    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jess Walter and/or Edoardo Ballerini?

    I was seduced by the reviews for this book, but highly disappointed. The reader is good,(apart from his attempt at an Irish accent) but the story is not. I have got half way though, hoping it will get better, but it hasn't. The characters are overdone and the story jumps between times & characters and is very disjointed. The characters are caricatures, so instead of being drawn into the lives of the characters, I found myself cringing at them.

    Story

    With only the riddles of ancient writers to guide them, and time rapidly running out, Jack and his team must fight their way past traps, labyrinths and a host of deadly enemies - knowing that this time they cannot, will not, must not fail. The mission is incredible. The consequence of failure is unimaginable. The ending is unthinkable.

    Harrison says: "Great Book"
    "Melodramatic & contrived."
    Overall

    I stopped listening to this during the second chapter, as was determined to give it a go. I wanted "airport trash", but over the top for me.
