Brilliant interwoven characters and depiction of Victorian England. Deals with loss, revenge & how decisions effect those around us, often in unplanned ways. Narration very good (ie use of accents to distinguish characters) & well paced which is important in a production so long.

No matter what your opinion on Archer personally, he writes a cracking page turner. This kept me enthralled for hours. The reading quality was excellent as well ie paced & good command of various accents (Cockney, upper class English, Scottish etc)
