One day, out of the blue, Henry Nagel receives a solicitor's letter telling him he has inherited a sumptuous apartment in St John's Wood. Divine intervention? Or his late father's love nest? Henry doesn't know, but he's glad to escape the North, where there is nothing and no one to keep him. After nearly 60 years of angry disappointment, Henry's life is about to change. But the ghosts of Henry's past are not prepared to disappear without a struggle....

This book drew me into it as it went along. I found the characters engaging and the writing was full of wry Jewish humour. (You don't need to be Jewish to appreciate this) Paul Matthew read it exceptionally well with an easy throw away style. He really brought the characters to life in a way that, I suspect, I might have missed had I merely read it myself. Well worth the read / listen.
