Plot, characterization and setting expertly written. Solid historical fiction.
Plot line was compelling. I was bothered by the descriptions of the macabre homicides, which is why I give it a "4", not a "5".
Easy to listen to.
Stephen Hoye's Polish accent sounded too much like a Yiddush accent!
N/A I don't listen to any audio book more than once
The narrator is excellent. Good tone, pacing, accent, and resonance.
If you like historical fiction, you'll definitely like this fast paced, well researched novel. The author's precise command of English evokes vivid, realistic descriptions of setting and plot.
My husband and I only listen to audio books during our long 6 hour trips to visit our daughter. Finding a novel that appeals to our diverse tastes is a challenge! While I found some of the details too gory, albeit true to the times, this novel captured both our interest.
