A note to audio-book (CD) borrowers: I borrowed the CD set which states it is 8 discs. Upon inserting the 8th disc, the narrator informed me it was disc 9. Sure enough, there was a noticeable gap in the story. I borrowed a print copy to verify this comment before placing it here. If you prefer CD format, perhaps borrow the print copy as well to cover the gap.
It is a good story by a great new author. The narrator uses a strong Aussie accent which may take a little time to become accustomed to.
