The premise of the book was good; however I was disappointed in the development of the plot. Reader was fair.

I've enjoyed David Hewson's Rome series of detective novels and so was expecting to enjoy this audio book, which I did from the first riveting chapter. It's a different style of book to the Rome series, which comprise intricately constructed webs of clues often linked to some historical artifact or painting. The 'Promised Land' reminded me more of a Robert Goddard thriller with twists and turns and double-crosses. It has a touch of The Fugitive (the TV series starring David Janssen in the 1960s for those of us of a certain age!) in that a man has been imprisoned for apparently killing his wife but the twist in this book is that he can't be sure and neither is the listener until the end of the book.

I enjoyed this book immensely. It took a little time to get into as I had to get used to the narrator's accent but then I was hooked.There is a lot of very droll humour as well as twists and turns galore.The huge leaps forward in technology we take foregranted over the past twenty years are very obvious when we see them through the eyes of a 'dinosaur' who has been in prison as the rest of the world moved ahead without him. Thanks to this technology I was listening into the early hours as I HAD to know 'who dunnit'.Loved it.
