Simon Kerning Fan

Enjoyable enough and breaks from the normal Simon Kerning plots a bit. If you are a fan of them you'll enjoy it. If you've not read his stuff before try severed or rentless first they are superior books.

Overly frenetic thriller

I enjoyed the author's book Last Ten Seconds so knew his style would probably be a pacy thriller that takes the listener on a roller-coaster experience. However after a gripping start and intriguing early chapters the present story descends into just too many situations of jeopardy, bodies piling up and lonely parts of the Highlands of Scotland apparently inhabited by Russian gangsters, paedophiles, corrupt policemen, hit men and gun-totting grannies. There's little in the way of character-development and no respite from action. I think the story needed a few quiet interludes to slacken the relentless pace. It's all a bit too macho for my taste, though the narrator does a great job and must have been exhausted by the end!
