Damien Boyd does not disappoint

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

Exciting. Believable characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kickback?

Hard to pick one, but the ending was gripping.

What about Napoleon Ryan’s performance did you like?

He is a bit ponderous to start with but as the story picks up pace, so does his reading. It is clear and, in being fairly dispassionate, somehow adds to the excitement.

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

In a sense, yes, but actually didn't want it to be over too quickly either.

Any additional comments?

We listened to it on a long journey in the car - really good for that because although it has its twists and turns, it is not complicated or esoteric.
