The idea of a post WWII Germany and hunting for evil Nazi's had potential. The book however realized none of it as it rambles through a self reflective narrative that neither tells a story nor develops any characters.
90% of the time the story deals with what the main character is thinking. It never seems to develop into a plot to follow nor enjoy.
This easily is my least favorite Audible download in 3 years. Maybe if you have enjoyed other of this authors books you may enjoy it, but I found it uncompelling and tedious.
This is my least favorite Lehane so far, Still a decent listen but seemed to lack the suspense and depth of the others. Without providing a spoiler it was a weaker ending then I have grown to expect from Lehane.
The audio quality is so bad that I could not listen to the whole book.
Nice suspense story, well written and enjoyable to follow.
However this may be the worst narrator ever for an audible book, he makes all kinds of noices between sentences that become very annoying. Key was enough volume to hear the story but low enough to minimize his noices.
Not at all what I expected. Instead of a magic fantasy with wizards it was a coming to age story in a different world setting that bored my 12yr old to death. The authors attempt at creating a different world with different words just became frustrating to listen to.
