book, hated the ending

Narrator was great, I think he really made the words come alive.

There is something really enjoyable about Mick Heron's writing style. I'm not sure if it is the story, the slow build, the slightly off-beat characterization, or something else...but I seem to be pulled into the story eventually, every time.

I was somewhat disappointed when this. One came to an end. I suppose I knew it had to happen, but I was no less surprised when it did happen.

Perhaps a sequel? Hollywood can do it, why not you? Hehehe😚

Sad tale

I'm a fan of Mick Herron. When I buy one of his books I always know I'm going to get excellent writing and thoroughly developed characters and plot. I do recommend this book, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as some of his others. I think the main reason for this is that I found the book quite sad with an ending that left me hanging... it's well done, but I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about it except to say that it's worth a listen.
The narration is wonderful.
