Publisher's Summary

It is 1856. When three men are murdered in Cornwall, Amos Hawke, a Cornish detective working from London's Scotland Yard, is sent to investigate. He finds lodgings with one of the murdered men's wives - and her daughter, Talwyn. But while Amos's relationship with Talwyn gets off to a bad start, she is to prove crucial in helping him bring her father's killers to justice.
A wonderful tale from a master storyteller, Though the Heavens May Fall has its heart and soul in the lore and landscape of Cornwall.

appalling narrator

story is average historical romance: fine to pass the time while doing something else. Narrator, however, is so grating that I may abandon this. As other readers have said, he reads in a kind of patronising chant (i never knew a chanting voice could be patronising,...but it can!) Also, the cornish accent slides away into a kind of irish american. That would be bearable, were it not for the 'chanting', which ruins any possibility of enjoying, rather than enduring, this book.
