The Devil of Nanking by Mo Hayder

devil_of_nanking_240x317Narrated with Josephine Bailey
From AudioFile Magazine:
This novel of wartime atrocities by the Japanese in China benefits from the narration of two accomplished narrators. Josephine Bailey is haunting as Grey, a young English woman who is obsessed with something she read as a young child about the 1937 massacre in Nanking. Grey is determined to track down the truth of what happened and goes in search of a survivor who is now a visiting professor in Japan. Simon Vance is the calm, introspective, but equally obsessed, professor, who reads from his journal of the days leading up to and subsequent to the massacre. The two threads of the plot are kept appropriately disconnected by Bailey’s narrating both sides of the dialogue between Grey and the professor. J.E.M.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
