Brilliant

I have been totally gripped by this novel, the story was very complicated and held my interest right through. The main character was flawed as they all seem to be in today's crime novels, but he elicited my sympathy rather than my irritation - I liked him.
The story kept me guessing until the end, and I hated putting this audio book down whenever I had to attend to something.
Saul Reichlin is as superb as ever, one of the best narrators on Audible in my opinion.

Seedy Amsterdam, murder, kidnapping, new detective

Always a pleasure to listen to a thriller by Hewson and narrated by Reichlin. The central detective, Inspector Vos, has sunk into depression at the failure to find his kidnapped daughter, Anneliese. However, a new rookie police woman from the sticks, revitalises the enquiry, and the chase is on. Inspector Vos is a thoughtful detective, and could be compared to Morse. Interesting detective duo. Immensely enjoyable story excellently narrated by Reichlin.
