Overall, it was an entertaining read. However, there is room for improvement. I actually gave it 4.4 stars on my blog but goodreads doesn't allow so I have to round.

Plot: 4.5 stars

The plot was great. There’s the vengeful Akira, who holds a grudge against “The West” which includes Europe and the US. He wants to bring them down. He goes about killing as many of their agents as he can while trying to get his pawn elected as the next Russian president. There’s a lot of backstabbing and it’s really h

This is the first book of a new series. I was contacted by Tim Jopling to give a honest review.


Hell bent on changing the world forever.

The most effective partnership MI6 and the West have.

MI6 protectors, destined to stop the darkness from sweeping across the globe.


Nothing is ever what it seems. Don’t turn your back on anyone, or anything. The world is at ease and its politicians are simply unaware, and unprepared. Not for

From the first pages on my Kindle to last of this book? Fantastic! What an enjoyable ride! I'm not usually a spy, thriller, mystery kind of girl, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading Author, Tim's new novel series. Book 1 was fantastic, and this one even MORE SO!

An excellent read for a first time novelist, and of course the story pulls you in when Akira loss's his wife and begins a quest to find who took the love of his life. Awe, always starts with love right? From there, your taken on a thrill rid

Great plot! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author has edited it for spelling, grammar, etc., so anyone who had a problem with the editing should now be much happier with this book. I am really looking forward to the next installment which I believe should be out around Dec. of this year.

Excellent read! For anyone who enjoys action, suspense, mystery and espionage books then give this a go. You can't help but feel involved with the main characters and you learn about them on a different level. Loads of twists to keep you on your toes- each chapter uncovers a bit more to the story that you weren't expecting and makes you want to keep reading- can't wait for the next one! ...more

After reading the first, which was OK, really felt I should read the second to give it a chance.
But author ran out of ideas. Nothing really much happens (well, truthfully, does anything ever happen?) but it's the author's take on the whole thing that makes the difference; whether he hs an innovative style, a fresh idea, a way of following things up and reaching great conclusions - all that.
Really good authors offer slow-burner books; they reach towards great conclusions, it's not all in the firs

“High speed action; all the way!"

I loved 'Out Of The Shadows' and this sequel doesn't disappoint. The action is unrelenting. This is achieved in part by having two threads of the story line being interwoven into each chapter and being progressed side by side. The switch of theatre, whether it's the London Underground or the streets of Moscow occurs at a pivotal, cliff-hanger moment. You can't wait to find out what happens next; but then you're suddenly thrown into a different location and the te

Tim Jopling creates great character, suspense, and action in Underground Murmurs. From the beginning, I was drawn into the world of action and danger at every turn. Through all this, he creates people that are compelling and keeps you wanting more. The book was a departure from my usual reading, and was a delightful find. I always enjoy learning about what drives the characters in any book. It's not just action and intrigue, but real people in their "regular lives". I can't wait to read his next ...more

An exciting and thrilling read, both book 1 and book 2. It was very descriptive and gave me a good insight into the characters and places. I found that I wanted to read more after Book 1, and Book 2 certainly did not disappoint! I recommend these books and am looking forward to more from this series and author.

My name is Tim Jopling and I love any spy and espionage books, TV, or films! People always say you write about what you know and although I've never had any personal experience (I've worked in the IT sector for 16 years!) I've read a lot of novels (you can't really beat the original Ian Fleming novels in my opinion) and watched as many TV shows and films as I possibly can. I'm a
