    When Mark Hartmann is asked to perform a post-mortem on a lab assistant killed by cancer, everything looks straightforward. But his initial findings are surprising: Millicent Sweet appears to have died of several different, aggressive tumours. Before he can discuss this with colleagues, he's called to a conference in Scotland. A serious error of judgement gives a pharmaceutical company a handle on him, and they threaten to expose his excesses unless he falsifies his report on Sweet.

    Debbie says: "The narration makes it worth the listen."
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    I am an ten books an month listener, and I LOVED this book. Very british, very stylish, thrilling story and a wonderful narrator. (Of course he has a brittish accent, he IS brittish!) If you want to listen to an american accent, don't listen to this book. If you want to listen to quality, do, and enjoy!

    Crippled by a high-altitude collision with another airplane, Wayfarer 880, half the roof ripped away, flies on in the evening sky. Seated in the back, amid dead and dying passengers, pilot Donovan Nash fights decompression and oxygen deprivation to make it to the shattered cockpit. With help from a woman from his carefully concealed past, and a handful of survivors, Donovan must try to fly the heavily damaged plane with no electrical power or functioning instruments...

    Amazon Customer says: "Non-stop Suspense!"
    "Full of clich?'s"
    Overall

    In this book men are silent, strong and capable. Woman are weepy and sentimental and asking all the time: What's happening? Or: What's going to happen now?
    The dialogues are incredibly poor. Two stars for the parts about flying.
    This book is not for any female who can think for herself.

    In 1878, two young stage magicians clash in the dark during the course of a fraudulent séance. From this moment on, their lives become webs of deceit and revelation as they vie to outwit and expose each other. In the course of pursuing each other's ruin, they will deploy all the deception their magician's craft can command. Their rivalry will take them to the peaks of their careers, but with terrible consequences.

    Andrew says: "One of a Kind."
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    I've never written a Review before, although I've listened to many, many books. But this time I just HAVE to do it, because The Prestige is such a wonderful book, and extremely well narrated.
    This book has everything a book should have. There's an original storyline (which is refreshing when there is SO much more of the same these days), it's beautifully written, there's suspense and some horror, the characters are interesting, and it's the sort of story you want to hear again right after you have finished it.
    Okay, the first half of te book can be a bit slow for some people. This book is not a glass of beer, but a wonderful glass of excellent wine. It has to be savoured. Sit back and let the magic do it's work!
