STAR RATINGS GUIDE

A Lee Child style thriller set in a Day After Tomorrow World.

THE BIRDICT

This is the three-bird roast of novels and who doesn’t love a three for one? It’s a thriller set in a dystopia in a post-apocalyptic reality in which the world has ceased spinning. Big thumbs up to this smart premise.

The world building is comprehensive and fascinating, albeit (ahem) dark.

I would have liked the emphasis to lean further towards exploring the post-apocalyptic side, but that’s a preference rather than a flaw.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

Gemma Whelan is the kind of narrator I know I can count on. Versatile of accent, smooth of tone and dry of wit, she delivers a characteristically strong performance.
