Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Maloney

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This devastating work revolves around Will Bancroft, a British WWI soldier who has been executed for being an absolutist, a soldier who will not fight, and his comrade Tristan Sadler, who agrees to deliver the letters Will received during the war back to his family. The result is a deep mystery wrapped in enfolding layers of tragedy and regret. Narrator Michael Maloney provides a flawless rendition of the story. His impeccable timing, coupled with a deep, soulful English accent, makes this novel a thrilling audio experience. Maloney slowly introduces the atmospheric first few pages using authentic character voices to support the text and employs a varied pace to draw us into the mysterious plot. It all adds up to a rare combination in which text and voice create an unforgettable book. R.I.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
