Fascinating Thriller

This grabs you from the beginning interweaving the past of 'The Swimmer' with the present of his daughter Klara. It is fast-paced and full of action. I felt the ending was a bit ho-hum but this didn't affect my overall enjoyment.
Initially i found the male narrator hard to listen to - but as his character reveals itself the narration does seem more appropriate but I would strongly suggest listening to the sample, as I am sure not all would enjoy his narration.
