Another fantastic book in the Ian Rutledge series! And the narration by Mr. Prebble was excellent. His often times brooding voice totally captures Rutledge. His range of female voices of course is not as good as the male ones but that does not detract. The story was gripping from beginning to end! If you haven't read or listened to the Ian Rutledge series, you have missed out!!!

I guess I didn't like this story as much as I wanted to. It is a good story of deception and murder. I can't say exactly why I came to dislike the story, but I did.
This story is simple yet complicated. It's about vengeance, old grievances, and secrets. The story begins with a group of scared soldiers making a promise to each other before returning to the front during the First World War. They promise to meet in Paris with their motor cars in one year if they survive. Murder and attempted murder begins with that reunion and the focus move from France to England, and Scotland Yard's Inspector Ian Rutledge is the investigator.
I've enjoyed listening to the Inspector Rutledge stories but this one lost my initial interest. These stories tend to have a few threads that spool out in a slow methodical way.
Mr. Simon Prebble performed the narration in his usual excellent way.
