It is 1866 and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of 12 local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky.

Wow! An excellent narration of an outstanding literary work. I can highly recommend this audio book and I thank Mark Meadows for his brilliant rendition of such an intensely imaginative story, with such a wonderful array of accents, cultures, and genders. 10 out of 10.
