A gripping graphic insight into the world of crime

This book is a gripping tale that is enhanced totally by the narrater David Nellist. His wonderful Jordie accent kept us amused and that coupled with the author's humour at times had us laughing out loud. We were totally absorbed for our journey across France and had to park up to hear the end of the story we were so engrossed. A brilliant way to pass the time on boring roads. The story is simple but well thought through with an interesting twist that one does not expect. It is quite a strange thing to find yourself on the side of the baddies and not wanting them to get caught. A book I would recommend to anyone who can understand the Jordie humour and accent not a book for someone trying to learn English!!!
