Prentis, senior clerk in the 'dead crimes' department of police archives, is becoming more and more confused. Alienated from his wife and children, and obsessed by his father, a wartime hero now the mute inmate of a mental hospital, Prentis feels increasingly unsettled as his enigmatic boss, Mr Quinn, turns his investigation towards him and his father.
Gradually Prentis suspects that his father's breakdown and Quinn's menacing behaviour are connected and the link is to be found in his father's memoirs, 'Shuttlecock'.

I am not sure. It's a well written history but with a background of violence that I do not like
I'm going for a horror classic: Frankenstein
His voice is incredibly evocative and very clear. Easy to understand for someone who does not speak English perfectly. A perfect diction.
Not at all.
I have read other things by Swit Graham that I found great.
