Publisher's Summary

Off the coast of New England, a trawler tangles its nets on wreckage from 60 years ago – a B17 “flying fortress”, perfectly preserved and containing the final and most terrifying secret of WWII. When freelance photographer Chris Roland enters the sunken plane, he finds something that changes all he knows about the end of the war – and how desperately close it came to being the end of everything. Half a century earlier, Hitler gambled it all on a last throw of the dice. Now it seems that Chris is one of the very few to know about it – and this knowledge might just end up killing him.

Couldn't wait for the next chapter..

Where does A Thousand Suns rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a great listen but not the absolute best I have ever listened to - about 6/10 in terms of other listens

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Thousand Suns?

The story has twists and turns going from present day back to 1945 and before. It is complex and has interwoven stories but I didn't find it difficult to follow. There was no one best moment - I just found it all gripping. Perhaps the most memorable was the ending which I found very sad.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was well-paced and with good characterisation. My only concern was the (all too often) inability to 'do' the cockney accent which sounded like a cross between Dick van Dyke (in Mary Poppins) and an Australian.

Any additional comments?

I will certainly look out for other books by this author - but perhaps give the narrator a wider berth.
