Publisher's Summary

A late-night gambling session ends in a bet for Richard Gaunt: can he walk to Oxford by lunchtime the next day? Gaunt sets off, and as morning breaks and the dreaming spires near, his evening's winnings look set to double. But when men in a Jeep reverse into him, scooping him off the roadside, Gaunt enters a yet stranger world.
Taken to a country house, he is kept hostage by a man with impeccable manners, Mr Khan. Traumatised by a tour of duty in Iraq, Gaunt's life has collapsed around him. His behaviour drove away his childhood sweetheart and put even debt-collecting jobs beyond his reach. So when the mysterious captor offers Gaunt 10,000 pounds to marry Adeena - a beautiful girl kept in the house against her will - he decides to accept. After initial suspicion, Adeena realises that Gaunt is her only chance, and the pair forge a plan of escape.

Riveting read

I was completely hooked on this one from the first moment. Ex army officer with psychological problems from what he's seen in Aghanistan and Iraq that aren't being properly addressed and how he copes with, amongst other things, losing his fiancee and being kidnapped. I was, however, disappointed at the ending but that's a trivial point - it was a great read!!

Poor story one to avoid.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The direction of the story was revealed far to early.


What was most disappointing about Paul Torday’s story?

You can see where the story is going early on but the hero who is ex Special forces is so thick he can't see it till the 11th hour. So you spend most of the book waiting for the inevitable to happen.


What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

Jonathan Keeble has a great voice and brings the characters to life, just a shame the writing didn't give him more to work with.


Did More Than You Can Say inspire you to do anything?

Yes avoid Paul Torday novels
