    From the author of The Power of One comes a new novel about Africa. The time is 1939. White South Africa is a deeply divided nation with many of the Afrikaner people fanatically opposed to the English. The world is also on the brink of war, and South Africa elects to fight for the Allied cause against Germany. Six-year-old Tom Fitzsaxby finds himself in The Boys Farm, an orphanage in a remote town in the high mountains, where the Afrikaners side fiercely with Hitler's Germany.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Whitethorn to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audio books immensely, I would be ill advised to suggest that it is better than print.


    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    He captures the essence of the characters so perfectly and with such feeling - bravo Humphrey.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have to say tears did well up when the little fox terrier Tinker died of a broken heart

    When Sienna Hegarty turns up at his family home one night, covered in blood and frozen in shock, psychologist Joe O'Loughlin finds himself drawn deep into her world, trying to unearth the dark secrets her mind has buried. The police find a major piece of the puzzle at Sienna’s house: her father, a retired cop, is face-down in a pool of his own blood, his throat slashed and his skull caved in. The blood covering Sienna was his.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bleed for Me to be better than the print version?

    I have been through all of Michael Connelly detective Harry Bosch's cases, Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole and now reading Michael Robotham's Joe O'loughlin. I love Sean Barrett narrating, you really feel part of the energy of the characters when he reads. I used to read but now only listen to novels. For me the narrator is important as well as the characters and plot. These three detectives tick the boxes for me.


    What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

    I love Sean Barrett narration, he falls comfortably into each of his personas top marks


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read and top narration well done
