Bit of a shock to the system after the first book is narrated very well by a man. Don't get me wrong she is brilliant too, but took a little while to get used to the different pronunciations of familiar names - jarred a litte for a while.
Didn't spoil another excellent book, and to be honest I would happily listen to either narrator again.

Why change the narrator in a series? First book was ok and I hoped this would be better but no such luck! I can't understand the 5 star reviews, if you're looking for a book about the CIA 'The Company' by Robert Littell is a much better choice.

l loved the story with its strands of plot around different characters. There was plenty of suspense as l felt there was no guarantee that the "good guys" would win nor all of their characters survive.
Far more realistic and credible than many books in its genre and highly recommended with ONE EXCEPTION.
I found the narratir's attempt to change her voice to represent different characters not just bad but appalling. For the early stages of the book l found it a big turnoff which made me angry as in "how the hell did she get this job?"
But the compelling storyline kept me there and while her character portrayal never improved l generally became desensitized to it.

It would have been five stars all round; but the recipes became one of the most annoying parts of a book that I have ever experienced, so much so that I had to knock of a star for each category.
