Good stories are made up of ‘grey’ characters, i.e. partly good/partly bad. This book is full of them.

I’m sure collaborating with James Patterson pays the bills but ‘go it alone’ I’d say, certainly if this novel is anything to go by/

Gravitas that is well examined

A thought provoking look at one of the key historical events of the twentieth century assisted by an excellent narrator.

Brings back a lot of memories from a dramatic time in sports history. There aren't a lot of heroes in this story but it's well worth listening to.

I first read Fatherland 25 years ago but had forgotten most of the story. Well worth listening to again though. The story is imaginative (and horrifying), the plotting is excellent and the pace picks up slowly but surely as the story progresses aided by Michael Jayston's brilliant narration. I changed the pace of the audio to 1.25 times normal speed towards the end and it really adds to the growing tension and menace of the final chapters.
