Unusual 1930s style mystery
Strip away everything not involving Fintan Dunne and you are left with a 1930s detective story in the fashion of Dashiell Hammett. When you add in the other story lines that crop up from time to time the result is an audio book that starts slowly and is a little difficult to follow. The other story lines involve eugenics, the pseudoscience that the Nazis used to justify genetic cleansing and the holocaust. The book improves as the several story lines come together and the ending is satisfying.

Surprisingly Good Listen
Against my typically better judgement, I went ahead and selected Hour of the Cat even though there was only one review done to date. How nice to be do pleasantly surprised! The characters were interesting and the multiple plots well crafted. Narration was very good also. (My only narration complaint was I just didn't like the sound of the voice he assigned the detective - shoulda been more like Bogart than Damon Runyon. :=) I really enjoy the 1930s film noire style and also WW II Nazi thrillers - this one combines them both very well! Well done!!!
