1st listen, great choice
Narrator was great
Great historic / fiction rample through a interesting part of modern times
Good listen, but abrupt ending..
I liked the story and the way the author & narrator brought us through the journey of early eighties London life from (mostly), the viewpoint of the working class and police. I enjoyed the flow and storyline but really, the end came so fast and ended so abruptly that I actually checked for a missing part. I had to listen again to the last fifteen minutes to make sure I had the ending, and on a second listening the author had completed what had been set out. It just seemed to me that when they got to the last chapter, it was hurried. A good story though, and well done in the telling. I would recommend it for the 1980's scene and historical events of that time.
