Excellent read!!!

It's not often you get an amazingly well written book read by an amazing narrator! Excellent from 1st to last word. None of the cliches, no overdone hero moments or tacky one liners...so rare! Just a brilliant bloody story keeping you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, and a narrator who doesn't sound like he's reading sesame street. WOW, WOW, WOW. Thank you🙏

Would you try another book written by David Gilman or narrated by Alistair Petrie?

Already have, they were much better, if I had listened to this one first I wouldn't have purchased more

If you’ve listened to books by David Gilman before, how does this one compare?

Poorly

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

A good reader who did as well as possible with a poor story

Was The Devil's Breath worth the listening time?

No
