Totally astonishing listen

Just proves that if you’re determined enough you can do anything you choose and Paul never gave up.

I thoroughly recommend this.

Astonishing series.
I was hooked and binged all ten episodes.
Makes you very scared of the so called justice system.
This duo are brilliant
Added; I was so appalled at the miscarriage of justice involved after hearing this podcast that I researched into the case.
You left out two glaring omissions.
David had an extra 145 miles of his journey through Argyll unaccounted for, based on his fuel consumption and when he arrived at the Police station that night the cuts on his hands had been covered in make up.
Why? Did you ask him?

This book is superb. It’s a very honest insight into a job that is brutal and horrific, but told here in a way that will make you understand the world it encompasses instead of shying away from it.
Many famous cases are discussed and you get to see the part of it not spoken about in the media.
Its gripping and beautifully told by the author, as only the author himself, could do it the justice it deserves.
There’s nothing squeamish, so don’t let that stop you from listening, this book will take you on so many journeys you’ll be so glad you did and you will learn so much in the process.
You’ll carry it with you a long time afterwards.
Simply perfect.
Now off to YouTube to watch as many of this man’s lectures as I can find. I feel like I’ve lost a friend.

The master story writer at his very finest.

I adore Edward Rutherfurd’s books. He teaches you history in such a beautiful way, you listen to his stories without realising you’re actually learning.
His books are a series of novellas that chronologically follow families through the ages, each chapter is weaved into a significant historical period and you live it through each of the character’s eyes and feelings.
I get so excited each time I see a title has been added, as I check all the time.
They are huge tomes, but easily digested into chapters that are stories all of their own and you become completely absorbed.
I cannot recommend enough.
You’ll be glad you bought this and all of his books.

The book is well written but has far too many American words. Apparently there are apartments, blocks and sidewalks in the East End of London. If you can get past that then it’s very good. I’d recommend reading it yourself though. The narrator spoils the story tremendously. He’s Australian and all his East End voices are variations of an Australian accent. He makes a lot of mistakes too. I lost count of how many times he mispronounced names and words. Silly mistakes like tears (as in crying) in the fabric as opposed to tears (rips).
By two thirds in I was wishing he’d hurry up and finish.
Great book. Appalling narration.

Very good

It surpasses everything.
