What made the experience of listening to The Masters' Key the most enjoyable?

Ms. Hanson's books are always guaranteed to thrill, and The Master's Key is certainly no exception. The second in the series, it can still be enjoyed as a stand alone novel although knowledge of the preceding book, 3 Lies, definitely adds depth in understanding the animosity between Clint and his ex partner, Todd. Vindictively, Todd sets out to destroy his old friend's company by breaking the trust needed to sustain it; and so Boston comes under cyber attack, forcing Clint to travel the world searching for Todd to stop him.
Well written, exciting and with excellent characterisations, The Master's Key also enjoys detailed explanation about the computer world and it's workings which even a technical illiterate like myself can follow - all in an easy, fascinating way. Never boring, but it can be scary! Fortunately, there is also humour to lighten the sometimes terrifying possibilities.
The narration by Patrick Nolan is also mostly good, well paced, clear and with distinctive dialogue. Unfortunately, his accents, and in particular the British one, leads a lot to be desired, reminding me of Dick Van Dyke's dreadful attempts in Mary Poppins. Very annoying for me, a Brit, but should not offend listeners from other countries.
My thanks to the author, narrator or publisher of The Master's Key from whom I received a complimentary copy of this book, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an honest review. And I can honestly recommend this book to all enjoying well written thrillers with excitement, human interest and terrific description.
