Everything about this book was top rate. The writing was clever, very well put together, and then coupled with top rate narration. Very highly recommend. Goddard is outstanding at telling a tale. A can't fail use of a credit. Have fun.
There were plenty of plot twists...in fact, too many. Towards the end all of the juking and jiving kinda got annoying. It was almost like the author wrote most of the book then decided he needed to throw in a bunch of twists and turns as an afterthought.
This wasn't a wasted credit, just not in the "riveting" or "can't put down" category.
I really enjoyed my first Goddard read, "Long Time Coming," and so had high expectations for this book, but the story was a bit too contrived and the narration was poor -- not well-paced or nuanced.
Slow, somewhat flat.
Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
Gerald Doyle is a top reader and Godddard a top writer. It is a good story.
While I as an Aussie, may think the death of Kennedy was about something a little different, who is to say the 'great train robbery' did not finance in some way the death of a maybe good President of the US? I do remember the day. I also remember the great train robbery. This is fiction. Its a good tale well told.

Yes, it was interesting, just the right amount of characters and the plot really moved along.
In quite a few places. There was also a few shocking moments and twists in plot.
The Japanese characters.
I was interested all the way through. Probably a laugh here and there.
I've read many of his by now and, although they can seem convoluted and a bit far-fetched, I have always continued to the end. Perhaps at this point, I'm enjoying his writing a bit less or maybe this one was more far-fetched than others....I really can't say. He does deliver on a good story each time, despite everything.
"A good story ruined by poor reading"
Yes to Robert Goddard but definitely not if read by Gerard Doyle. Almost total lack of expression- he might as well read the telephone directory!
I couldn't say what was the most memorable moment because in the end I just gave up.
Can't say - see above.
I would have saved my time and money if you gave the facility to hear a sample in The same way that I can for my Kindle. Robert Goddard is a great author, but the narrator ruined the book.
"A good book"
Of course. This was a good story and in spite of a criticism about the reading, I felt it was pretty well read.
No particular one stood out. There were several memorable moments as you'd expect in a Robert Goddard story.
Don't think so.
Yes but I only have time to read a little in bed before I fall asleep.
