What a disappointment

I'm an avid Stephen Leather fan and have loved all his books, so I don't know what happened here. The plot is unrealistic and at times tedious, the course of events is predictable. The story is based on a female ex IRA bombmaker being kidnapped and forced to make a massive bomb for no apparent reason. You just know the good guys will come out on top, and the bad guys get their just punishment. The saving grace was the excellent narration by Sean Barrett.
