    Story

    When Nobel laureate Liam Connor is found dead at the bottom of one of Ithaca, New York’s famous gorges, his research collaborator, Cornell professor of nanoscience Jake Sterling, refuses to believe it was suicide. Why would one of the world’s most eminent biologists, a 86-year old man in good health who survived some of the darkest days of the Second World War, have chosen to throw himself off a bridge? And who was the mysterious woman caught on camera at the scene?

    Alan says: "Makes you think you should be taking notes."
    "Unbelievable, implausible plot"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The plot is contrived and completely implausible. I could not suspend my disbelief at all. The characters have no personality - the character of the scientist is that he's Irish. That's it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Paul McEuen again?

    Probably not.


    What about Rob Shapiro’s performance did you like?

    He did an excellent job of narrating. I just wish he had something better to work with.


    Any additional comments?

    The book seems very amateurish. More like a self-published novel than a novel that has been selected by actual editors.
