Publisher's Summary

The first in a naval series from debut author J. S. Law.

When a man commits suicide on a submarine, Lieutenant Danielle Lewis is sent to investigate; she couldn't be more out of place.

Suicide must be investigated. Especially when a Royal Navy sailor kills himself on a nuclear submarine only days after his wife's brutal murder. Now Lieutenant Danielle Lewis, the navy's finest special branch investigator, must interrogate the tight-knit, male crew of HMS Tenacity to determine if there's a link. Isolated, and standing alone in the face of extreme hostility, Dan soon realises that she may have to choose between the truth and her own survival.

Justice must be served, but with a possible killer onboard the pressure is rising, and her time is running out....

    Story
    "Uncomfortable, gripping and constantly tense."
    Where does Tenacity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's right up there. Certainly in my top 3.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The protagonist Lt 'Dan' Lewis is really the only character you can 'like', but in terms of characterisation, I love the way the author wrote the more pernicious characters. Two stood out, but without spoilers, it's difficult to elaborate. They're so well written you feel like taking a swing for them yourself every time they arrive on scene.


    What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Lisa Coleman was perfect for Dan Lewis. Just the right balance of vulnerability and kick-ass. She did struggle a little with the few regional accents in the book, particularly Geordie, but it wasn't distracting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    'Moved' me? If claustrophobia and fear count - absolutely. Again, without spoilers, I'll just say that there are 2 particular chapters which will stay with me. The action described in each covers only a few minutes, but the prose was so dense and intimate and very chilling.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the book had been longer - which is always a good sign. The book finishes with much unresolved and whilst I picked out the baddies reasonably early, the reveals were still shocking and unexpected. That's almost always the way with crime thrillers: there are only so many characters from which to choose the perpetrators. For me though, it was the density of the story and the prose rather than the scale of the plot that were the biggest revelation and I can't wait for book 2.

    "Unusual setting for claustrophobic crime novel."

    This well written novel features an intriguing protagonist and an exceptionally unusual setting. I can see this becoming a TV series for sure.

    "Claustrophobic thriller"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this debut novel. The description used in creating the atmosphere on board Tenacity is very clever. It immerses the reader in the claustrophobic environment of a submarine. The story was clever and I went back and forwards trying to guess the protagonists. Can't wait for the next Dan Lewis escapade.

    Story
    "Tenacity needed to finish"

    I really enjoyed this until nearly the end.
    It was unbelievable that Dan, having already been in huge trouble for not going for help in a previous case, that she would behave the same way.
    The conversation with Felicity was a clumsy way of moving the story forward and very dull.
    That said, it was a good listen for 80% of the time.

    Story
    "Edge of your seat thriller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Recommended if you like a well-written, tense mystery/thriller. The first in a naval series from debut author J. S. Law. As he is ex Royal Navy (including submarines) the authenticity shines through. You don’t get much more terrifyingly claustrophobic than on a submarine with a killer out to get you. Ashore wasn’t any safer either. That was the most edge-of-my-seat book I have read in a long time, and I read a lot! I actually yelled "NO" at the last line. I am sure this will rocket up the best-seller charts.


    What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She is the perfect reader for this book, edgy, determined voice, just like the main character!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, in fact I kept reading it way past my bed-time as I didn't want to put it down


    Any additional comments?

    He has two more in the pipeline and I can’t wait for them! As ex WRNS myself I can assure you, this is a brilliant book!
