There is something not quite right about this story. All the ingredients are there but it had lost something in the telling. This is not a criticism of Sean Barrett's superb narration; but of the quality of ... what? The language perhaps? A hastiness or laziness in the choice of words? Too many easy cliches? Characters with too little credibility? Something isn't 100%.
And I tell you what's really annoying. Each chapter is preluded with a single line from the chapter you are about to hear. What's that all about? Every time you hear the words used in context they jar with the story. It emphasises a handful of words that then just distract from the reading.
Sorry, this review doesn't help does it? I am not saying, don't buy it, because it's basically fine. I'm just a trifle irritated with the author.
