Publisher's Summary

Gavin is creating a unique 'holiday experience’ - every facility any tourist who hates going abroad will ever want will all be available on a converted North Sea oil rig.

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.

    "A fantastic book - let down by Ausible"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story, well engineered, keeps you
    reading


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Has to be Ally, although Mtt and Simone + Vale are worthy of a mention


    Have you listened to any of Angus King’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    He reads well. Its not the voice that I thought of when I read the books, but he adds to my pleasure - an alternative view

    Laugh


    Any additional comments?

    Audible have lost the last section of the book - pathetic!

    "great story, just a little bit dated now perhaps?"

    loved this when it was released and its still a cracking read but i just find some of the tech references at focussed on and subsequently date it badly, perhaps an updated version could be considered?

    "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?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Chris Brookmyre is absolutely wonderful and I have recommended him to loads of friends who are now fans.
