Haunting, masterfully written, and utterly mesmerizing in its nuance, The Silver Swan fully lives up to the promise of Christine Falls and firmly establishes Benjamin Black (aka John Banville) among the greatest of crime writers.
Listen to Christine Falls.

A great sequel!
Two points regarding "Christine Falls" and "The Silver Swan":
1) Benjamin Black is a fabulous writer who knows too well the weakness of the human condition. Those who have read Dennis Lehayne ("Mystic River", etc.) will love this series. Highly recommended!
2) Why doesn't Timothy Dalton narrate more audiobooks?! He is simply outstanding.

Utterly compelling and brilliantly read
The richness of Benjamin Black's prose coupled with the emotive reading by Timothy Dalton made for an absolutely compelling listen. This is the kind of literary mystery book I love, laden with atmosphere and filled with arresting descriptions and deeply-drawn characters. I actually re-listened to many parts of this book just to hear the brilliant turns of phrase that Mr. Black has conjured from a seemingly deep well of creativity.
