To test the facilities, he's hosting a reunion for his old school friends. He is so busy showing off that he doesn't notice that another group have invited themselves along - a collection of terrorist mercenaries who are occasionally of more danger to themselves than to the public.

Awful awful accents
Would you try another book written by Christopher Brookmyre or narrated by Angus King?
I LOVE Chris Brookmyre's books. The problem with this is entirely with the narration. I'm afraid Mr King's attempt at a Geordie and a Mackem accent were so appallingly bad that I literally had to stop listening as it was killing the enjoyment. I'm not from the North-East btw, it's just that the performance is so jarringly awful on those accents it really becomes impossible to ignore about 2/3rds of the way through when those characters are really at the forefront. I personally blame the director, should never have let a performance that bad be released. He's fine on other accents and I'm sure he's a capable actor but wow, awful performance on those accents.
Would you be willing to try another one of Angus King’s performances?
Any additional comments?
Chris Brookmyre is absolutely wonderful and I have recommended him to loads of friends who are now fans.

Cheered my day.
Came late to this early Chris Brookmyre as the blurb had made me think it wouldn't suit me. Then I was totally riveted and laughing all through. Angus King is overall a great narrator and I forgive his dreadful Sunderland efforts here as his varied native Scottish for the main characters is so much more important.
