I enjoyed this book and the first in the series. This is one series I recommend you read in order or you will not understand some of the under tones of the characters. I do feel sorry for Lewellyn. He gets beat up ALL THE TIME. I think the author could give him a break in the next story. The characters are quirky but written in a way that makes them authentic. .
I also think these would make a great tv series.

It was a decent book but nothing extraordinary.
Around middle to 2/3 through it just dragged.

This series already feels like it is settling down into a familiar and comfortable rhythm. The narration is smoothly consistent and the two main characters continue to develop and share a good chemistry. I was a little surprised that after the first book seemed to spend quite some time introducing an impressive array of characters in London very few of them made more than a small dent in this storyline which largely takes place outside of the capital.
That storyline is enjoyable though and we are introduced to another set of very interesting characters as Thomas delves into a terrorist plot. Once again he demonstrates that some of the problems that are besetting the modern world are actually nothing new except perhaps in scale and effect.
If things do carry on this way poor Llewellyn is going to have one of the most bruised and battered bodies in fiction. The book starts and ends with him in dire straits and he takes quite a battering in between.
I don't think this series will be everyone's cup of tea but I think if you liked the first book this one should also please and I'm going to enjoy sipping from it occasionally as it unfolds further.

I like the narrator but I felt he struggled somewhat with the Irish accent, which I found a little annoying (may just be me).
Story is fine, nothing fantastical but a good enough plot and you care about the two main characters.
So overall I'd rate OK and would listen to another in the series.
