Best Book of the Year
We thought the book was well read and equally as good as reading the book for yourself.
We purchased both the Audio and Paperback versions of “Secrets of the Last Nazi “ and recommended it for our local book club in France where we live. We both enjoyed the story and thought, as a debut novel, it was very good.
The historical facts were accurate, and a lot of research must have been undertaken. We thought the premise of the movements of the planets as an influence on world events was an excellent concept. The action of the novel was fast and furious which made it a real page turner, you really wanted to know how the next part of the story would unfold.
The book was generally well received by the book club with members looking forward to the next adventure of Myles Munro.

Forgettable when finished, but you stay to the end
The narrator did a great job, some narrators are excruciating, this one must have been good as I did not notice him at all, which I believe is a good sign, he distinguished the characters well. The plot had a few holes, i.e. times when coincidence conveniently happen or characters hone in on the right deduction, out of a thousand of possibilities for no obvious reason. The overall major plot device stretched credulity, although depends if you are a scientist or an artist ( Zen and Art of MM etc). Popcorn, Dan Brown type stuff, which is entertaining, but ultimately forgettable.
Clever plot twist at end to counter plot device throughout as I was expecting, but never came.
Did a great job with characters, including female, which can sometimes jar when performed by a male narrator. Would listen to a book narrated by him again, maybe by this author, which I would give a second chance, albeit expecting the same.
Maybe the main character, but not the same subject or plot driver.
OK if you know what you are buying, i.e. guilty pleasure somewhat ludicrous adventure, for grownups who should know better.
