    "one of his best"

    I loved this. With the fact-based back story of the Mafia I was instantly drawn into the book. The cop is a likeable character without being the cliche 'renegade'. It's dark and twisted but it's fantastic. I think Ellory is a cut above the rest right now.

    "Gritty realism"

    Ellory has done it again - a gritty tale that uses the device of consultations with a psychologist to tell a tale of now and then. The strands of several stories come together satisfyingly, but not for the faint hearted.

    "hooked"

    This is my first RJ Ellory book and it wont be the last. If you can get past the first twenty minutes which are quite graphic then it just gets better from there. The naration by Eric Meyers is one of the best and enhances the enjoyment. There is much swearing in the book and it is not for the faint hearted, but this book is one that is part of the real world worts and all. The main character is complex to say the least but he grows on you. The plot moves in many directions, there is the initial murder in the bath, the serial killer, the inter activity with his new partner, daughter, son, ex wife, shrink, and priest. The relation ship with his father runs strongly through the story. This book has it all.

    "Finished it in 2 days"

    Nice, and at times wanting it to be read faster - gripping stuff. Will look for more by this author and narrator.

    "Nice and gritty but a bit too predictable at times"
    What made the experience of listening to Saints of New York the most enjoyable?

    The gritty "LA Confidential" corrupt cop story worked well with the narrator. However elements seemed familiar from other media. There seemed to be traces of The Sopranos in a few scenes. The most annoying thing was that the "surprise" elements were predictable, and as they were linked to the main protagonist's personality we seemed to be treading water till they were revealed. However the past history storied about his father mixed with present time investigations worked well to keep the reader entertained.


    If you’ve listened to books by R. J Ellory before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first one.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The opening scene was good


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator had a very good range of character voices and the voice of Frank was very apt, having gravitas even though we knew the character had been drinking too much the night before. Somehow this came through in the voice appropriately.

    "Another great read."

    I really enjoyed this novel as I have with all that I have read by him even if he has been writing his own reviews on amazon. Great stories that are gritty and do not pull any punches. It is quite amazing that he is British.

    "Which Clint eastwood do you like"

    If you prefer the old Eastwood, as seen in Million Dollar baby you will hate this book. If on the other hand you think Eastwood was never better than in his Harry Callahan days, this is the book for you. The 'hero' is pretty much a straight carbon copy of Dirty Harry, and the narrator does not want you to forget that, ensuring that everyone sounds like a character from 'Sudden Impact'. I cannot say whether it was the original story or the narrator the annoyed me the most, but together they made for a horrible listen, that will make me stay away from both in the future.

    "Absolutely dreadful"

    I absolutely HATE this book, the main character is obnoxious with no redeeming features, he is rude, selfish and foul mouthed.

    the book has a very high rate of unpleasant language - so much so that I am really struggling to finish it. I am finding it offensive and unnecessarily littered with bad language.

    I cannot understand the - way over the top - reviews, and regret wasting my credit and also my time.!
