This is a lovely story beautifully read. Its quite complex and moving with a delightfully rich combination of characters and full of twists and turns. I wouldn't call it a thriller, more of an intriguing mystery spanning from the activities of the French resistance to the present day and the resulting effects for three families. This is so much more than an account of a war crimes trial. Father Anselm is a warm character that I quickly grew to like and I'm pleased to see that he features in the next William Brodrick book which is now on my wishlist. I've listened to The Sixth Lamentation once and am listening again to pick up on a few nuances I missed first time round. Highly recommended.

Good story (slow reading)
This is a good story I agree with what the other reviewers have said but the reading is so very slow; every piece of punctuation is noticable like no other book that I've listened to, the effect is that the narrator dampens any tension which builds up. The ponderous delivery grated on me but others may like this style.
