Narrator pronunciation

Where does The Double Tap rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is pure Stephen Leather


What other book might you compare The Double Tap to, and why?

Similar to The Long Shot which is the first of the two Mike Cramer stories with multiple related strands


Which character – as performed by Martyn Read – was your favourite?

Mike Cramer


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Apart from the thought of listening for 17 hours, yes it was hard to take a break


Any additional comments?

The only irritation to the otherwise skilful narration was Martyn Read's pronunciation of Quantico as Kwanteeeco rather than KWONtico (like Americans) and Miami as Meeami rather than My-ami.
The latter is from a native Indian word and Americans pronounce it My-ami.

Appalling narrator

I am an avid audible fan and have enjoyed several Stephen Leather stories narrated by Paul Thornley. This narration by Martyn Read was so bad I couldn't carry on listening. It was his attempt at an Irish or American accent which really grated - a great shame because it might have been a good story.

If you're looking through the list of Stephen Leather stories don't choose one read by Maryn Read.
