Publisher's Summary

It is 1856. When three men are murdered in Cornwall, Amos Hawke, a Cornish detective working from London's Scotland Yard, is sent to investigate. He finds lodgings with one of the murdered men's wives - and her daughter, Talwyn. But while Amos's relationship with Talwyn gets off to a bad start, she is to prove crucial in helping him bring her father's killers to justice.

A wonderful tale from a master storyteller, Though the Heavens May Fall has its heart and soul in the lore and landscape of Cornwall.

    Story
    "appalling narrator"

    story is average historical romance: fine to pass the time while doing something else. Narrator, however, is so grating that I may abandon this. As other readers have said, he reads in a kind of patronising chant (i never knew a chanting voice could be patronising,...but it can!) Also, the cornish accent slides away into a kind of irish american. That would be bearable, were it not for the 'chanting', which ruins any possibility of enjoying, rather than enduring, this book.

    "A lovely story"

    A gentle detective story, with a touch of romance. Well narrated, with good strong characters.

    "Sing song reader"

    I'm going to buy this book because after I got halfway I could no longer bear the sound of the reader. He has an annoying voice that finishes words or phrases on a high note, like an endless Jeremy Clarkson. I shall have a listen to the author's other books because another reader has been employed.
    I liked the book [so far] but enough is enough

    Story
    "Its all in the reading"

    I was not particularly impressed with the quality of the writing, but more often than not I have found I was not really listening to the story, just to Andrew Wincot's reading. The reader is, to my ear dreadful. He pauses in the oddest places, and adds a considerable 'sing song' quality to his reading; reminiscent of people speaking over the tannoy system in the supermarket or at the station. My major dislike is the upward, questioning lilt at the end of every sentence. Ughhhhh. I have found this reader so irritating that i have not been able to listen to the end of the book

    Story
    "Not brilliant by any stretch of the imagination"

    Quite a good plot but the predictability of the story and the author's style of writing gave it a childish feel. The story wasn't helped by the narrator's awful Cornish accent which slipped from Irish to American and back again. I got this a buy one get one free and the book certainly did not live up to its editorial summary.
