Publisher's Summary

After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the days, then the hours, then the seconds until his release tick away, he can feel a storm building. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in apparently adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr. Wednesday, claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god, and the king of America.

Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But they are being pursued by someone with whom Shadow must make his peace.... Disturbing, gripping, and profoundly strange, Neil Gaiman's epic new novel sees him on the road to finding the soul of America.

    "Pale Shadow"

    I'm afraid this book never really captured me and I finished it but without any enthusiasm. The problem for me was that I didn't particularly care or believe in the characters. Shadow, the central character was narrated in a rather flat tone, which mirrored his personality. I have read the excellent First Law series, which has humour and a rich array of complex characters, that made me think I might like fantasy in general, but unfortunately not.

    "AMAZING"

    couldn't stop listening, was hooked from the start, loved it so much I bought an audio pillow so I could listen as I fell asleep.
    George Guidall was perfect as the narrator.

    "Brilliant from start to finish "

    Gaiman is a modern master and this is some of his finest work. The performance is one of the best Audible records I've heard, if not the best. Can't recommend it enough.
