Publisher's Summary

David Blake likes to think he’s no gangster. He's a white-collar criminal, working for gangster Bobby Mahoney, enjoying the money pouring in. Trouble is, a big chunk of that money has just gone missing along with Geordie Cartwright. Has Geordie done a runner or been killed by a rival gang? In a bloody finale, Blake has to make an agonising choice and someone has to pay the ultimate price....

Love this narrator

If you could sum up The Drop in three words, what would they be?

Newcastle Cracking characters

What did you like best about this story?

actually I loved the guy who read it. His accent was incredible and he never missed a beat

Which character – as performed by David Nellist – was your favorite?

I think he did a great job with the main character but i also really liked his women's voices and kinaiir. he was great as the Glasgow family

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

it made me laugh out loud at some of the phrases I recognize from my childhood and at those things he said about his girlfriend Laura. It was funny that her mothers ashes saved him.

Any additional comments?

i have purchased the other two books and the other one you have with the same narrator. it was like listening to Jimmy Nail.

A gripping graphic insight into the world of crime

This book is a gripping tale that is enhanced totally by the narrater David Nellist. His wonderful Jordie accent kept us amused and that coupled with the author's humour at times had us laughing out loud. We were totally absorbed for our journey across France and had to park up to hear the end of the story we were so engrossed. A brilliant way to pass the time on boring roads. The story is simple but well thought through with an interesting twist that one does not expect. It is quite a strange thing to find yourself on the side of the baddies and not wanting them to get caught. A book I would recommend to anyone who can understand the Jordie humour and accent not a book for someone trying to learn English!!!
