    Story

    Indonesia, January 2005. Nick Stone is working to retrieve incriminating material from amongst the tsunami-ravaged landscape. His team is attacked, and a man dies - but not before he makes an agonising promise that will return one day to haunt him.... Moscow, March 2011. Semi-retired but restless, Stone finds him at the centre of a mission that leads him from the Alpine enclaves of the super-rich to the savage underbelly of war-torn Somalia.

    Brodie says: "Great audio wallpaper"

    Story
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His rushed speech made it almost impossible to follow. Especially bad for characters names. Mumbling not helpful, either.


    Was Dead Men worth the listening time?

    Yes, because I'm listening to the whole series.

    Story

    In this stunning new novel, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure time. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more years for themselves. At last, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.

    Mahendra (MH) says: "Mitch does it once more"
    "Deep and thought provoking concept."

    Story
    What does Dan Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's by far my fave narrator for the warmth and expressiveness of his voice. Could listen to him all day!


    Any additional comments?

    Mitch writes another outstanding story which is deeply moving, thought provoking, and stays with you long after the story ends. I wish he'd write 3 books a year!
