Outstanding audiobook. I truly enjoyed it. The characters were wonderful and as usual the ending has a twist. The plot starts a little slow, and the ending is a little sad, but I loved it. I hope he continues to publish and audible continues to carry his work. I disagree with the other review, I thought the narration was well done. The same narrator has done some of his other work which I also enjoyed. Overall, I think if you like his other stuff you will enjoy this.

This is my 11th Forsyth novel. Before I proceed, let me say that I would recommend virtually every one of Forsyth's books. He is a GREAT author - Day of the Jackal and The Fourth Protocol are two of the best suspense/espionage novels written. His short stories in "The Veteran" and "No Comebacks" are also fantastic.
However, this is, without question, the least of all of Forsyth's novels. I believe that the reason is simple - probably 60% of hte book revolves around the mundane purchase of illegal arms, hiring of mercenaries and sailors, and making sailing arrangements. Not too exciting.
While there are a few undercurrents (including an assassination attempt), this book just didn't hold my interest like the others.
I must say that I don't recoomend this book, however, I must also say that this is the ONLY Forstyh book that I wouldn't recommend. There are other great Forsyth books on Audible (The Avenger, No Comebacks, The Day of the Jackal and The Afghan) - and I highly reccommend them all. But unless you're a diehard Forsyth fan and want to read everything he's written, you may want to pass on this one.
