Having listened to all the previous books in this series I had to find out what was happening to the Barrington and Clifton families. As with the previous books the author is adept at story-telling that keeps one listening. Lots of cliff-hanging moments as the forces of good and evil are pitted against one another. The baddies are really bad and the goodies improbable, old-fashioned examples of the British fair play and honour in the tradition of John Buchan novels. The characters are at times exaggerated stereotypes; the writing full of clichés, lots of famous name-dropping; and allusions to expensive brands, and yet it is all highly entertaining. Archer's inside knowledge of life in a an open prison was usefully employed!
Alex Jennings magnificent ability to conjure up accents and have a range of voices such that that he is convincing as a 10 year old American girl, an 84 year old baroness, Russian spies etc, etc., certainly added to my enjoyment of this engaging piece of escapism.

Wonderful, entertaining fast moving story. Typical Archer, still at his best. I hope he continues writing.

Alex Jennings narration was superb, I throughly enjoyed the time I spent listening to him.
Good close out to the series. Really enjoyed this series. Wonder what is next for Jeffrey Archer.
