Shouldn't have bothered...
This came as a 'recommended' from Audible as similar to others that I had purchased. I finished it but I won't be getting the rest.
The least enjoyable of the trilogy
This part of the Creepy Hollow story seemed formulaic and predictable. I found myself finishing the story just to find out how it all ended, not because I was enjoying it.
Good story, but
I didn't particularly like the narrator's voice but the characters were realistic and storyline was engaging.
Great historical fiction
I loved the historical accuracy in this book. It's obviously a work of fiction, with the main characters fictional, but the accuracy of the geography and the historical characters is interesting and educational.
it's also great when you get off the tube at Moorgete and walk past the Guild House on your way to Gresham Street just as you listen to that part of the story!

It ended too soon!
A great listen, right up there with Game of Thrones. I hope there's another instalment of Dunc and Egg, I just want Mr. Martin to finish the Game of Thrones series first!
A bit of an epic
A rip roaring tale of terrorism and special ops, predictable and pedestrian in places, but a good plot and worth a read of you like the genre.
Good book, excellently read
Despite the odd character names (perhaps I move in the wrong circles) the storyline had enough plot twists to keep the listener entertained for the duration of the story.
I was a bit bemused on the number of 'parts' the book was split into, as far as I could tell the chapters were more than a suitable method of dividing up the sections of the story, but the various parts did not detract from the story, so I am not complaining.
Robert Glennister performs the story very well with intonation, accents and characterisation perfect throughout.
I enjoyed the story and performance so much I have bought the second book within five minutes of finishing the first.
Excellent story telling
I thought this was a great story told by a master storyteller. I approached the book with trepidation, unsure if such a long story was going to become a chore to get through; it was not, in fact the story simmered along at a good pace with plenty of action and a well thought out plot. I cannot wait to start the next book in the series.
Jack Reacher books are great, I have read them all so I thought I'd get them to listen to when I'm driving. I could not finish it, the narration was awful, terrible accents, terrible voices and odd inflections. The narrator is English and one of the characters, a women dressed like a cowboy, supposedly sounded like an English country lady.
