Really enjoyed this book. Lee and his brother have collaborated to write a great story and Reacher fans will not be disappointed. Looking forward to the next one.

Brilliant as usual!

Another amazing thriller with plenty of twists and turns. Have read the full series twice! Best read in order with this one last.

Brilliant and informative

From the first few minutes I was hooked on this book and enjoyed every sentence. It made me research Elizabeth Holmes and watch the documentary too. Even if you have seen the documentary you must read this book because it fills in so much more detail. The narrator was fantastic too.

Good story but too long.

Stephen Leather is a great story teller and this was a great story with all the elements coming together at the end but it was too long. Too much political detail which became boring at times. Paul Thorniley is good at all the different accents but he has a strange way of narrating which you have to put up with unfortunately. Still I would recommend this book.

Slow and tedious but well read

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found the book very disjointed and often tedious.Normally I look forward to turning on the book when I jump in my car but this book brought me no joy. it is slow paced and many of the names sound the same so it can be quite confusing,

Would you ever listen to anything by Jon Michelet again?

Perhaps - if only to see if he can write anything different.

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

he is always a brilliant reader and is the reason why I chose the book in the first place.

Was The Frozen Woman worth the listening time?

Probably not. I nearly stopped listening on a number of occasions.

Any additional comments?

Not a book I would recommend. It may be better in print where you can turn back to check the characters and who they are.

Another brilliant book by a brilliant author

Jo Nesbitt has written some brilliant books but this is brilliant brilliant! The story is so intriguing and when you think it is all over there's another three hours to go. Fantastic! If you haven't fallen in love with Harry by now (I named my dog Harry Hole!) then you will now and the ending had me shouting out in my car "no, no, no!" A must read. We

Great story with really well developed characters. It keeps you guessing as to how it could possibly end.

Wonderful story full of history and so well told. An excellent author but prefer Lee Harding to read. Really good.
