I have been really drawn into this series, but I find that I have to take constant breaks from listening - not because I am bored - but because Jeffrey Archer has so many cliff hangers, and one can see the disasters unfolding. I tend to start feeling uncomfortable as there is so much hatred and spite shown in the stories.
Once again - he has left us hanging on a thread - waiting for the next instalment which will no doubt be in another years time.
To sum up, I have found this to be riveting listening, and the story is gripping with its twists and turns, BUT I find myself getting quite stressed as the story unfolds. Thank god there will only be one more!! (unless there is something I don't know about!)
The first chapter or two had me thinking - Glory, how can there me so many miserable people .... but as soon as the 'backdrop' was done the story took off and it was really compelling, holding my interest and gaining my sympathy. definitely worth a listen, very good and true narration too ( except on one character who seemed to start with an Australian accent then became British sounding! Hey Ho that could have been my misunderstanding)
A worthy use of valuable credits
I found this novel quite gripping and 'HAD' to keep listening - hadn't heard of this author before and chose because of reviews on Amazon. I loved the voice of the narrator.
The characters were well drawn and likeable enough for me to care what happened to them. A most enjoyable listen.
Say something about yourself!
I bought this having bought the first in the series and really enjoyed the story and especially the supernatural elements. It kind of reminds me of Stuart MacBrides Logan McRae although not as vivid. I enjoy the character of Tony and supporting characters. The next book has not been released yet and there are some loose ends not tied up so hopefully they will be cleared I will definitely be getting the next book and would really recommend the series.
I felt the narrator was very clear and did not distract from the story.
