Publisher's Summary

The gripping new race-against-time thriller by the best-selling author of Relentless, The Last 10 Seconds and The Final Minute.
I had a simple choice. Stay here and almost certainly be discovered.
Or get up and run.

Genuine Action Story With a Very Good Performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I will, because it is action from the very first minute to the last minute with an excellent performance with a female voice for female characters and male voices for male characters what ought to be a standard. At least for all top selling stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The doings of the main character filled most of the time in this story without him being any kind of an unrealistic superman.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Caribian island scene.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

Just as in some other Simon Kernic books, there are a few parts which doesn't really fit together and some strange matters are not explained at all. However, it is an action novel with the very best performance I've heard in ages what makes it a good choice.

I'm giving this a 4 rating. It is better than average. Yes, it is spies , bad guys, guns, egos, red herrings, terrorism -sort of- tosed togethr in a book that is fun to listeen to - with a trailer that I hopes leads to a sequel. It takes pkace in Britain so ee see their attitude to guns- so different to Amrtia's.
