I enjoyed the world that the protagonist lives in, but thought the story it self was a tad on the weak side. I was still intersted all the way through, but what REALLY kept me coming back was the romanticism of the times and what it would be like to write for radio with a willing cast and so many wonderful taboos to break!

This novel presents a long, interesting tale of radio in the 40s. I put emphasis on the long as it seems to just go on and on. In fact, when the killer is revealed in the end, I had to ask myself "Who?" There were so many characters going in and out that I had forgotten many of them.

Then the author ends with a few pages, taking place 30 years later, in which he wraps up some loose ends. Some may think this great writing, I saw it as poor plot development. I also found the lead female protagonist character to be unbelievable.
