Publisher's Summary

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.

Great Goddard spoilt by poor reading

What did you like best about this story?

Robert Goddard is master of plot twists, and his characters are usually very well drawn. Name to a Face is no exception.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Wincott?

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.

Any additional comments?

I rarely return books, but this one is not worth paying for. It is read too badly.

Terrible narrator totally ruined a so so book

Would you try another book from Robert Goddard and/or Andrew Wincott?

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.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not Goddard

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Wincott?

Michael Kitchen if the best!

Entertaining.

It is a really enjoyable book but utterly implausible in parts. I think you would be desperate for water having been kept underground for 4 days! To be romantically involved with a woman who had tried to kill another woman is pretty optimistic!
