Publisher's Summary

Time's up. You're Next.
"All he had to do was name the woman he wanted. It was that easy. They would do all the hard work."
Detective Sergeant Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg is investigating the disappearance of 38 different women. Each one was happy and successful until they vanished without a trace.
Desperate to find her missing sister, Lauren Wraxford seeks out Heck's help. Together they enter a seedy underworld of gangsters and organised crime. But when they hear rumours about the so-called 'Nice Guys Club' they hit a brick wall. They're the gang that no one will talk about. Because the Nice Guys can arrange anything you want. Provided you pay the price....
Dark, terrifying and unforgettable. Stalkers will keep fans of Stuart MacBride and Katia Lief looking over their shoulder.

A Cliffhanger to the end...

If you could sum up Stalkers in three words, what would they be?

gripping and twisting storyline


What other book might you compare Stalkers to, and why?

Some of Stephen Leathers Dan Shepherd series


Which character – as performed by Paul Thornley – was your favourite?

All of them... Paul is superb to listen to...


Any additional comments?

I had never heard of Paul Finch (sorry) and only picked this book for the reader (Paul Thornley). But wow! was I hooked right from the beginning. It has some surprising twists and turns, and I loved Heck, who was ruthless, but caring.... funny but serious.... altogether a very complex character, which all adds to the suspense. Well worth downloading, but dont start listening if you have only limited time.... you wont be able to switch it off!

Robotic narration

Would you try another book written by Paul Finch or narrated by Paul Thornley?

The story was really good but it was massively spoiled by the narrator who's speech was stilted and robotic and times. When he was voicing the characters he came to life but telling the story was just awful, he put pauses where there shouldn't have been any. I started getting really distracted by how many times he paused in one sentence. One example
They abandoned, Hecks fiat, in a multi-storey car park, in Cockfosters. It was, on one of the, upper floors...
At times I wanted to scream at him "Just get on with it!!!"
That said I loved the story and when it did flow it was great.
I would listen to another Paul Finch book but I would hesitate if it was narrated by Paul Thornley,


Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Hecks gruff exterior hiding a genuine nice guy


What didn’t you like about Paul Thornley’s performance?

It was like he was reading a book he had never seen before and hesitated after every few words


Was Stalkers worth the listening time?

Definitely. The story was great
