Publisher's Summary

"The woman's cries floated down the passage and bubbled out through the front door in helpless, anguished, tortured spasms. It was a sound that echoed down the ages. The horror of mothers from any species that might ever have lived on the planet. A parent trying to deal with the impossible: the death of her young ones. It was a sound to chill the blood." 
A notorious killer escapes from prison. Heart-rending scenes show the kinds of trauma faced by victims of crime. The thrilling action takes place against a tapestry of courage and heroism in daily clashes between the forces of law and order on the one hand and brutal crime on the other.

Most Helpful

Heart-warmingly exciting thriller

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely. It is thrilling all the way with such lovely human (and canine) dimensions that kept me glued to the earphones.

What other book might you compare Death Dealing to, and why?

Anything from Stieg Larsson or Lee Child or James Patterson or... you name them... the top thriller writers. This is right up there with all of them.

Which character – as performed by Ian Patrick – was your favourite?

I like the hero Jeremy Ryder. Just like Jack Reacher. Is it coincidence that they have the same initials? Maybe. But then there's also John Rebus, I suppose. And Jack Ryan. And... ha! now I can think of quite a few JR's.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Canine Force in the fight against crime

Any additional comments?

I really liked the balance of human drama and crime-busting.

What a nice surprise

Would you consider the audio edition of Death Dealing to be better than the print version?

Don't know. Haven't read it. Just listened to it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Death Dealing?

The final chapter is breath-taking. It has incredible action but breathtakingly good moments of emotion, too.

Which character – as performed by Ian Patrick – was your favourite?

I liked Mavis, I have to say. But Ryder is as good as Jack Reacher, in my view. More interesting, in fact, because he has a personal life on display (instead of us just hearing about it), in his interactions with family and colleagues.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Man and dog against crime.

Any additional comments?

Makes me think of my own beautiful dog, who happens to be a border collie.
