    This would be a fairly standard Scottish gangster thriller, following in the wake of Ian Rankin and the like, if it wasn't for the addition of the story about Jonathan Stuart's car accident and the subsequent relationship formed with 'David' in the call centre in Mumbai. This 'underdog' element added an unusual twist that makes me want to go back for more. Not sure the ploy of needing to buy book 2 to find out what happens would have worked if book 1 hadn't have been on permafree.

This 'underdog' element added an unusual twist that makes me want to go back for more. Not sure the ploy of needing to buy book 2 to find out what happens would have worked if book 1 hadn't have been on permafree. But that's probably because Irvine uses the same title for both books. If he had used a different title and made it a two-part series, the marketing would have seemed less aggressive. This is a very quick, easy read that I finished in a single session. Recommended for anyone who likes gangster stories, but welcomes an unusual twist.

    "If only I'd known..." The story line was easy to follow. The characters came from all walks of life and felt genuine. I'm not a great fan of books that switch setting and point of view in every chapter to advance the story; it can be confusing, but this one kept my interest throughout. Then came the abrupt ending. Why do author's persist in using this marketing ploy? Why not have the courage of your convictions and write a complete story?

If it's destined to be part of a series it might not be exclusively a stand-alone, but at least it brings the vast majority of plot threads to a conclusion. Isn't that preferable for a reader? This had 5* all over it until I realised I'd been misled.

    Bloody Brilliant I truly enjoyed the first part of this series, Say you're sorry. I don't understand why readers writing it's predictable. Of course it is!

And how it is actually happened, Anand aka David in India felt sorry for Jonathan, and he planned to get the right person to pay for it. Because he himself is a hacker.

You cannot preferred a breach, they always find a way, that is the scary part. Cyber security attack is a big thing, it happens all over the world, every day, every hour and every minute. I love the storyline and feel truly sorry for Jonathan, he is an honest character and can't believe what has happened, after he has his first accident in his long life, that his car insurance didn't pay him a penny to get his car fixed. He doesn't now that the insurance he has is a fraud, scam. This first one is was free as well the second book in this series. I got it already and look forward to find out what Will happened to criminal Tommy, because he will get a taste of his own medicine. Great writing style, clever plot with a thrilling outcome. Speech on the characters are very well done, same for the monologues. Very detailed in the emotional impact that the characters go through. I really recommend this book!!

    Set in Scotland, this crime thriller follows the lives of disparate characters: Campbell McKenzie - a DCI, leading the investigation into the death of a fellow officer, Thomas McNunn - local underworld crime boss, Ivor Petrovsky - a Russian crime lord and competitor to McNunn, old age pensioner and widower, Jonathan, a competent driver with a broken bumper and Anand, aka David, a call centre telephone operator in India, tasked with hindering Jonathan’s claim.

As the characters’ lives intersect, and drugs, murder and betrayal force them into conflict with each other, the only question is: who will prevail? And, for the answer, you’ll need to buy book two. Now, for myself, I must say I admire the author’s chutzpah in cutting the story in two. I’m sure other readers will flock to the internet and click away to find out more. Sadly, I am not in that category. Although the writing was solid and the characters understandable, even relatable, I don’t think I’m going to lose sleep not knowing what happens next. As much as I have no doubt there is more story there, the ending (although sudden) wasn’t a shock-horror cliffhanger. The splitting of the book seemed - I would be reluctant to use the word ‘gimmicky’ but it certainly felt cynical. A shame.

    A surprise??? I selected this (free) book to read because it was set in Edinburgh. The story is fine as far as it goes but I cant help but think that it's part of a marketing ploy by the author. Say You're Sorry is only half a story and the author has the cheek to ask if the reader is surprised the book is finished...Well yes I was! There was still 14 minutes of reading time left so I hadn't expected the abrupt ending or the huge sales pitch to buy the follow up or one of his other books. As a r A surprise???

As a result, I'm quite happy to walk away from this author. I don't care that I won't find out what happens to the characters. Normally when I find a good story (in a full length book ) I am more than happy to buy the rest of a series, but not in this case. I refuse to be manipulated by this author.

    Anand lives outside Mumbai but dreams of getting back to his studies in Birmingham. Now stuck in a call centre dedicated to helping not its clients but only the insurance company it serves, Anand's conscience is pricked by one call from Edinburgh, home of the football team he theoretically supports, Hibs. What if he actually helped a customer for once? Mr Stuart wasn't at fault when his car was run into at a red light. Why should he lose his pride and joy because of their immoral system and the Anand lives outside Mumbai but dreams of getting back to his studies in Birmingham.

What if he actually helped a customer for once? Mr Stuart wasn't at fault when his car was run into at a red light. Why should he lose his pride and joy because of their immoral system and the lies of the other driver? Why won't the latter admit his error and just say he's sorry? This is part one of two, so nothing is resolved by the end of her than Anand's determination to fight Mr Stuart's corner.

    Thrills and Spills throughout First time I have read an Ian CP Irving book and it was a very enjoyable read. DCI McKenzie and DI Wessex are two interesting characters I suspect destined for a number of books. McKenzie’s history with alcohol I am sure will become a part of his troubled past. Whilst Wessex’s upbringing and her Mentor can only bring conflict to her life and career. Looking forward to the second book having read the first.

    I don’t normally go for books like this but I am glad I did, fantastic story with a good plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. It was so good I couldn’t put the book down. Downloading the second book as I write this and can’t wait to read it. Looking forward to reading many more books from this author 👏👏👏😁

    Super Another great novel by Ian. I’m sure the second part will be just as compelling. I’m not a fan of profanity at all which spoils it for me as the plot is good, the characters seem so real but as I’ve read The Assassins Gift I know what’ll happen in the next book but not the details so here goes for the continuation.

    I love all of Ian Irvines books, all are different and unusual clever plots. This one is about a Scottish crime war, but tied up with call centres and the morality of what insurance companies do. It is a clever twisty plot, but you have to buy book 2 to know what happens!These are all good books and I highly recommend them.

A great twist with a lover. Do read. Irvine strikes again Another excellent title by Ian. Had to keep reading this David v Goliath, good v evil.

    Crime with a humane twist The 2 threads to this book keep the reader enthralled. The usual crime story is enlivened by the human interest story running alongside it.

    Enjoyed this book till it finished abruptly to find out that you had to buy book two where the story continues and finishes. Not good in my opinion. A book should finish the current story with a teaser of what happens next. I wont be buying book two.

    Disappointing If you are not prepared to purchase book 2 in the series don't even start to read this one. It jumps around a bit but is an engaging story that unfortunately does not reach a conclusion, that comes in book 2.

    Very disappointed with this book it was advertised as book 1 of 2 but to be honest it felt like I read only half a book. Unless a prospective reader intends to purchase both books I recommend don't give just book 1 a try as you'll end up disappointed.
