Grimly colorful. Detailed. Narration is good when speaking a male voice but John Lee makes the women sound as if they are auditioning to play the lead in a Dracula film - not seductive - just creepy & false.
Expands my imagination into pre-WWII germany
new to the genre so I don't know of any
the different voices
would have liked to but it's lot of book. Concepts take time to digest
The story was great until the end and then the ending was very unsatisfying! The narrator and his performance were very good.
I would listen again to a good story, which this is. Nice twists and compelling characters
Nicely done if just a bit short on the side of differentiating each character's voice. Not sure why all the accents are British when the characters are German though.......sort of loses something there.
I hesitated before ordering this book since it deals with a German detective in the 1930s. But, he is not a Nazi and the Nazi political background to the book shows its horrid nature. Now, as a detective story it is a good book, well written and narrated. My only problem with the book is the dialog. While cursing typically doesn't offend me, I grew tired of the crass language and imagery. The detective has the hard edge attitude one often finds in such characters (one finds it all too often for my taste). He and many of those he meets are too macho, too much the tough guy who is disgruntled with life. The one's who aren't Nazi's ought to be far more than disgruntled and some are, but that's not my gripe.
...in Germany. The protagonist is not a Nazi, so don't get your knickers in a twist. Rather well-crafted story. John Lee's narration is wonderful as usual.
Really enjoyed this Book refreshing story instead of formulaic crime story. The prose is several cuts above the usual suspense novels and the narrator is perfect for this story line
Nonstop action and suspense. In excellent plot and well written. I can't wait to listen to the authors other novels and see how Bernard Gunther's character evolves!!
