Thought Provoking and Clever

I've enjoyed Sam Bourne in the past so was surprised by the different nature of this book. It was a pleasant surprise. It's hard to review without giving too much away but once I started listening to this one, I just couldn't stop. The storyline is very current but Bourne really provides issues for consideration regarding who really controls the politics of the western world. The plot was clever and altough I guessed one part of it, that didn't impact on the ending. I like Maggie Costello so look forward to following her future journey. The narration was superb with an excellent range of character voices that sprang them to life. Don't be put off if you are not into politics as the entire story has the far wider appeal of murder and mystery so beloved by crime and thriller buffs!

keeps you interested

it keps you listening but is a bit predictable and therefore quite forgettable. Some of the plot is far fetched, and not very convincing, and you know it would play well as a film, enough action and intrigue, but didn't make me rush back to continue listening i'm afraid.
