    A troubled World War I veteran races across the frozen steppe of 1930's Ukraine to save a child from a shadowy killer with unthinkable plans. Luka is a war veteran who now wants nothing more than to have a quiet life with his family. His village has, so far, remained hidden from the advancing Soviet brutality. But everything changes the day a stranger arrives, pulling a sled bearing a terrible cargo. In the chaos, a little girl has vanished, and Luka is the only man with the skills to find the stolen child and her kidnapper.

    David says: "Brilliant--both the writing and the narration"
    "Wonderful Narration!"

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

    Yes. At first the accent took a bit of getting used to, but really made the story ring true. It was an important component of feeling the characters brought to life.


    What other book might you compare The Child Thief to and why?

    This is a unique story, with a unique setting. it is difficult to compare it to other books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not so much a scene but the setting. It was a character unto itself.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very interesting listen, not a mystery so much as a thriller. At parts exciting and sad, but keeps you guessing. This is worth a listen.
