Publisher's Summary

Geoffrey Staddon turned his back on the best things in his life. He turned his back on the beautiful house Clouds Frome, his finest achievement as an architect. He turned his back on the woman he loved, Consuela Caswell, and who loved him in return.

Twelve years later, amidst the tatters of his career and marriage, he is forced to contemplate the remorse and shame of his betrayal. But when he reads that Consuela has been charged with murder, he knows instinctively that she cannot be guilty. And when she sends her own daughter to him, pleading for help, Geoffrey cannot ignore the dangerous lure of the past any longer. He must return to Clouds Frome and face the dark secret it holds.

    "The Ultimate Robert Goddard"

    This, my favourite book of all time has finally been released. And the narration as good as the original by Paul Shelley.
    A work of art on every level.

    Story
    "Take No zfarewell by Robert Goddard"

    This is an excellent book written by an obviously educated person.
    The development of the plot always surprises and these surprises continue right up to the last page, I found it a fascinating listen, one of my best purchases. The plot is so original, so imaginative yet so believable.

    Story
    "More Twists than DNA"
    What made the experience of listening to Take No Farewell the most enjoyable?

    The narrator sounds like the central character ought to speak and think; and voice is not irritating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great number of twists and best of all , a plausibility.


    What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Time! I can listen whilst doing other things.


    Any additional comments?

    Goddard's imagination does not seem to have faded with time, in the way that some other great authors have become formulaic.

    Any additional comments?

    I cannot agree with the other reviewers. Goddard has written some excellent tales but this is not one of them. The main protaganist is a pompous, uninspiring, insipid idiot. Any misfortune is self inflicted, bad luck deserved and frankly he is almost impossible to warm to. I just kept listening to see what idiotic reaction he has to the turn of events. Frankly the denouement was a relief. Try Pale Battlions instead. 5 stars so the review doesn't get buried.
