As the Crow Flies
- By: Jeffrey Archer
- Narrated by: John Lee
- Length: 20 hrs and 42 mins
Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps - his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'. Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies.

Enthralling story across the decades
Enthralled with all the characters . Loved the story telling of each in periods. Maybe just a little too dramatic with plane hold ups but could not stop listen. Well done.
