A thrilling debut novel

Two o'clock boy is a brilliant debut novel and a promising start to a great new series. The complex, cleverly plotted story, great characters and fast pace make it a very thrilling read. I'm looking forward to the next DI Ray Drake book!
The narration by Mark Meadows works really well for this audiobook.

surprised at how much I enjoyed it

Any additional comments?

I was not expecting much as I had not heard of writer or narrator before, but the narration was excellent and the story drew me in, a few twists along the way and sad when it was finished, -I will definitely be looking for more from both author and narrator
