Mystery & Suspense • 11.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

In a story with roots in a real case, a bank robbery and murder in Tokyo in 1948 have links to biological weapons testing during WWII. David Peace loves words. His writing often takes on a rhythmic poetic quality, and the narrators give the events of the novel the weight of emotion—whether they're speaking with the lyrical voices of dead robbery victims or the bureaucratic tone of official documents. The multiple narrators help sort out the many points of view Peace uses to tell his story. The novel bogs down at points, but the first-rate reading makes this an audiobook experience that improves on the text. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
