A decent story but a ridiculously purple vocal performance. The plot was decent and my wife is a big fan of the author.

On New Year’s Day, a wealthy family is found slaughtered inside their exclusive gated community in north London, their youngest child stolen away. The murder weapon is a gun for stunning cattle, leading Detective Max Wolfe to a dusty corner of Scotland Yard’s Black Museum devoted to a killer who thirty years ago was known as the Slaughter Man. But the Slaughter Man is now old and dying. Can he really be back in the game?

This was a great, twisted and sinister whodunit. The cockney narration added flavour.

I found the playback speed was hard to fix. I think that the original recording has been sped up. You can only halve the speed in the app, which was then too slow.

Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

A classic, but the recording quality was atrocious. 8 bit mono or something, and very off putting.
