    What did you love best about Speaks the Nightbird?

    Great story and narration. The story is always turning and twisting and the narrator is superb with all the characters coming in and out of the story line.


    What other book might you compare Speaks the Nightbird to and why?

    It's more recent history and more of a family history but you could make a comparison with Jeffery Archer's "As the Crow Flies."


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    Matthew Corbett is a great character and performed perfectly but I'd say Mr. Ballerini did an exceptional job with Jerusalem Exodus, the "preacher."


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    America's 17th century "Super Sleuth."


    Any additional comments?

    This is a long one but well worth the listen.
