First book I read in the series but I quickly got caught up in the story. Fast paced and intriguing but too many loose ends tied up by a Tarantino type ending.
Not to my taste - I will not be listening to any more in the series.
This is the 4th book in The Arcadian (Alex Hunter series) after reading and listening to the other audiobooks this one did not disappoint, it was a sit on the edge of you seat and enjoy the roller coaster ride. Full of action, suspense and surprises. I love listening to Sean Mangan he had a great style and never disappoints great narraton.

Would you consider the audio edition of Black Mountain to be better than the print version?
Comparing the audio to the print edition is akin to asking someone if they liked the movie or the book. It's all down to the performance, and the reader does a great job, so it's a great audio.
Have you listened to any of Sean Mangan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to other Greig Beck performances by Sean Mangan, and echoing my review title, this is the best yet.
Any additional comments?
I had read several reviews of this book that criticized the plot line where Alex is being pursued by several different agencies as detracting from the main story. I strongly disagree. One of the best parts for me was near the end of the book (I won't give out any spoilers, sorry) where Alex needs to act to save someone, and I found myself yelling "Save [that person], Alex, don't just stand there!!!" Luckily for me, I listen to the book in my car while driving to work so no one heard me making a fool of myself.
The main plot is great as well, would have liked more but then, I would have liked more of the whole book, too. If you have read any of the previous three and liked them, GET THIS BOOK! I can't wait for the next one.
