Publisher's Summary

London lawyer Jack West has a great job and is married with a beautiful daughter; but his personal life isn't great, and it's about to get a whole lot worse. When a beautiful woman, who calls herself Amber, takes a keen interest in Jack over lunch in his local wine bar, Jack does his best to resist her advances. But when she pleads with him to walk her home after two sinister looking men enter the bar, he agrees. This was Jack's first mistake. His second is entering her apartment.

Ten minutes later, Jack feels himself slipping out of control, but a heavy pounding on Amber's apartment door brings him back to his senses. Five seconds later Amber has been shot and is dying in Jack's arms, assassinated by the men from the bar, now trying to enter her apartment. Amber's last words to Jack are; "Run! Take my bag and run!"

With only seconds to think, Jack grabs Amber's bag and flees for the fire escape, dodging a hail of bullets in the process. He is chased across London by the two men, but who are the crazed assassins and what do they want? With only the contents of Amber's handbag in his possession, Jack sets about trying to piece together the mystery. Trying to keep the entire incident secret from his wife, he calls Laila, a Moroccan contact from Amber's diary and arranges to meet her. They soon discover that the men hunting Jack are Russians. But what are they after? And can Jack solve the unfolding mystery before he's implicated in Amber's murder?

Things go from bad to worse for Jack and Laila, and the only clue they have leads them over to Casablanca, in Morocco, but what they discover there only deepens the conspiracy surrounding Amber's death and her link with the Russian assassins. With the Russian President flying over to the UK for a prisoner swap, and an international crisis brewing, Jack and Laila return to the UK to try and solve the mystery, only to find themselves in a race against time to prevent total global disaster in this fast paced adventure thriller.

Red Mist is a fast-paced spy novel with plenty of action, adventure, mystery and terrorist plots

    Story
    "So, Jack, are you married?"

    Jack West is a partner in a small law firm,'East West Law'. Since the birth of his child several years before, his marital problems have been increasing. So when he is approached by a gorgeous woman named Amber, he finds himself returning with her to an hotel room - and his troubles really start there. Troubles far more life threatening than the possibility of his home life disruption.

    This is a fast paced thriller based in and around London as Jack tries to survive whilst trying simultaneously to find out by whom, and why, his life is being threatened. It is a good, almost classical (think The Twenty Nine Steps) action mystery, told in shortish, sentences written in the present tense which give it both an urgency and a feel of news reported immediacy. Quite well presented, there are some descriptive passages spoilt by over repitition of key words, such as wall, vine, gaps etc. The narration by David Loving follows the text urgency with a brisk reading, again emphasising the near news-like quality of the story, maintaing the almost deadpan, unemotional writing despite the man protagonist's fears and confusions. His voicings of the characters is differentiated and clear. The combination of story and reading give this book a distinctively visual, film like quality, different from many action adventure stories.

    I was fortunate in being gifted a complementary copy of Red Mist, at my request, by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you - I enjoyed it immensely. I did find it slightly strange that, given the book was set in England with the main protagonist himself living in the English countryside, the narrator was not English. Having said that, however, Mr.Loving's performance fitted well. The ending, too, was nicely done and not trite in the expected way.
    A nice mystery spy action thriller for anyone who enjoys books in this genre.

    "Great spy novel"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was a fast-paced, spy novel that was pretty entertaining. It was a bit... off... that it was set in London, with characters who are English, but the narrator doesn't do a British accent. I think this would have been better if the narrator could do better accents that fit the story/setting.

    "A fun, enjoyable, fast paced spy thriller!"

    First off, I know that some reviewers are complaining about David Loving's narration because this book is based in London and Morocco, and the main character is British. The narrator didn't read this with a British accent. It personally didn't bother me in the least, but to those of you that would be bothered by this, then you may not want to get this book. I'd recommend listening to the audio preview while keeping this in mind to decide whether this will bother you or not.

    Red Mist was a fun, fast paced spy thriller that kept me listening for most of the day until it was finished. The main character Jack gets caught up in a plot to kill the Russian president because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He and his new acquaintance Laila, whom Amber, the girl who just died in his arms, told him to go find, go on a wild adventure to figure out what exactly is going on and clear his name in Amber's murder. In the process, they end up getting caught up in a wild assassination plot. Sounds crazy, but is kind of like a Bond story on a much smaller scale w/o the handsome spy (Bond) who gets all the ladies. Anyways, It's worth a listen if you like these type of books!

    "Entertaining"

    This story is not a new premise but still quite entertaining. I felt like I was listening to an action movie soundtrack. The narrator was good but seeing as how the story is London based, a British accent would have added some authenticity.

    "Great story, not so great narration"

    Red Mist is a great, fast paced spy novel full of action, mystery and adventure. However, the narration is not so great. I enjoyed the story but, I had a hard time getting through it because the narration is just....not right. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    "So awful was the narration, that I had to abandon the book after Chapter 1"

    Whoever thought that using a wheezing old man with a Southern drawl was a good idea might want to re-think their career.

    In fact, so dreadfully awful was the narration, that I had to abandon the book after Chapter 1. People from the USA don't say "pavement" , they say sidewalk.. they don't say "diary", they use the word "calendar".

    Was this George Bush ? At one point I thought it was.

    Awful Awful awful.

    "Jack is an Everyday Man Thwarting Disaster💣"


    Jack West is a lawyer from London. He is successful, with a wife and daughter. His wife suffers from depression which leads him to speak/go home with a woman named Amber. He suspects that Amber is a hooker, but in his current mood – that doesn't seem to matter.

    A few minutes later, Amber is in her last moments, having been shot. She orders him to take her bag, whispers a warning and directive to him to, "....find La..." Amber dies before finishing. Not knowing what to do, Jack grabs the bag and makes a run for it before Amber' killers find hm. Jack is on a mission now and will be the lead suspect in Amber's murder (when her body is discovered.)

    Please read the Publisher's Summary it is detailed and anymore I add will only leave less for you to discover. This is the BEST 'page turning' terrorism/thriller that I have read recently (excluding Vince Flynn, of course.)

    David Loving is a strong narrator. I am a bit perplexed that the author/publisher did not choose to use a performer with a British accent.

    *I received this book in exchange for my unbiased opinion. This is THE BEST book that I have listened to in a very long time. I'm going to look for more of Simon Rosser's work. It is THAT good. Creditworthy? ABSOLUTELY!

    Since this was set in Britain, it would have been nice to have British narration of the characters. Story line was a little disjointed, but I enjoyed.
