This was my first Andrew Hunter novel and I enjoyed it . The plot had a few twists which kept me guessing to the end , but what was behind it all was too unfeasible for me . That said I would try another one of the series and make my mind up
The narrator was fine and handled the different characters well not my favourite but ok

I had this book for a while before I listened to it and had even started it a few times . When I finally did listen to it I enjoyed it immensely so much so I almost missed it . The story is set at the time of the plague and the author has the characters personalities thinking and reacting how they would have done at that time . I would recommend this book and despite its length I could and would have listened longer .
