An exciting, brutal, and riveting new Sherlock Holmes mystery with a spot on performance by Simon Vance.
It reads like a great British television drama script, and Porter does a wonderful job of making George Orwell a prophet. John Lee does his usual outstanding performance.
The story is gripping, and the narration seems true to the experience. It's too bad none of the experience is true. A 2006 BBC documentary film proved that Rawicz's story was made up.
Here we have "Under the Tuscan Sun" meets "The Godfather", meets "Harlquin Romances" meets "Penthouse Forum ". Something for everyone, whether you want it or not. Makes for an interesting listen while in your car with your spouse for 6 hours. The one things we were wondering --- did the author actually taste the "fried calf's brains" recipe she offers in the narrative? She certainly doesn't menton how it tasted. Oh well.
An outstanding saga, an fantastic performance, a truly riveting listen. Profoundly moving at times.
