    Story

    I found this book absolutely gripping, it drew me into the atmosphere and the story so completely that on occasions I had to leave it and do something else as I was so distressed by a turn of events, and what I knew would happen. Beautifully written, the characters are so believable and the story, continues the struggle between the Peasants, the Church and the Lords from the first book in the series (The Pillars of the Earth), is certainly thought provoking.
    Excellent narration by John Lee.

But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

    With an introduction read by Max Hastings. Bomber Command's offensive against the cities of Germany was one of the epic campaigns of the Second World War. More than 56,000 British and Commonwealth aircrew and 600,000 Germans died in the course of the RAF's attempt to win the war by bombing. The struggle began in 1939 with a few score primitive Whitleys, Hampdens and Wellingtons, and ended six years later with 1,600 Lancasters, Halifaxes, and Mosquitoes razing whole cities in a single night.
