    Story

    At just 16 years Danny Dunn has everything going for him: brains, looks, sporting aptitude - and luck with the ladies. His mother steers him towards a university education, but with just six months of his degree to go, he signs up for the AIF, driven by a desire to serve his country and plain wanderlust. Danny serves in South-east Asia, spends three and a half years as a POW, and returns a broken man, embittered and facially disfigured. He is scared and overwhelmed by the need to sort himself out, to find out who the hell he is....

    Overall

    Bryce Courtney captures the spirit of the Australian battler from the drought ravaged Riverina country to the industrial heartland of working class Sydney. Pub culture was an important feature of twentieth century Australia and it is artfully interwoven into this intriguing tale.

    A great listen.

    Story

    It is 1588, and King Philip of Spain has assembled a great fleet and army to crush the English and end Queen Elizabeth's reign.

    One man who has inside knowledge of this event is the young Henry Gresham. His good looks, youth, and wealth are the envy of some at court, so his position as spy for Walsingham further endangers his life.

    Overall

    This is a thoroughly engrossing swim through the English Channel with both Drake and the Armarda. You don't quite know what Henry Greham is up to until the last but, like Manion, you are ready to defend him which ever way that he turns. A great listen - it made me go and order the rest of Martin Stephen's books on Audible.
