I makes things disappear. It’s what I do. This time I’m tidying up the loose ends after a casino heist gone bad. The loose ends being a million cash.

A Worthy Award Winner

If you could sum up Ghostman in three words, what would they be?

Different. Compelling. Well-written.


What did you like best about this story?

What I like best is the way the author weaves together the current plot and story-line together with another from the past. Don't let this put you off because this is done SO skilfully that it really does lend a special 'edge' to the overall story and makes the listening something special as it all unwinds. More importantly, it doesn't at all confuse the listener.You'll find both stories compelling in their own rights.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The bank heist that takes place in a sky-scraper. Exciting and believable.


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

Any bank. Anywhere. Anytime


Any additional comments?

This is a novel that's just packed full of baddies! They're all up to no good and there's no room for heroes, at least in the conventional sense. It is an excellent book and a worthy award winner. Roger Hobbs is certainly a name to look out for from now on and the narrator Jake Weber did a pretty good job too.
