Truly awful.

What would have made Disobey better?

The storyline is OK but takes forever to get anywhere. It is written like a school essay where the writer is trying to reach a minimum number of words. There is so much unnecessary repetition. I have read and really enjoyed all of her other books. On this attempt, it is insulting to Martina Cole, to be compared with her.

What will your next listen be?

Apple Tree Yard

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was ok

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Disobey?

The extremely far fetched scenes of gangsters running around London, brandishing guns, accompanied by police officers. Every story has an element of "far fetched" but this story went way beyond anything close to believable.

Any additional comments?

Such a shame. Other books were great.

Different

I loved the 1st book but this was a little far fetched for me. Full of grit and the pace was good but the story itself was not a patch on the 1st book. I do hate it when they change readers as well, was not so keen on this reader.

not bad

a good gangland thriller with recurring characters from jacqui roses other books. the ending with the police did get a bit silly and far fetched which is why only 3 stars.
