Stephen Leather at his best. Three would-be police recruits, instead of going off on their first day of training at Hendon college, are persuaded to live a different life and act as undercover agents to pin down a wanted drug dealer, otherwise known as Tango One. Although the story may be far-fetched, it's compelling and so compulsive that I couldn't switch off for the last two and a half hours as I had to know how it ended! The narrator really helped it along and handled the various accents professionally.Great entertainment!
Narrator Paul Thornley is brilliant as usual in his reading of this audiobook by Stephen Leather.
He reads with such skill as he distinguishes between the characters, several of whom have cockney accents, plus other characters including Russian, Asian and Northern, all of whom are realistic and spontaneous.
This is a continuation of the saga of Dan 'Spider' Sheppherd as he infiltrates a gang of robbers holed up in Thailand, with a parallel plot about the preparation of a terrorist event in the UK.
Maybe there's a bit too much description about weapons which would have become tedious without the lively narration, but it's an entertaining and exciting storyline. Give it a go!
An unusual storyline, supernatural but down to earth due to the brilliant narration of Paul Thornley.
Jack Nightingale's birthday is approaching, but he receives the unwelcome news that his soul has been traded and will be given up when he reaches his 33rd birthday. Various people repeat 'You're going to hell Jack Nightingale' and he has a race against time to find out what it's all about and save himself. Very different, looking forward to the next book.
