Publisher's Summary

The gripping new thriller from the bestselling author of A Death in Sweden.

Max Emerson is rich and powerful: a patron of the arts and the owner of a multinational business. But Max's business is money laundering, and, for the first time in his fortunate life, he's in trouble.

Hackers are targeting his company. The FBI is pressuring him to betray one of his crooked clients. A dark secret from his own past looks in danger of resurfacing. When his parents are killed in a tragic accident, the whole world Max has built for himself seems to be on the brink of collapse.

Just as he's drawn back into the heart of his estranged family, he receives a letter from beyond the grave - a letter that turns everything he thought he knew on its head...

    "Different but good"

    I've read other books by this author and this seemed a departure from his normal action packed thrillers. It takes a good while to get into the story and to find something redeemable or like able about the main character but if you hang in there the plot comes together and you understand the main character and even like and admire him. Interesting perspective and great dialogue. Overall I truly liked this book it was a fresh take and not the norm. Narrator did a great job with the pace and the voices.

    "So-so"

    It may be better simply read. But as an audio, the narrator is so boringly humdrum I couldn't even start to get interested. Had to quit before finishing chapter 4. Too bad.....

    "Please, More Max Emerson"

    This excellent story about the awakening of a complex, often pragmatic financial entrepreneur offers a tinge of mystery while settling old scores. Moreover, the supporting characters offer a lot of potential as does the main character, Max Emerson. Accordingly, I hope Kevin Wignall will let us see more of Max.

    If you want hardcore action from a spy, hard-boiled detective or a Jack-Reacher type, this isn't the right character or story. However, if international settings and clever maneuvering by a poised, bright and sometimes tough guy peaks your interest, A Fragile Thing will deliver. Finally, Scott Merriman delivers an excellent performance as a narrator.
