"Ridpath has the read-on factor that sets bestsellers apart." (Guardian)
"Michael Ridpath has all but cornered the market in glossy financial thrillers." (Mail on Sunday)
I have listened to all the other Michael Ridpath books before I came to this one, as based on the synopsis, this was the book in which I was least interested. This must be one of Michael Ridpath's earlier books as I felt it was stretching the imagination to believe that you would willingly keep getting mixed up with the same people who only brought you trouble and heartache and even endangered your life, and that you would happily go into business with them after not having seen them for some years.
Having said that, it is quite an interesting story and allows you to reminisce about the time when the Internet was still new and the dot.com boom was in full swing. However, I must be getting spoilt, listening to the superb narration of the likes of Sean Barrett and Stephen Pacey. The narration of this book is irritating as there is so much emphasis on every single word, and some of the dialogue is spoken in the wrong character's voice. Just not up to usual standard which is a shame as Andrew Wincott has a very pleasant voice - he just hasn't been well directed.
