The best part of this story was the amazing, creative swearing attributed to the late 1800s. I wonder if the author created it or used references from period literature to make it authentic. Fun, in any case.
This is a 9-hour morality play whose message is that "Greed corrupts." I felt like the story went on too long. The protagonists made too many unrealistic choices, and just when the story should've been winding down, yet another layer of evil was revealed. By the end I was exhausted.
The performance, however, was excellent.

If this had been the first Crouch book I had read I think I would be singing praises. Do not get me wrong it has a great plot and interesting characters but I kept waiting for the supernatural or bizarre to happen. My bad. It is worth reading. Good mystery and a few plot twists.

I don't know what I was expecting... Supernatural? Monsters? Not sure. What I got was two interwoven stories with well rounded characters and enough interest to fill three novels. No spoilers here , it's just exceptional. Atmospheric, immersive. Listen somewhere warm.

After Dark Matter, and the Wayward Pines Trilogy Blake has set the bar very high indeed. in my view this is a great story, complex, twisting, and interlinking well. but... it's still not his best work. but it's still very welcome in my collection. thanks Blake
