Publisher's Summary

Hong Kong: The British administration is preparing to hand the capitalist colony back to communist China with the minimum of fuss. But Colonel Joel Tyler has other plans for the British Colony, plans which involve four Vietnam War veterans and a spectacular mission, making use of their unique skills. Vietnam was the one thing the four men had in common before Tyler moulded them into a team capable of pulling off a sensational robbery. But while the vets are preparing to take Hong Kong by storm, their paymaster, Anthony Chung, puts the final touches on an audacious betrayal. At stake is the future of Hong Kong….

One of Leather's Longest and Best Books!

What made the experience of listening to The Vets the most enjoyable?

So many subplots, the narrator, and detailed

What did you like best about this story?

Action, history, and the Sex!

What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Paul has always been one of my favorite narrators, his voice suits a crime story. His accents are great, even reading female characters are not awkward.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Umm over 20 hours? Probs not

Any additional comments?

Will highly recommend, but I'm not sure if people will like the lenth of this book. Maybe not the first book I will break them in with :)

A long book

An enjoyable book with many players who do eventually come together in a surprising climax which is as good as any other Stephen Leather book. It is a throwback to pre Chinese rule in Hong Kong which is a period of history I knew little about. Well worth sticking with, it is somewhat longer than I've come across before on Audible. Once again super narration by Paul Thornley.
