Another great read from Stephen Leather

Would you consider the audio edition of Tango One to be better than the print version?

For me yes, my eyesights getting worse and its was great to sit back on my sofa and soak it up. The narrator was very good and I got a real sense of the characters and the atmosphere of the action.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well Den Donavan the protagonist of course the lovable villain, who wouldn't want to be him?

Have you listened to any of Stephen Greif’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes the tension between Den and his son, Leather describes it very well very realistic and any single father will feel that lump in his throat

Any additional comments?

Read my first Stephen Leather book over 20 years ago, after I met him in Thailand, read most of his novels, in fact read the paper back version of this years ago, I just heard they're making Tango One into a movie, so wanted to read it again before the movie comes out.
