Not my favorite book. The book was performed very well, but the story wasn't very interesting.
This is my first George Keen book and Simon Vance as the narrator absolutely loved his voice and his pause and his professionalism. The book was good very suspenseful . I don't know what to say other thsn it's a great detective novel . Typical of what I like , one of those nice British novels that I like and there's not really more I can say. It was a great mystery, the writer was awesome with the storyline . I mean it's your typical detective story but to my was something that you did drag you into the storyline and you were able to listen to it and derive from from what is said and put together the puzzeled meaning.
I think that it made the reader get involved with Keens thinking as far as who you thought was behind Harry's murder. I thought many times, but was wrong in the end. Who is behind all this ? assassins auction had me thinking . it also left me a little confused because to my understanding the person behind it wasn't even his child so a bit confused at the ending.
Official DeAnn DeVille Review
A great mystery story with enough twists and turns to keep me hooked to the end. Kenny Gabriel is the PI, a London geezer with a deadpan wit and quite a few nice one-liners, like a down-at-heel Philip Marlowe. His home ground is an atmospheric Soho, with its shady past always lingering in the background. Simon Vance is, as ever, a fabulous narrator. He’s obviously enjoying himself, with his cast of larger than life characters. Great stuff.

If, like me, you like a PI who is the wrong side of 50, has personal problems and drinks too much, Kenny Gabrial will satisfy you. This author is new to me and I look forward to more from him. The writing is reminiscent of detective stories gone by, but well written, in a modern context. The characters, places and circumstances are richly drawn and I settled in from the first chapter, thoroughly enjoying the ride through to the end. Simon Vance's narration is faultless.
