Listened to first 3 chapters 4 times, thought it was a thriller but turned out to be a violent war story with military jingo and was not my cup of tea without some characters and story. Boring drag-on chest beating sleeping pill.
The only criticism I'd have is that the narrator didn't pause between chapters and it took a few seconds to realise that he'd switched between characters and moved onto a new chapter. Perhaps a few seconds pause or an announcement of the chapter number would be good. Otherwise a really good Spider book.
P.S. I only give a novel a score of five stars for what I would class a classic or something like a modern classic, as much as I like Stephen Leather.
And to give five stars for the narrator, it has to be an exceptional performance, as much as I like Paul Thornly.
Who does not love another Spider novel? Totally enthralling from start to finish, though I have to say as a father of two young girls this novel also made me feel sick to the stomach at times. But I guess that is all part of the emotional journey a good book will take you on.
Only downside was with the audio production, there seemed to be not enough of a pause between chapters or changes in character perspective, it's only a small negative but was still a bit confusing at times.

This is an extremely good book beautifully read it was however spoiled by the recording quality. At the beginning of each chapter the word chapter was cut in half with the number and first few words missing. Occasionally (I presume when the recording process was paused) words were truncated or missing. This is a characteristic that increasingly occurs with recent Audible books.
