Publisher's Summary

The first in a naval series from debut author J. S. Law.
When a man commits suicide on a submarine, Lieutenant Danielle Lewis is sent to investigate; she couldn't be more out of place.
Suicide must be investigated. Especially when a Royal Navy sailor kills himself on a nuclear submarine only days after his wife's brutal murder. Now Lieutenant Danielle Lewis, the navy's finest special branch investigator, must interrogate the tight-knit, male crew of HMS Tenacity to determine if there's a link. Isolated, and standing alone in the face of extreme hostility, Dan soon realises that she may have to choose between the truth and her own survival.
Justice must be served, but with a possible killer onboard the pressure is rising, and her time is running out....

Uncomfortable, gripping and constantly tense.

Where does Tenacity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's right up there. Certainly in my top 3.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The protagonist Lt 'Dan' Lewis is really the only character you can 'like', but in terms of characterisation, I love the way the author wrote the more pernicious characters. Two stood out, but without spoilers, it's difficult to elaborate. They're so well written you feel like taking a swing for them yourself every time they arrive on scene.

What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Lisa Coleman was perfect for Dan Lewis. Just the right balance of vulnerability and kick-ass. She did struggle a little with the few regional accents in the book, particularly Geordie, but it wasn't distracting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

'Moved' me? If claustrophobia and fear count - absolutely. Again, without spoilers, I'll just say that there are 2 particular chapters which will stay with me. The action described in each covers only a few minutes, but the prose was so dense and intimate and very chilling.

Any additional comments?

I wish the book had been longer - which is always a good sign. The book finishes with much unresolved and whilst I picked out the baddies reasonably early, the reveals were still shocking and unexpected. That's almost always the way with crime thrillers: there are only so many characters from which to choose the perpetrators. For me though, it was the density of the story and the prose rather than the scale of the plot that were the biggest revelation and I can't wait for book 2.

Unusual setting for claustrophobic crime novel.

This well written novel features an intriguing protagonist and an exceptionally unusual setting. I can see this becoming a TV series for sure.
