How to read aloud well 10/12/19
Kier has seen his father murdered, the police want to arrest him and the bad guys are after him. He finds himself drawn into a secret organisation of crime fighters, discovers his father was a member and sets out to avenge the murder.
Voake is careful to temper the violence and rip-roaring adventure with an underlying sense of justice and responsibility. Kier doesn’t indulge in violence for its own sake. He spends many weeks in an intensive mental and physical training regime which ensures his reactions are both considered and appropriate.
Voake provides fast and exciting action but always underpinned by a thoughtful, ethical subtext.
