'The island in question is Guernsey, during the German occupation in the Second World War, and the book itself is part thriller, part love story, and wholly engrossing on the subject of occupation and its moral choices. Who can be confident today how he or she would have behaved under such circumstances?' Antonia Fraser, Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph 'How close is the relationship between menace and protection, how powerful the seduction of treachery and how intense the relationships forged in the crucible of a small island are vividly demonstrated by Binding...a novel of rewarding subtlety and insight into the best and worst of human nature' Jane Shilling, The Times 'Tim Binding is a very clever writer...As a murder- mystery, this is immensely readable. But it is much more than that...a thought-provoking study of men and women in a time of madness' Simon Linnell, Daily Telegraph 'Binding captures the essence of life under occupation with fine description of character and a taut plot...There are heart-stopping twists and turns in the way in which people behave and react...This is high-class fiction: tense, compassionate, surprising and moving' Catherine Pepinster, Independent on Sunday

Binding gives a realistic atmosphere to this story about WWII on the remote Channel Islands (the only place in Britain inhabited by the Germans). Narrator Sean Barrett perfectly recreates the wartime sound of movies and newsreels. The story is long, detailed and graphically unpleasant, qualities best captured by Barrett's unemotional presentation. The murder of a popular local woman throws together a wide array of suspects who differ economically, culturally, and ethnically. All are rendered realistically. Barrett also keeps the listener interested in some dry and detailed text by delivering a compelling presentation. An excellent choice for military buffs or for those who enjoy observing the behavior of people under adverse or stressful conditions.
