Inhaltsangabe

When a man with a gun breaks into her school, nursery teacher Louise Kennedy knows there's not likely to be a happy ending...But Jaime isn't there on a homicidal whim, and he's as scared as the hostages he's taken.

While an armed police presence builds up outside, he'll only talk to Ben Whistler, an MI6 accountant who worked with his lover, Miro. Miro's apparently gone on the run, along with a huge sum of money. Jaime doesn't believe Miro's a thief - though he certainly had secrets.

But then, so does Louise, so do the other hostages, and so do some of those on the outside - those who'd much rather that Jaime was silenced.

Lovely twist of the spook theme

While not the Mick Herron I am used to from the Slough House series, this turned out to be a very nice book that was a lot of fun to listen to. In particular, this slight variation of the spooks theme with the main protagonist not being a spook herself added a bit of flavor to the otherwise well-established genre. Also, I liked the how the main plotline revolves around one main setting, with smaller jumps back and forth in time gradually adding more and more pieces to an intriguing puzzle. I for one liked the final twist, even though the ending was a bit abrupt perhaps.

One minor issue: I more and more dislike speakers that try to mimic foreign accents. Besides the fact that this is not necessary to tell the characters apart, it becomes increasingly annoying as the book progresses and often whole passages riddled with unnecessary mispronunciations. I would have enjoyed the book even more if the otherwise excellent speaker had not felt the need to do this.
