Death is for the dying

This book is a very interesting read and one I could not put down. The story was super fast paced and kept me engaged throughout. There was enough back story that I got a strong sense of who John was, where he had been and how he got to where he was.

Ok

I found this a bit predictable, I'd worked out half way through who had done it, and how, although the why didnt become clear straight away.

I'd listen to the other books in the series, but only if i had nothing else in my library to listen too
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review
