Mind Blowing

I've read previous Glen Erik Hamiltons Van Shaw books and thoroughly enjoyed them until this one. I got two thirds through the book and gave up. The toing and froing between years and the number of characters involved completely confused me. I will give his next book a try and if similar then I will find another author.

Disappointing

The ONLY redeeming feature if this book is the narrator is good. Nevertheless even he couldn't lift a mediocre (at best) tale that wandered about and was completely unsatisfying to listen to. I didn't listen to it all because I just couldn't bring myself to inflict any more on myself.

Its a winner

Another intriguing puzzle by Glen. I am constantly frustrated by books that contain implausible and jarring dialogue. There wasn't a single sentence that caused me to roll my eyes and that's rare. Jeff Harding is perfect as the narrator. I have seen other reviews where Jeff's style has been criticised but for my money you can't go past him. He never lets his narration distract from the story and he is a master at giving irony some extra flavour with his matter-of-fact delivery. Think Jack Reacher and you'll know that Harding gives thriller/spy stories an extra special touch. Add a leading character that you can relate to and care about and what more could you want?
