After a close friend's apparent suicide, Christopher Cornwell receives several photos the friend mailed prior to his death. Cornwell subsequently discovers by chance the presence in one of the photos of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President Kennedy. But how could Oswald be photographed in a small Hertfordshire market town when he was supposed to be living in Russia as a defector at the same time?
As Cornwell investigates the story behind the photos he unknowingly becomes the target of an investigation himself, by a shadowy agency as determined to maintain its secrets now as in 1963.
Anthony Frewin was born in London and lives in Hertfordshire. He was assistant film director to Stanley Kubrick for over 20 years. He has written three novels, London Blues, Sixty-Three Closure and Scorpion Rising.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Most highly! This is VERY compelling read, by an author/performer duo who I hope to hear much more from in the future. Fascinating twists, no massive suspensions of disbelief required...just damn good suspense and enough personality to keep the listener on their toes...or..whatever is your favourite expression!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Our victim/hero was compelling, but I liked Georges.
What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His authentic accents and attitude are very approachable and compelling.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I wouldn't say extreme, but man, I was hooked!
Any additional comments?
This is a VERY worthwhile read, and I can't recommend it high enough. ( Why not 5's across the board? The story does jump around at times, and the editing quality does leave somethings to be desired).
Notwithstanding, the creative idea, and subsequent movement of the storyline to advance the idea, are wonderful, with enough character development ( and engagement ) that the listener is pulled along in a whirlwhind of drama and suspense.
Spend the credit, and enjoy as much as I did!

Would you consider the audio edition of Sixty-Three Closure to be better than the print version?
A clever piece of fiction(?) that sets the mind on a course of inner questioning
What other book might you compare Sixty-Three Closure to, and why?
this story concept was completely new to me, and though read some time ago still has me questioning in an unsettled way.
What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Paul has a fine repertoire of voices and together with intonations one finds it hard not to recognise them all as the one voice .
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
A good storyline for a book does not always make a good film!
Any additional comments?
A Frewin writes with a lot of skill, I would like to know about any other books he has written.
