Ten years ago, journalist Ben Webster had his investigation into a corrupt Russian business in Kazakhstan crushed, the cost of his scrutiny resulting in a terrible tragedy....
Now employed by a private London intelligence agency, Webster's interest is piqued when a client asks him to expose the dealings of shadowy Russian oligarch Konstantin Malin.

Against a background of Moscow, London, and Berlin a journey of impossible decisions begins....

Russian mob... A British business man.. Death and intrigue.. With a great narrator.. What's not to like
The narration by Jonathan Keeble was as ever excellent; but the plot was a little laboured and predictable. It is a genre that I really enjoy, but didn't really add anything new. That said, I listened all the way through.
I quite enjoyed this, although comparing the author to John le Carre is somewhat over-enthusiastic. I felt it was over-long, but it was reasonably suspenseful.
