Mini review: “Night Heron” by Adam Brookes (audiobook version)

nh_cover

This is the story, set in China, of a prisoner who escapes and wants to sell secrets to the British government, for whom he worked as a spy many years before.  I wanted to like this book more but something just has not clicked.  Nothing stood out as exceptional – the story is unremarkable, the characters are not bestowed with any real warmth.

I think it is partly to do with the audiobook narration – the actor Jason Isaacs does a professional job but it can become slightly monotonous.  Several of the British characters sound similar.  This has led me to lose track at some points of details, of which character said what.

Overall, I was disappointed.
