Sheltered by the Catholic church for over 40 years, Pierre Brossard suddenly finds himself on the run when a new police investigation is opened.

Fast paced, absorbing listening!

Where does The Statement rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Audiobooks have to grab and keep my interest start to finish when I am driving long distances. The Statement was one of the best at starting a fast paced story and continuing the ride with an absorbing story. The main character was a challenge but the author creates a backstory that at once sets him up as a villain but also makes him a multi-dimentional man so that when he races ahead of his fate, the reader understand his vulnerability.

What other book might you compare The Statement to and why?

In general, I listen to real-life adventure stories and biographies. This story is compelling and compares to a true story in its pace and detail.

Have you listened to any of James D'Arcy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. However, he did a great job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The wife who comes back to her little apartment and finds her husband waiting for her made me cringe for her. She loathes him and all he's done and fears for the little dog she loves, She knows he is capable of demanding something of her and hurting her little Bobby if she doesn't comply.

Any additional comments?

After I listened to the book, I came across the movie version and was pleasantly surprised at how closely the plot followed the book.

Slow thriller

I love Brian Moore and this story is a good one brining out themes of forgiveness, complicity and faith in s story of a hunt for an individual convicted of crimes against humanity
