    The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla - his Moscow Centre nemesis - and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

    What would have made Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy better?

    I love spy books, but for some reason this book was extremely difficult for me to follow. There are a lot of characters and the book seems to jump around to different scenes and time periods. This just wasn't for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John le Carre again?

    Yes, I would check another of his books to see if the experience would be different.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did a good job.

    Jim Paul's meteoric rise took him from a small town in Northern Kentucky to governor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, yet he lost it all - his fortune, his reputation, and his job - in one fatal attack of excessive economic hubris. In this honest, frank analysis, Paul and Brendan Moynihan revisit the events that led to Paul's disastrous decision and examine the psychological factors behind bad financial practices in several economic sectors.

    My name is Simon. I’m 10 years old. I’m a serial killer. Robert Stern (Rupert Penry-Jones), a successful defense attorney, doesn’t know what lies in store for him when he agrees to meet a new client in a derelict estate on the outskirts of Berlin. Stern is more than surprised, when his old love interest and professional nurse Carina (Emilia Fox) presents him a ten year old boy as his new client. Simon (Jack Boulter), a terminally ill child, who is convinced he has murdered many men in a previous life.

    Would you try another book from Sebastian Fitzek and/or the narrators?

    Yes I would.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sebastian Fitzek? Why or why not?

    This story had potential. It just fell short for me.


    Did The Child inspire you to do anything?

    Purchase another book.


    Any additional comments?

    There was to much dramatics in the story. It was like listening to a movie from another room. At times, you could not here what was being said due to all of the background noise. (ie. rain, thunderstorms.)

    I would have enjoyed this more if it was an actual book being read.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Where does Dark Places rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the top.


    What other book might you compare Dark Places to and why?

    Gone Girl. It is very twisted, and makes you appreciate your normal uneventful life.
