Summary

Would you break the law to see justice done? In Sheffield, a bankrupt businessman has murdered his family. It seems like an open-and-shut case: A desperate man resorting to desperate measures.

In Middlesbrough, a woman named Angel is heading south. She is a woman alone. A prostitute. Now a murderer. And she has only one thing on her mind: Revenge.

Two crimes, a hundred miles apart, but a terrible secret connects them.

A dark an unforgiving story

If you could sum up Angel of Death in three words, what would they be?

anger, revenge, atonement

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it turned out to be more complex than I first thought.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Carrington’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't, but I enjoyed it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when one of the main characters died.

Gritty, fast paced story of redemption!

Not for the faint hearted, but contrasted by warm relationships as well as the hard edges. A fast paced story that may keep you awake!

A hard-edged, pacy story

This was an enjoyable listening experience. The story is dark and hard-edged, with a fair degree of complexity and moral twists and turns. It kept my interest and was well-narrated.

Not so Sweet Revenge

This is the second Ben Cheetham novel I've listened to, and it's a tighter faster and more consistent novel. The story line is ably supported by Nigel Carrington an excellent narrator. The focus of this novel is Revenge to which the author adds some food for thought with two characters on opposite sides of the argument.
