Any additional comments?
This is a real English spy novel , set in modern day but keeping with all the traditons of what you expect of a good spy story.
In the start you have no idea who is involved with what, but the plot slowly gets unravelled it all makes more and more sense.
I found the story very intriguing, and exciting, and you never realy know what's going to happen next. I found myself rooting and hoping that several characters would not get killed off.
There is posted a warning (on Audible) that it contains some graphic violence and sex, i did not find this over extreem or misplaced in this story.
The very propper english narration from Philip G. Henley suited the story perfectly.
I recieved this audiobook in return for an unbiased review.
