Critic reviews

"A zip line ride of a thriller, plummeting through the back alleys of Seattle...Hamilton has crafted a compelling new hero in Van Shaw." (Gregg Hurwitz)

Super listening enjoyment.

Quite tense throughout.
Main character extremely likeable & perhaps we'll hear more of him, I hope so.
Usually eschew anything that goes from present to past tense & back but this was skilfully done & fleshed out the characters.
A great story, would definitely recommend a listen/read.

Jeff harding can do no wrong!

I love the Jack Reacher books also narrated by Jeff harding and so this book has a very similar feel. It's a great romp of a mystery thriller and I would read another in the series

Hey guys! I've found Jack!

Jeff Harding is Jack Reacher... The improved version. Not the serial killer but one with some morals. I could listen to Jeff read anything and find it essential not to miss a word. Jeff you're the best!

Jeff Harding - top narrator

Jeff Harding has such a distinctive style that it's hard to forget he's not reading Jack Reacher. I hung in and just kept listening and it was worth it. Good story that moved along nicely.

Great listening

I really enjoyed this one. Who doesn't love a flawed hero.
Good characters, who I wanted to get their just rewards.
