Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

He’s seen something that could get him killed. But what?

Freddie Makin is a spy for hire. For a year he’s been watching Jiang Cheng, an academic whose life seems suspiciously normal. To Freddie it’s just a job: he never asks who’s paying him and why - until the day someone is sent to kill him, and suddenly the watcher becomes the watched.

On the run from whoever wants him dead, Freddie knows he must have seen something incriminating. The only trouble is, he has no idea what. Is the CIA behind all this - or does it go higher than that? Have his trackers uncovered his own murky past?

As he’s forced into a lethal dance across Vienna, Freddie knows one thing for sure: his only hope for survival is keeping the truth from the other side, and making sure the secrets from his past stay hidden.

I want to live at the Madhouse

This has all the components of a great book: a likeable protagonist, an interesting storyline, lots of atmosphere and a fantastic narrator. It was a fun read, enhanced by the original and entertaining location of the Madhouse Hotel. Only in Supernatural have I ever seen an otherwise overlooked scene like a motel/hotel given such personality.

I would listen to everything Kevin Wignall has written, if it were all read by George Newbern.

Nice narration

Good story but the narrator made this that extra special. Decent pace and interesting characters. Really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book.

I was not sure what to expect when I started this book and it seemed a bit low key. But as things were revealed and characters were introduced, and sometimes disposed of, I became more and more addicted. Not an ending I would have guessed.

Good thriller

This was a pretty good thriller. I think I missed some things because I was listening to the audiobook and occasionally got distracted. It would definitely be a good book to read.

An adequately enjoyable book

This is a good book. Not fabulous but quite good.

The setting of Vienna is a great start! One of my favorite cities. Freddie is a former, well - something, probably clandestine but we don’t know for sure until later. He is not a surveillance expert hired to watch a Chinese professor. After several months things go terribly wrong.

I enjoyed Freddie’s exploits. I was not surprised to read that the movie rights had been picked up. This book read like the plot of a film. I can imagine it’ll be good if they stick to the book.

At first I didn’t care for the narrator but his voice grew on me.

I am hoping there’s a sequel.

Ok

Narration was good, but I thought the story was slightly weak and predictable. Characters were 2-dimensional.

I really enjoyed this. It is beautifully read in an unassuming way that gratifyingly belies the plot, which as usual for Mr Wignall,

is elegantly pleasing whilst packing its punches.
