Excellent book - although the names and town names are very confusing to an American like me. Very John Le Carre'ish. Patient, layered, info in bits and pieces Book jumps around from WWII to the 1999-2000. Not as dark as I thought it would be. Nesbo is going on my list of authors to read more of. And the narration by Robin Sachs was excellent. Probably best if listened to in long sections for continuity.
Never heard of this author before. Should have.
Book is complex and compelling. Tons of characters.
Book 1 is basically an introduction to the people, their relationships, places and times. And I kept thinking: why am I still listening. But I was still listening, and getting more and more interested in how it was going to play-out.
By the end, I was hooked.
Narrator Pacey is simply awesome.

Excellent book. Tends to slow down a bit in the 2nd half, but overall a compelling story about interesting people and times. The descriptions about life in the UK and Australia were fascinating. The narration was quite good, with the narrator going back and forth from the London accent of the UK to the Australia accent.
A major dissappointment after the great Border Triology series. Way too wordy. Too many long speaches. Narration was fine, same voice (Tom Stechachulte) that does the new James Lee Burke series set in New Mexico. Lets just say that this book makes Larry McMurtry look like pollyana.
