Ignore the nay-sayers below. I admit I was not overly keen on this when I first heard it many years ago but listening again I think it is wonderful and one of the better McCoy plays. The theme tune is excellent. The inclusion of Tony Blackburn is excellent. The dance music is excellent. You even get a bonus instrumental track. The Ibiza setting is inspired. The complex and interlinked relationships between all the characters unfolds excellently. Although I originally disliked the character development for Ace I now appreciate how it fits as an essential piece of this partciular jigsaw.
Be warned, there is a very adult drugs strand and a few instances of cutting half-way through obvious swear-words. This all adds to the authenticity for me. There is also a lot of nineties style introspection and emotionalism linked to religion and 'purpose' (or lack thereof). This may be offputting or dated for some but it's not as stiffling as in the new adventures books. Overall this is very different from other Big Finish plays and worth hearing just because of that. IMO this one is highly recommended.
