Would you listen to The Sun Is God again? Why?
I have listened to his two trilogies more than once already. I always find something new in a second listen if the book is well written.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sun Is God?
Loved the twist in heroics near the end. No spoilers from me, just read it.
Any additional comments?
Of course this book sent me on a research binge to try to get a hint at what was or wasn't true, and what might have really happened. I can see how the sketchy clues in the true story must have fired McKinty's estimable imagination, and I'm so glad it did. Still one of my very favorite authors.

This is a work of historical fiction about a relatively minor episode in the history of New Guinea, although it does provide a glimpse of what German colonialism was like in 1906. I've read all McKinty's mysteries, and this novel is quite different. Although I thought his prose was often as fine as usual, the story itself isn't all that exciting. Some of the characters were interesting, although I couldn't tell how much of their personalities were figments of McKinty's imagination. I love listening to Gerard Doyle, so between his narration and McKinty's writing, I found the book enjoyable. Thankfully, it wasn't too long.
