I tend to go for authors I know, but thanks to Audible's recent offer of reduced price thrillers and crime novels I tried this author whose work is new to me. I'll certainly be looking out for more by Quintin Jardine as I've just enjoyed 9 hours of an engrossing roller-coaster of a story with lots of twists and turns worthy of Robert Goddard at his best. Mr Jardine's style of writing suits being an audio recording as there's lots of dialogue. He has been well-served by Hilary Neville who narrates the story with verve, pronouncing the Scottish words as a native and, to my ears, convincingly got her tongue around a plethora of Spanish words and place-names. Most of the action takes place in Spain and I could feel the atmosphere of the country as I listened. Though a crime/thriller the author also spikes his lively-style of writing with flashes of humour. Thoroughly recommended.
