You need to give this a bit of time to warm up but it is worth it. A good pace and development and a satisfying end. The story develops nicely through the background of one detective, and some rather dodgy members of the church.
As a devotee of other narrators of Stephen's books, I read this with some scepticism but should not have worried. The story is from a feminine perspective so made sense to have a woman's voice. Good pace story, moves along well (as one would expect) and a great end. I love his books and was not disappointed!
I have avidly followed Stephen Leather and his Jack Nightingale character so wondered if I would be as enthusiastic about this book. I should not have worried, a good plot, some great accents and great pace to keep me wanting more. The world of the oligarch is something I will never be near to but this is an insight into that world, even taking into account this is fiction. I think the narrative is so important when listening to these audio books, the wrong voice can really put me off but Paul is great. He does not seem to have a problem with whatever is thrown at him.
