Their target? One of the world’s biggest drug dealers: Den Donovan, alias "Tango One".

Good book no wonder they're making a movie

Where does Tango One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Up there

Any additional comments?

Gripping Leather is so good at taking you along at a fast pace through several channels at a time with very believable characters

Compulsive listening

Stephen Leather at his best. Three would-be police recruits, instead of going off on their first day of training at Hendon college, are persuaded to live a different life and act as undercover agents to pin down a wanted drug dealer, otherwise known as Tango One. Although the story may be far-fetched, it's compelling and so compulsive that I couldn't switch off for the last two and a half hours as I had to know how it ended! The narrator really helped it along and handled the various accents professionally.Great entertainment!

Tango One

I found it took a while to get into this book but when I did I was worth the purchase. A strong story a bit slow at times but very enjoyable

Interesting but predictable ending

Would you listen to Tango One again? Why?

Yes as I think it's been left open for a second book to follow

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tango One?

The main character having people
Killed

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really

Any additional comments?

Kept my interest throughout but I was really disappointed with the ending.
The narrator is ok but his interpretation of the main characters voice becomes a little annoying after a period of time.

Great story with a different twist. Another book I didn't want to end. Love the characters and the reader gave them personalities. Could really see a second book at least in this series.....
