I have read a few of James McGee's books now (including this one) so when I saw three of his works on Audible I had to download!
Having already read the book I knew the story but it was still as exciting to hear now as it was the first time I read it.
His knowledge is clear from reading his books, the historical accuracy is astounding, they are intelligently written and brilliantly read by David Timson.
I can't rate his books highly enough. If you crave excitement and adventure this is a great read! 5*
