This production was so dry and witless that I gave up after about two hours. The plot was hard to follow and the characters were hard to care about.

This is another entry in wonderful Alex Troy series. Lawton's revival of the world of England from the late '30s to the early '60s is among the most faithful I have read. Each novel covers a span of that time and contains snippets of actual modified history, lending the stories a compellingly fresh quality.
If you aren't familiar with London or English history during those years or are unfamiliar with English slang, some parts of this novel may be somewhat difficult. The writing is first-rate and the characterization, while somewhat more colorful than real life, is interesting and vivid.
The reader, Sara Coward, is wonderful. Her steady, controlled performance makes this book a joy to listen to.
I highly recommend this book to Anglophiles, particularly those with an interest mid-century history.
