    Joe Spork repairs clocks, a far cry from his late father, a flashy London gangster. But when Joe fixes one particularly unusual device, his life is suddenly upended. Joe's client, Edie Banister, is more than just a kindly old lady - she's a former superspy. And the device? It's a 1950s doomsday machine. And having triggered it, Joe now faces the wrath of both the government and a diabolical South Asian dictator, Edie's old arch-nemesis.

    Maine Colonial says: "A cure for the modern cynic"
    "Amazing stuff. Great story and performance."

    Story

    Picture Neil Gaiman and Kurt Vonnegut at their peaks writing a book together. This might be the result. A mad romp through speculative fiction, weaving in and out of actual history to produce a story both mad in its premise and even more-so in its scope. Even a dog gets an inner-monologue. I'll not insult the book by trying to summarize it.

    This is my first exposure to Nick Harkaway (based on a review of the book online) and it was well worth it. This is also the first performance by Daniel Weyman I've listened to. He only added to the joy of listening. I will certainly be looking for other works from these gentlemen.

    Treat yourself.
