"Impressive... the characters are strong and Venice is a magnificent backdrop for a story of secrets and lies." (Daily Mail on The Abomination)
gripping,exciting and different
This was a fantastic book - totally different and wonderful drawn and developed characters. It also was believable and really gives one pause for thought. I was only sorry when it was over. This is a trilogy and it would be great to read the first volume as well which is not yet on audible. One of my favourite listens this year! Great!
probably not because it is not as good as other similar books in this genre
a bit monotonous
look for other authors
He managed the female voices pretty well
It took me a while to get into the book but it was well worth it in the end.I found the tech details difficult to follow but this did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the book.The torture details were gruesome but believable. All the odd ends came together very well to make a thought provoking climax
Interesting storyline blending recent historic intrigue with very modern issues.
The narrator's voicing of female protagonists was poor, became irritating and ultimately detracted from enjoyment.
As a recently retired "young" pensioner! I now have more time to read and listen to Audio Books as I renovate my house in Spain.
This is a cleverly woven novel of fact and fiction... Or is it fiction?
It's the first of his books I've bought and I will certainly buy more. The main female character was a bit extreme for my tastes and I found myself loosing patience with her at times, but that is my only reservation.
excellent tale, characters and written in a style I find pleasing. Actually felt at odd moments that I could picture the surroundings so well
the only frustration was that this is the second book, the first not available on audible: whose idea was that?
I did not find the female interpretation 'girlie' in fact thought narrator managed the task very well. I guess we all hear differently
a fine story read by a narrator who was good except when he put on a little girls voice for the female characters. sadly he made strong female police officers and U.S. intelligence officers sound like girlish giggling air-heads.
the plot was gripping
the voice he used for female characters - very distracting and seemed to lessen the importance of the strong female leads
Angelina Jolie as kat
would like the narrator to read it without doing 'voices' or maybe combine with a female narrator
