Publisher's Summary

Harry Barnett thought he had left his military career behind, so he is startled when two figures from his past turn up on his doorstep after 50 years. An old friend has organised the reunion to end all reunions: a weekend in the Scottish castle where the ex-comrades took part in a psychological experiment many years before. They haven't seen each other since.

As they set off on their all-expenses-paid jaunt to Aberdeen, the old friends are in high spirits. But the cheerful atmosphere is quickly shattered by the apparent suicide of one of their party.

When a second death occurs, a sense of foreboding descends on the group. It appears that the past is coming back to haunt them, a past that none of them have ever spoken about. Their recollections are all frighteningly different. So what really happened?

Then when one of them uncovers an extraordinary secret, he becomes convinced that they will never leave the castle alive....

Great listen

An excellent tale, very well narrated. Even more fascinating than the previous 2 Harry Barnet books.

love the characters

Harry and Barry back together again. Unlikely heroes. The story told so well by the narrator. Thoroughly engaging.

Good Goddard

Interesting take on a previously done idea (reunion with some hiccups) but done in the brilliant way Robert Goddard always weaves historical fiction with present day action whilst remaining clear and engaging.
Not many authors can pull off such complex tales with the skill he always exhibits in his work. Also a decent length book as usual,
I look forward to the next Harry Barnett adventure. (I always imagine he might be played by Sir Michael Caine should one ever reach the screen.)

Absolutely brilliant listen

I don't know what it's like in Robert Goddard's head, but he comes up with some brilliant story lines. This one is no exception, with lost of action and twists. Not to be missed.

The worst of the three

l liked the second book the most. One star less for the continuing use by Barry of "Harry you old cock" throughout the book. Very annoying.

Brilliant

Definitely my favourite author presume this is the last of the series as Harry is in his 70s that’s a shame but plenty more to read by the same author.

I enjoyed this.

I enjoyed all three of these books. Enjoy trying to work out the plot. I love the character of Harry. So under estimated.
