Great story

(5 Sterne)

I'm new to this author, I really enjoyed the story and the reader. I will definitely listen to more from this writer.

(5 Sterne)

Excellent book! Tom is an amazing reader; he makes the pages simply come alive. Bravo!

a story of espionage with great deal of mystery throughout

(3,5 Sterne)

The reader is steady and clear (without being dry!) easy to listen to. I enjoyed the story as well. The beginning had some extremely repetitive conversations that were hard to get through (ie “this man is going to die”) but the story picked up after a bit and was well worth listening to.

Lost interest

(2 Sterne)

The reader has very fast speech, and never pauses at the end of chapters. You never really realize that the chapters are over before he's saying his name again. His cadence seems to be consistent, which sometimes makes it hard to follow the plot.

Interesting "read"

(4 Sterne)

The narrator did a decent job at making this intrigue story an enjoyable & interesting read. Just enough uncertainty to keep you listening. Going to listen to more books by this author.

Sparky

(5 Sterne)

(5 Sterne)

An old fashioned thriller

(3 Sterne)

Kept me interested though the work now feels out dated.
