I really enjoyed the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons -- but, the talent seen in those books was not visible in this effort. The characters were cookie-cutter stereotypes, the plot was a misery and the technical details inaccurate. Save your book credits for Mr. Brown's later works.
We love the Charlie Bone series. This story is equally well written but I must agree with the other reviewers on the narration. Simon Russel Beale was a perfect narrator for this series. The narration for this book was very poor. It was difficult to discern who was speaking and all the characters came across with a high-pitched whine. Truly unfortunate that the narrator was changed in the 5th book of the series. I hope that Simon Russel Beale is brought back for the next.
