Publisher's Summary

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'.

Read by James Wilby.

    "The tracks left in us the lives of others"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I am not sure. It's a well written history but with a background of violence that I do not like


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going for a horror classic: Frankenstein


    What about James Wilby’s performance did you like?

    His voice is incredibly evocative and very clear. Easy to understand for someone who does not speak English perfectly. A perfect diction.


    Did Shuttlecock inspire you to do anything?

    Not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read other things by Swit Graham that I found great.
