Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Among Thieves by John Clarkson, read by John Chancer.

Unfairly imprisoned by the State of New York, ex-con James Beck is a man with a keen sense of right and wrong. But when a friend's niece turns to him for help, he soon discovers that the men at whose hands she's suffered are more dangerous than he could possibly have imagined.

In order to prevail, he and his gang of friends will have to outwit, outflank and outfight a formidable array of opponents, the likes of which they've never before encountered. Or die trying...

Not a big fan.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was ok, I found some of the objectivity toward the female characters really annoying. In the first few chapters we meet 4 male characters that’s are barely physically described but the female charters is explained in detail as some sort of amazing pin up girl...!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Quite good, story line would be great without some of the ridiculous female descriptions.

Could you see Among Thieves being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

I would not be keen to purchase other books by this author....a bit annoying that he ruins a quite good storyline with his over the top expectations of women’s physical appearance. A story more directed towards a male reader I think!

Jack Reacher just been overtaken

Brilliant from first chapter. Action throughout with some twists in the way . The audio performance hit the spot throughout.
Left wanting to read what else is in the pipeline for these characters.
