This is a very interesting book. Wasn't sure initially, just needed something to listen to on the train journey to London... well, this is the best bo..Show More »ok I have ever listened to. Very well narrated, fast moving, couldn't put it down. Try it if you like a bit of real life crime story. Don't be put off by only two reviews...
This story was fast moving and edge of the seat stuff, I did enjoy it mainly .... but - some of the violence was really heavy and I didn't really like..Show More » the political theme.

I've been waiting a while for this and this is another very good book in the series.

Hopefully the next instalment will be out soon.....
I really love the characters in this series, The story is excellent and I like the fact that the main characters are not nasty or spiteful, they have ..Show More »genuine friendships - which is really more like life, I get fed up with all the backstabbing obnoxious behaviour in some current novels. This doesn't get in the way of a good story, and a tense drama. I am not thrilled by the bad language - but even that is mainly used by the roughest characters so is tolerable. To have the story told by the journalist looking for a scoop is an interesting angle.
I have enjoyed all of this series and look forward to the next in line.
My only quibble is that some of the accents - (the Irish one particularly), are VERY odd!
I just love this series - Rosie is such a 'nice' lady - she cares about people, I like the relationships she has and her persistence.
The sto..Show More »ry is excellent, these novels are written from the point of view of the journalist rather than the police - I really enjoy them .......... However - as I had said on previous reviews of this series - the F*** word is overused - I know that the setting is with people of the criminal persuasion - but it is just tooooooo much.
