Publisher's Summary

The crew of an oceanic research vessel goes missing in the Pacific along with their mini submarine.
An evangelical media star holds a rally next door to a cinematic convention in LA. The cops know there's going to be trouble, but what they didn't foresee was the presence of a Glaswegian photographer with an indecipherable accent and a strong dislike of hypocrisy or of a terrorist who seems to have access to plutonium as well as Semtex.

Excellent story, abysmal Scottish accent

Brookmyre's books are always irreverent, sharply wry and very funny, and this one is no exception. However, as a Scot, the accent put on by the American narrator was so awful as to be an insult - badly pronounced slang, little comprehension of how the slang should sound and no discernible area of Scotland represented - it certainly wasn't Lanarkshire!

Sounds like he's doing a Shrek impression

Any additional comments?

I love Christopher Brookmyre and have enjoyed many of his books on Audible, but the narrator and this text is a complete mis-match. It is really grating whenever he attempts a Scottish accent which as its a Brookmyre book is often. In the end I found it too annoying and didn't finish the book.
