    Story
    "Captivating story read with great style."

    Like all Goddard's stories this had me hooked straight away and I didn't want to turn it off. Enough detail to put you in the place, especially as I have lived in Edith Weston and Stamford. Kitchen has a certain style in reading that appeals to me greatly. Overall a fantastic listen even though it is my second time! What else can I say there is a good chance I will return to it again along with all of his other books.

    "Unusual"

    I wasn't quite sure what to make of this book even though I felt it was reasonably well written. It seemed to start out as a romance, then ventured into the paranormal and finally morphed into a political mystery. I've given it four stars as, although I wouldn't necessary choose to read it and have never before read any of Robert Goddard's novels, I would recommend listening to Michael Kitchen read it, because as usual, he gives the characters dimension.

    Story
    "Not Goddard's best but still a good read"

    This one is a little more fantastical and less character driven than other of Goddard's intricate plotted stories. But Michael Kitchen's narration always elevates any material and so it was a very enjoyable journey.

    Story
    "Starts slow"

    I understand this was written in 1999 and does seem to have a different style to his later books.
    It starts with Tony writing or talking to his dead wife. Tony is grieving, accepting the coroners decision and going to stay with his best friend and sister in law. Having arrived there, still overwhelmed by his grief, the world around him begins to filter in to his awareness. He becomes interested in best friends' new house and stats to learn it's history.
    In keeping with Tony's numbing grief and ruminations this was a very very slow transition through his 'delusions' to an understanding that something is really very odd.
    Some questions remain unanswered, and maybe Tony himself should not be alive to tell the story.
    Be prepared to be patient with this story. It was for me, an interesting exploration both in style and plot development.
