Publisher's Summary

A modern classic from one of the great thriller writers of our era. In the villages and on the mountains of County Tyrone, in the heartland of the Provisional IRA’s most active Brigade, the golden rule is ‘Hear nothing, see nothing, know nothing’. To collaborate with British Intelligence is to invite an inescapable death sentence. But there is word on the mountain that inside the Brigade there is a ‘tout’, an informer. He will be identified, interrogated, tortured, then hooded and shot. Gary Brennard, the MI5 field agent, and Parker, who runs the informer, have to protect their man at all costs: he is the critical asset to hold on to until the stakes are high enough…and if the innocent step into the crossfire, that’s just bad luck.

To die barefoot...

Where does The Journeyman Tailor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its a slightly shorter audiobook than I would normally listen to, balanced by great writing. From the first moment it creates atmosphere, tension and gravitas.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Perhaps it could have no other ending, but somehow it was the weakest part for me.

What about Brian Cox’s performance did you like?

Without overdoing it, he creates drama and believability

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

It made me sad for the time and the age... the brutality hiding behind honor

Any additional comments?

Beautifully written story and narrated like a master
