I have listened to most of the Michael Connolly catalogue specifically the Bosch books but I also thoroughly enjoyed the first mcevoy book. The narrator has changed and now I have been forced to try to listen to the MAN WITH gRAVelist voice evah! Unless you want to listen to someone sounding like the guy who did all of the 90’s action movies trailer narrations, don’t bother. Just too poor to listen to and such a shame. I will keep an ear out for other narrators for this novel but this bloke just sounds like a dope and I can’t put up with it to finish the book

Another well written and suspenseful Slow Horses novel with Sean Barrett doing a superlative performance of Mick Herron’s book.

The story starts with a pretty vanilla story. Troopers on patrol, low quality junior officer clawing their way up the political ladder. some tragedy some victories then a dramatic well written and performed climax. Then someone turns out the lights. Book two goes really dark. Lots of mood and mystery combined with ample servings of explodey goodness. Very well written and masterfully performed. Yay! a new author. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Another cracking effort by Birmingham

Where does Stalin's Hammer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right up there, I feel I have a vested interest in the series

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stalin's Hammer?

The beginning of some chapters are prefaced with the initial interactions of characters close to the time of Transition. A good touch, giving added depth and reasoning behind a characters actions and decisions.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

Fitted the story and characters very well. An excellent selection of actor.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Gracie's reveal.

Any additional comments?

Well composed follow on to the original Axis of Time WW2.1 stories.
