as per usual, the story goes full tilt and the end of the chapter ends with a delicious description of preparing the dishes mentioned in the preceding chapter. A real tension breaker. Good listening but long.
Big fan of the genre and I think the author does a great job, as does the narrator. I listen as a way to pass the time on commutes too and from wherever. I like books that keep up a good pace, have good characters, clear plot-line, and are action packed. This fit the bill for sure, just downloaded sequel ( and listened to Red Sparrow before this one). Also cool that they incorporate food recipes - many sound delicious and give me ideas outside the world of books. Have fun !
Love it. Keeps me want to listen.
Getting tired of the recipes
Great true to life operations. Makes you feel like you are part of the story.
Enjoyed the continuation of the story from Red Sparrow. Good plot lines with new villains and heros but sometimes the spy craft detail gets a bit much.
The red sparrow was mr Matthews first novel. I loved it. Now he's written a squeal
