Disappointing for fans of Herron’s Slough House series

I’m an avid fan of the excellent Slough House series and while waiting for the next volume to be released thought I’d try these other titles. This book was a disappointment. It’s very slow, particularly at the beginning - it’s repetitive and the narrator is nothing like the excellent standard of the series. The story isn’t that strong, the characters don’t have the same interest, and overall it’s a much poorer quality. If this was my first book from this author I wouldn’t have gone on to read the series - which would have been a great loss. Skip this - stick with the Slough House/Slow Horses series.

Not in the same league as the Slow Horses series

Very disappointed sadly by this book - at first I thought I was just missing the usual narrator but this was sluggish and though it had moments where it looked like it was taking off it never really did. Not sure if it might have been better to read than listen to but the writing didn’t come across as strong as his usual work.

Nice but not Slough House

Enjoyed the book, good story, well written. Narration, in any other world would have been very good, however, it is hard not to yearn for Sean Barrett but that is just my guilty pleasure....was very well read
