    (2406)

    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommeded this book to a friend! The writing paints such a vibrant picture while the performance of Humphrey Bower brings it to life.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Bowers performance was the best I have ever heard in an audiobook. His ability to give each character a different and very specific voice is unbelieveable. He brought the characters to life. More than once when listening while driving to work I missed my turn, completely absorbed in the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    EPIC! Though I cannot believe an movie could ever get the detail portrayed in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The descriptive writing put me in London in 1830's and in Hobart town of 1840's. Loved this book and glad it is part of a trilogy so I can keep listening!
