Another excellent police thriller!!
I don't know. I read one of this writer's books and listened to "The Death of a Mafia Don". Enjoyed both very much.
The main character because he wasn't 'over the top'. He reacted like a real person. Being that the author was a policeman he also has a good knowledge of police procedure. I live in Italy and have taught English at the Police Headquarters so I have an idea of what is accurate. I have also lived here for 35 years.
Everything! He's about as good as it gets and he never shouts and whispers as some narrators do making listening very difficult while driving the car.
Yes, will be looking out for more of the same author.
