An old recording of taut thriller, and both are as fresh and exciting as they can be or any reader would want them to be. It's an odd mix of boys own adventure with a dark streak of Bond and Bourne and yet it predates both.

Loud and Proud and with something to say

Subtle funny, warm and at times ridiculous - a sitcom with a difference and that difference is the script, it’s brilliant, the perfect listen for a Sunday afternoon or when you’re under the weather and need some gentle cheer

I remember this when t was one, and it really was un-missable, having all the stories (if you buy them all is just great) is great binge listening.

Well researched, in-depth and honest, its odd how you can hate Byron for what he did and yet still admire what he was, but it even more so admire the women who, on the whole, survived him. I real insight into the complex nature of Byron by looking at those he touched...as it were.

An incredible tale of one mans journey but its more than just vengeance its a story through the tail end of the Raj and the inequities of Empire - a real eye opener when it comes to propaganda and cover ups. Well written and well read, very engaging tale.

If you're a fan of Will's early work then this will appeal greatly, funny with plenty or sordid edge but also candid and darkly witty, And being read by the author makes it a real treat, read with true relish.

A great overview with some some fantastic highlighted characters. Victoriana, pre and post war London being the main areas covered. Some of the stories are truly heartbreaking whilst others are completely bizarre, well worth a listen.

Very well read and even well written but I came away thinking, did I actually hear anything I didn’t already know? All the usual ground was covered with the same characters, but nothing new seemed to be deduced. Perhaps the ideal book for the casual history buff. I think the title is a little off as at least a third of the events occurred in 1665 but I doubt the author had much to do with that, on the whole a good listen.

Bill and the great cast never fail in this great series, sly humorous and just enough intrigue
