From the brutal baseball-bat attack on a female character in chapter one to the slightly muddled extra plot point at the end, this 13-disk novel is dark, dark, dark.
As an audiobook, one device the author uses comes across much more effectively than it would in print. The story involves a series of road trips and monotonous activity - in these times, various characters reflect on their history or the history of others, thus delaying the return to the main narrative and making the long drive, plane flight or walk back to the highway seem longer and more real.
A bit long, but extremely entertaining. The best drawn character is the female assassin Sylvie, and unfortunately one of the weakest is Wendy Harper, the female protagonist. A very interesting character is introduced in the third act and the plot intersections gradually weave into a fairly solid thread. Michael Kramer's narration is a bit florid but given the material, it works most of the time.
Enjoyable, perhaps even memorable. A good long walk on the dark side. Enjoy.

I really liked this book. I purchased this as a Daily Deal but it is certainly worth a credit had it not been on sale.
There are enough reviews and the the publisher's summary so I won't restate the book's details.
Although an earlier book, Thomas Perry never disappoints with his excellent writing style. His characters are believable, likable and flawed. Even the good guys. But not flawed enough to make the reader dislike them.
Michael Kramer does an outstanding job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
