Another great book, very well read

How does the author keep coming up with such gripping and original plots? I enjoyed this Bolitho book as much as any of the seven others i have listened to, and did not find any problem with the sound quality although I am quite particular about such details; perhaps it has been re-recorded to put right any previous problem?

Let down by poor audio

Sounds like it was ripped from audio cassettes, old ones at that rather then the original master recording
