In 1707, the HMS Association was lost with no survivors. Thirty years later, an admiralty clerk is tasked with a secret mission. And 200 years after that in 1996, a dive results in a fatal accident. Ten years later, an expatriate is called home to identify a woman he only vaguely recognizes. These seemingly disconnected events come together to form a trail of deceit, murder, and greed.More

Great Goddard spoilt by poor reading
Robert Goddard is master of plot twists, and his characters are usually very well drawn. Name to a Face is no exception.
Almost anyone. Andrew has a good voice, and is able to portray various characters, both male and female, very well. Why then does he use odd, if not bizarre, inflection and emphases? His delivery drops perfectly formed words one after the other in a manner that suggests that he has no understanding of, or engagement with, the subject matter he is reading. It is both tiring and tiresome, and made a good book almost unlistenable.
I rarely return books, but this one is not worth paying for. It is read too badly.
- John Tinsley
Terrible narrator totally ruined a so so book
I have read several Goddard books and really enjoyed them. I can't tell if this book was an anomaly or if the narrator just made the book seem cheap. The narrator sounded like Ringo Starr, totally annoying.
Michael Kitchen if the best!
