    Description

    The first in a compelling new crime series from Booker Prize-winning author John Banville, writing as Benjamin Black.

    Quirke's pathology department, set deep beneath the city, is his own gloomy realm: always quiet, always night, and always under his control. Until late one evening after a party he stumbles across a body that should not be there - and his brother-in-law falsifying the corpse's cause of death.

    This is the first time Quirke has encountered Christine Falls, but the investigation he decides to lead into the way she lived and died uncovers a dark secret at the heart of Dublin's high Catholic network; one with the power to shake his own family and everything he holds dear.

    Commentaires

    "A superb stylist . . . His control and pacing cannot be faulted, and the final outcome is almost unbearably moving . . .You're in for a treat." ( Michael Dibdin, Guardian)
    "Succeeds sensationally . . . An absorbing plot, beguiling characters and evocative settings . . . His pacing is impeccable." ( Marcel Berlins, The Times)

    Timothy Dalton's great performace

    I was looking for an audibook narrated by Timothy Dalton and I didn't care what is it about. English isn't my native language, but I enjoyed it very much. I looking forward to next part. Timothy Dalton performed it really great.

    Good introduction to audible books

    Where does Christine Falls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First audible book ever downloaded so difficult to compare.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Enough suspense to keep listening in one breath

    What about Timothy Dalton’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Dalton's voice was the main reason for choosing the book. I think the narrator has a great voice and I was not deceived. And much better listening to Dalton's reading a good book than watching him perform well in some crappy B films scrips. What I particularly like is the depth and range of tone, compared to some of the samples of other narrators I am listening to now which are by comparison so flat.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The changing relation between father and daughter

    Any additional comments?

    I only wish there were more good books narrated by Mr. Dalton
