Ian isn't crazy. Life would be a lot simpler if he was. He's eighteen, on the run, and scared - the shape-shifting delusions he's had since childhood have turned out to be real. He's the result of a dynamic mimicry project intended to help undercover agents "go grey" and blend in unnoticed. Now the biotech company wants its property back, and the only people he can trust are two private military contractors sent to find him...

What did you like most about Going Grey?

Good story line

What did you like best about this story?

Banter between characters - and being able to listen to their internal thoughts

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

Perfect choice in this instance adding good inflection and interpretation adding to the appreciation of the story

Any additional comments?

Editing spoilt this book for me - 1 or 2 slips I can handle but this book had many double takes - the corrections had been made but the incorrect sections had not been removed
