I love this author, Simon Kernick and I especially love Paul Thornley, however, unfortunately the combo didn’t work this time😏 - The story line was OK, but Paul’s main character’s tone just didn’t work for me it simply was to monotoned... Sorry 𗀹

In the boot were six homemade pipe bombs, all linked to detonate at the same time from a single call on a brand-new pay-as-you-go phone found on the target. Special Branch also found Chinese Type 56 assault rifles with eight full magazines of ammunition. His target was a local school. He planned to attack two coaches of teenagers returning home after a school trip to France. Approximately 60 children, their accompanying teachers and their waiting parents. He was going to kill them all.

I have read and reviewed over 100 books by now but never have I listened to a book and heard every word! This book is both amazing and enlightening. I know someone who spent some time in a very small part of the author’s world and can verify the content is very real. I almost don’t want to read/listen to a fictitious book again. Thank you to TC for giving so much to this country, we are all truly grateful. 👍🏼

I have read as I said in my last review many books of a similar storyline, however, I thought the last Grey Man book was amazing but it just got better, on the edge all the way... Mark Greaney tops everything I have read before & Jay Snyder tops Paul Thornly for Narration, can't wait to start my next Grey Man book in the series... 5* just isn't enough!

Time and time again, I listen to stories with Roy Grace the "Old timer" as his mate & fellow detective lovingly refers to him and think this must be the last one! However Peter James somehow comes up trumps producing a best seller every time... This was no exception brilliant, just brilliant and well narrated as always... Come Peter let's get this what must be the final book re "Tooth" and "Casein P" comeuppance!!!!

Generally a good book and I do like his Bangkok books, just seemed, even though only 5 hours a little drawn out for me..

I love Stephen Leather, especially like the "spider shep" stories....

The narration was good, I do love they way he dealt with his own potential serious problem???

This was my first ever Audio Book, ever! I loved it so much as I am writing this (Late Review) I have now gone on to download and listen (Read lol) to well over 200....

I love them, but this one was so good and made even better as MM actually narrates himself!

His ad-libbing, made this so much funnier and of course you wouldn't have got that with the book...

Since the start of my relationship with Audible the app has grown & grown and is now one of the simplest apps to use, can wait until I can purchase my next new book via the app and it will then be complete!

What he doesn't know is that his work as an undercover agent for MI5 is about to intersect with the biggest terrorist operation ever carried out on British soil. Only weeks before, Shepherd witnessed a highly skilled IS sniper escape from a targeted missile strike in Syria. But never in his wildest dreams did he expect to next come across the shooter in a grimy East London flat.
