A Thrill a Minute

I usually listen to audio books at 1.25 speed as I find I enjoy the books better -- but with this one I had to slow it down . . . Nothing against the narrator, but his accent was pretty thick. Even with that, I didn't consider it a bad thing as it enhanced the experience of the book.

Now on to the book itself -- holy crap -- started off with a pretty intense scene and never really slowed down. Even the parts where you could catch your breath were filled with tension -- you never knew what was going to happen next. And talk about a badass main character ...

Enough said about that -- read it, listen to it, enjoy it -- This is the beginning of a great series!

Fast Paced Thriller

Wow! My First ever Audible Listen was quite an intriguing experience!

Story wise this was a cracking introduction to the explosive world of Danny Pearson, Mobsters, Guns and Violence!

Pearson is a very strong protagonist and this book has the feel of a tv series like Strike Back and it’s certainly a story I feel could be adapted for the big screen.

Thoroughly enjoyable action packed listening.

For my first listen it definitely took some getting used to but the narrator and all his accents are very easy listening and he ups the ante with his voice control well bringing the feeling of action and tension.

Overall this was a great fun listen but I’ll likely read more in future

Superb Danny Pearson Thriller

Having read all the Danny Pearson series, the Audible version is great and really well produced. I found myself sitting outside appointments waiting for the chapter to finish. Really enjoyable and highly recommended. Nice work Steve.

Dreadful narrator

Only managed to listen to a few minutes of this because the narrator is just appalling. Might have better luck reading it instead.

Awesome! Action-packed escapism at its best!

If you’re looking for a thrill-a-minute action adventure romp with shades of Guy Ritchie’s work sewn in throughout, look no further than Stephen Taylor’s brilliant story. Having lived in East London myself (just off Whitechapel Road) Taylor hit all the right notes with the characters and setting. Super fast paced with no let up and I thought the narrator did a grand job. Highly recommended.

An Awesome White-Knuckle Experience!

A Special Forces hero born into a family of London gangsters - this book is destined to be a Jason Statham movie. The action scenes are brutal and the characters authentic. So much intrigue and clearly a lot more stories to be told in this universe. Plus, the performance is spectacular, filled with special touches to bolt the reader into the world of Danny Pearson until the very last page. Loved every second of it!

Man-fiction at its best: a high-octane thriller

The first in ST’s Danny Pearson series and a gripping start! This is man-fiction at its best: an action upon action, high octane thriller. If you like guns and bad guys, death and violence, this book’s for you. Narration well-paced and interesting and I liked the sound effects for phone calls and radio comms - a nice little touch you don’t hear often in audiobooks that made it feel a bit more real. I think for internal dialogue it was a step too far, but hey, not enough to knock off a star. A great, entertaining listen for a bit of escapism!
