These books are amazing. Nick Stone is deadly, charming, rough, intelligent, stupid, cultured, surprising, and compassionate as he can be. I'm reading the lot, it's an education..
loved the narrator. Story wasn't good as the last 2 but still well worth a listen.
Husband, Father and Southampton season ticket holder and likes the odd glass of red wine and a good book...
Another great book in the Nick Stone story, gripping from beginning to end a real roller coaster of a ride.
Forget female Scandi cops. Give me a red-blooded thriller with a moral core any day.
I wasn't prepared for how good this book was going to be. It is a well written action story that starts off with a high adrenalin sequence, introduces you to a likeable, funny and fallible main character, builds tension by putting the hero at risk and really gets into the detail of tradecraft. After reading it I immediately went and bought the first in the series, and I'm steadily working my way through all of them.
