An assassin lurks in the darkness between earth and oblivion - but who are they, and what is their mission?

Entertaining with a twist at the end.....

After reading all of the other books in the Spooks series, I thought I would download this one and try an audiobook.

The story is very entertaining and written in the typical Spooks books style. Not the best of the many books in the Spooks series, but still very enjoyable, with the odd twist here and there and a big surprise at the end that left me looking forward to the next story.

Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth a read, or listen.

Brilliant

As with all the Spook's books I really enjoyed this latest installment of the journeys and Adventures of Tom Ward. These books are not just for children but appeal to adults as well.

Just a little flat

I love the books in general but this one seemed as if it was a little flat. It never really got out of 2nd gear. I found myself listening to sentences that seemed half finished. I hope I was in the minority but I just couldn't get into this one.
