Not her best

I will first of say, I have loved all Gill Pauls books. I love the fact that she bases the plot on facts. However, I found this story was spoilt by the narrator using the wrong accents for Russian people. When I first started listening I thought the first soldier was from Liverpool with his scouse accent. But then some one else came along with an Irish accent then a Yorkshire accent. It just didn’t sound right. The overall story was great and did keep me on tender hooks wondering how things were going to turn out.
As previously Gill will use two story lines of past and present and bring them together at the end. This one I did feel was a bit far fetched and spoilt the ending. I still love her books though and will be the first the listen to her next one.
