Commissar Ciaphas Cain is a renowned and revered hero of the Imperium, a man who has faced and survived some of the vilest creatures the universe can throw at him. But when he is sent to a river-world, he must deal with a dangerous enemy, an enemy whose true identity remains unknown. As his vessel traverses the straits of the planet, Cain must uncover the face of this new foe so that he can understand and escape it. Caught in the enemy crossfire, the commissar has no place to run, and his nerve will be tested to the very limits.
Fans of Caiphas will love this audio book as not only can they put a voice to the name but the character tongue in cheek storytelling is brought to the fore in such a wonderfully dramatic manner that this will fast become a firm fan favourite. Add to this the wonderful scripting of Sandy Mitchell, serious vocal talent from Toby Longworth and the listener is in for a real treat. Back that up with the hustle and bustle of real life and the ability to start and stop as the journey demands and its high value entertainment for the modern world. My only grumble is that there wasn’t enough Jürgen. Come on Sandy, he deserves a tale (or even a short story) all to himself.
