I normal like books from this author but that was utterly terrible. what made a bad situation worse was the narrator who sounded like she was reading a children's story??

Very disappointing! Poor!

Not up to the standard and reputation of Stephen Leather. I bought this on that reputation and wish I hadn't! I would like to RETURN this book. Very disappointed!

Entertaining, not engrossing

For 2/3 of the story the plot seemed to be taking a steady amble through the world of film making. Interesting, and at times felt laboured because the plot developed so steadily as the characters were introduced and intertwined. Even as the plot became darker, the tension didn't seem to build.
Then the point of the title became clear! After that I enjoyed trying to work out just what was actually going on. Even though a couple of options were evident, predicting what was happening was difficult.

Not up to the extraordinary, and engrossing, Tango One or The Chinaman, but worth a listen for the plot developments after 2/3 of the story unfolds
