Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Among Thieves by John Clarkson, read by John Chancer.

Unfairly imprisoned by the State of New York, ex-con James Beck is a man with a keen sense of right and wrong. But when a friend's niece turns to him for help, he soon discovers that the men at whose hands she's suffered are more dangerous than he could possibly have imagined.

In order to prevail, he and his gang of friends will have to outwit, outflank and outfight a formidable array of opponents, the likes of which they've never before encountered. Or die trying...

Jack Reacher just been overtaken

Brilliant from first chapter. Action throughout with some twists in the way . The audio performance hit the spot throughout.
Left wanting to read what else is in the pipeline for these characters.

Allternative view

I'm surprised at the high ratings given in reviews. I thought it was dismal. not much of a story line and what there was didn't grab me as being convincing. Lots of padded out narrative to keep you bored. Graphically described violence as a cheap substitute for intelligent dialogue. Some dreadful narration for most of the subsidiary characters. And why do three of the characters all have a name beginning with the letter M, a worthwhile editor wouldn't have sanctioned that surely. Just a low skilled effort all round. Sorry!
