I am a big fan of Simon Kernick so saved this for a holiday listen. The characters are good as ever and the plot develops nicely but in the end there is no resolution of anything. Very unsatisfactory. I like some unresolved matters to lead into the inevitable sequel but absolutely nothing is resolved and I feel that it is just a way of making me buy the sequel, which I will not probably bother with. Much preferred his tighter style and plotting in earlier books.

I downloaded this one based on all the good reviews but I have to say I'm very surprised this book is averaging over 4 stars? The storyline is ok but very unrealistic. For example the very powerful, rich and well connected 'bad guys' are so paranoid two of them only call each other on a mobile at midnight in a soundproof reinforced concrete room but then leave the tools they've used to murder victims in an unlocked shed in the garden? Also the first half of the book had US slang and measurements and then switch to old UK imperial. Trying not to give specifics here so not to spoil it. The book felt like it had a ghost writer for parts of it? Also the book is read as the protagonist's memoirs which I felt took away a part of the storytelling. First book in this series and it will be my last I'm afraid.

I Want Some More!
Fast paced adventure, unpredictable, enjoyable. Violence a little gross at times. Who are the police engaged with this gang? Where is the man with the hat, Mr. Bone? What is the title of the sequal? I want to read it.

Usual fast paced story from Kernick spoiled
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Similar to other Kernick novels this is fast paced and exciting and demands little effort from the listener. This one is spoiled for me by the American references which are entirely out of place as the story is set in the UK and France. Not sure if I'll finish as they distract me.
What three words best describe Paul Thornley’s performance?
Believable accents tempo
