Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes. I've read/ listened to seven books written by this author. Simon Vance is one of my favorite performers; and was the reason that I started to listen to Chris Ewan.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The story moved along very well; and it was not too predictable. I was a little disappointed in the the ending. I feel that most authors write a great book; but few know how to gracefully and eloquently close. All of Chris Ewan's "Good Thief Guides" ended in a satisfying way; and I would have preferred a different ending to this one. Having said that, I don't want to give the impression that the book is, in any way, flawed. It's certainly not! It held my interest and developed characters very well.
Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have yet to listen to a sub par performance by this narrator. His "American" male character voice in DEAD LINE was a little reminiscent of the American character voice of all of the Patrick O'Brian Jack Aubry books. I found it amusing to think that a US Navy Captain from 1812 was time-transported to modern day Provence..
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I will certainly look for more books by Chris Ewan; and listen to them with enthusiasm..

Excellent narrator, well written, but didn't go anywhere. Very disappointed in how the plot progressed.
