Outstanding narration

On the Edge is a good yarn - made into a real page-turner (to use old language) by The Art of Sean Barrett. What an amazing reader. With his seemingly nonchalant narrative presentation providing the firm ground, he peoples his story with very clear and present characters. Even the incidental figures comes to life.
Sean does this with such ease and subtlety that one doesn't even notice that the characters are 3D and in colour. And he know just when to up the tension of the narrative. Truly, he is a master-reader. The Predator preceded On the Edge, and See No Evil is going to follow it.

a good thriller and very well narrated

Michael Ridpath writes competent rather than great thrillers. His plots are reasonably well put together, usually with a financial markets dimension, and his characters are varied and plausible. But I dont think I would go out of the way to buy one of his books to read, as it were - there are better around.

That said, his books do translate very well to audio format particularly if you have a good narrator, and Sean Barratt is definitely worth his money on this one. I certainly enjoyed the book and would warmly recommend it.
