A strangely compelling narrative. I wondered whether it was for me until I got past the first couple of chapters. Our Hero - who ever he is - is not very deeply drawn but I found myself really liking him and you have to be impressed at how lucky he is!! He is relentlessly pursued and staggers from one impossibly desperate situation to another. It's hard to imagine sometimes that he is going to make it to the end of the book. It would make a good film!

I bought this on the strength of the previous reviews and I wasn't disappointed. A great story - interestingly slow start and a lot of character/scene setting, but once it gets going, it really goes! A real old-fashioned chase/roadtrip/chandleresque thriller. As someone else said, it would make a great movie or tv miniseries!
I thought this was real value for money, and it's prompted me to try GM Ford's other audio books. I'm listening to 'Last Ditch' and enjoying it a lot, too.
I hadn't heard of this writer, but bought this audio on a friend's recommendation. Listened to it on a long car journey and the time flew by. The story moves along at a good pace and the narrator does a great job with the different characters.
