Is there anything you would change about this book?
Some of the dialogue between charactgers is irritating, with Tango One in particular often ending his statements with yeah?
Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen Leather again?
Yes> I am a Stephen Leather fan, having read all of the Dan Shepherd series so far released and several other titles.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I might have enjoyed this book more if it had been read by Paul thornely, who is the master of the Stephen Leather novels and short stories.
Any additional comments?
The book offered so much, and although the story line is acceptable, I don't regard this as Stephen Leather's best offering. I might have enjoyed this more if the dialogue was more natural, and the audio publishers had chosen a better narrator.
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.
Stephen Leather at his best. Three would-be police recruits, instead of going off on their first day of training at Hendon college, are persuaded to live a different life and act as undercover agents to pin down a wanted drug dealer, otherwise known as Tango One. Although the story may be far-fetched, it's compelling and so compulsive that I couldn't switch off for the last two and a half hours as I had to know how it ended! The narrator really helped it along and handled the various accents professionally.Great entertainment!
