Description

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.

Great book. Not extraordinary

First, the audiobook was very well done. The voice, diction, and intonation was good and enjoyable. It just wasn’t something that I found earth shattering or without room for improvement. There are audiobooks out there that deserve that rating (the Martian comes to mind) but overall I was pretty happy with the audiobook person. The story was also enjoyable. More so that many I have read in the last year, but again there were several holes in the plot and storyline that could have made this book more remarkable. If you are looking for a good book to pass the time and relax, this is the one.

Very enjoyable thriller

Like good espionage thrillers, “To Die In Vienna” slowly introduces the clues Freddie Makin must solve to save his life. Although only a hired spy, Freddie has skills from a former job. The people who killed Cheng, the man Freddie was watching, are Western intelligence agents with powerful connections. Freddie goes on the run while trying to learn why Cheng was killed and what Freddie might have seen that made Freddie a target. The story progresses at a good pace with plausible periods of action throughout. Only at the end do you learn who dies in Vienna. I might be niece, but I have trouble believing our intelligence agents have a license to kill like the proverbial James Bond. Although there are sometimes rogue agents, I would hope most of that crew would have had the integrity to the stop the killing of an American citizen.

Just an enjoyable yarn

I've listened to several of Wignall's novels but this is easily my favorite. I intentionally did not ready anything about it so I had no idea what it was about. I thought it was just a wonderful, simple, contained story that kept me in rapt attention until the very end. I thought the narration really added to the vibe; it didn't feel as heavy and dark (even given the subject matter) and the main character really came off as likable. I just enjoyed the crap out of this even if I can't pinpoint all the reasons why.

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.
