This audiobook has two things going for it.
Ian Rankin wrote it. The blurb here on Audible doesn't tell you it was written in the '80s, but Rankin does, in a forward to this edition. I think I've read nearly all of Rankin's novels, and enjoyed them all, this one no less.
John Lee read it. He has to be one of my favorite readers. He really brings Rankin's dialog to life, and seems to effortlessly navigate all the myriad dialects of English. His accents are always subtle; he never falls into the trap of allowing an accent to overpower the dialog. Lee is an artist.
If you've read any of my reviews, you know I like spy novels. In my estimation, a bad spy novel deserves death by firing squad. Luckily, this is one of the better ones.

I really enjoyed the narrator's rendition of this whip-smart spy story. His characterizations and mastery of the Scots and Irish brogues were music to my ears. The protagonist is all too human, and very sympathetic. Although the plot is involved, I was easily able to follow the intricacies. I loved it!
