Every thriller promises edge of seat tension but very few actually deliver. The Abrupt Physics of Dying does! If this does not ge..Show More »t your heart beating on overtime then nothing will! Gritty, gripping and heart stoppingly tense until conclusion I was nothing short of mesmerised. Set in Yemen and with a wonderful sense of place this is a hugely timely novel which deserves to attract even non-thriller fans. With some thoroughly thought-provoking moments I was blown away. Highly recommended.
I was expecting violence to feature throughout this book and although it is present it was not gratuitous at all. The action is all implicit to the storyline and never overplayed. With a wonderful narrator and an incredibly considered retelling of events this makes for an incredible listening experience.
