Another brilliant novel

Absolutely love the two Peter’s work, hands down one of my favourite authors and narrators. This story is gritty, thrilling, devastatingly real and yet very compassionate. The pace, characters and Asian underworld made for addictive listening. You just get totally immersed into each of the many exotic locations and some very frightening situations, it’s like you are there with them, heart racing to boot! The accents as always brought each and every player into life. Thanks a million, please keep them coming!

Different yet enjoyable

Not a book I would normally listen to however I am glad that I made the choice. Author had a beautiful and clear voice (which can make or break a book). Storyline kept me interested and it was written in such a way that I could picture the environment in my mind. Ending was satisfying. The book was enjoyable enough that I would read more of Peter May's novels.

Compelling

I am old enough to remember this period of history but the book brings the horror to life through the eyes of the people concerned.
I could not stop listening. It is a roller-coaster ride of emotions. I thoroughly recommend it for plot and performance

Top3

This is no easy task but is in my top3 PM books. I had concerns around the length of the book thinking it maybe drawn out but it starts on full throttle & your in....One book that could come with a money back sticker.
You won’t be disappointed.. Enjoy

What’s new

A great and thought provoking read. Do we never learn?
Refugees in their thousands , exactly what is happening today.
Wealthy, ugly, malicious and corrupt people whose god is money.
Frightened women and men with sad, fearful children all who have to flee their country because of war. People looking for peace , acceptance and a new life. Such atrocities still happening today.
Do we never learn? As Jack thought love is better than hatred.

My forth Audible Book in under a month.

An avid reader & new to Audible books, I found this author a great story teller . Surprised that I've not come across Peter May before, as prier to my detreating sight I read at least on or two novels each week; although mostly far cheaper paperbacks!

struggled with this.

I read A Silent Death first, thought this would compliment it. How wrong I was, had I have read this first I may well have not bothered with anymore of Peter May.

Good story but too long on audio

This book is probably much better in print. I was captivated by the story but the soul searching went on and on.
