    The Persimmon Tree opens in Indonesia in 1942 on the cusp of Japanese invasion and the evacuation of Batavia (Jakarta) by the Dutch. Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Duncan is on holiday there, in pursuit of an exotic butterfly known as the Magpie Crow. It's an uncertain, dangerous time to be in Indonesia, and Nick's options of getting out are fast dwindling. Amidst the fear and chaos he falls in love with Anna, the beautiful daughter of a Dutch acquaintance, and she nicknames him 'Mr Butterfly'.

    Corinne says: "An excellent sequel"

    I have 174 books in my Audible library and this is the only book that compelled me to write a review. This is not the worst book I've listen to, but the largest waste of time. Much of the book is boring, uninteresting dialog, followed up with several very annoying characters, from the Chicago Marine who constantly repeated himself in violent outbursts, to the drunk father, evil step mother, to the main character himself who just happens to be the best sailor, rifleman, translator, butterfly collector, and stabby knife guy in the Australian Army, all be the age of 18 years. He should be promoted to General. Choose another book.

    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Find another book."
    Overall

    This book was like biting into a nice piece of steak chewing, enjoying, and have to spit it out.

    This book kept my attention and I was excited for a dramatic unthinkable ending and got nothing. It was just over. There were so many questions left unanswered and it ended.

    After investing so much time listening I felt a little ripped off. No, I felt a lot ripped off.

    Skip it!
