Not many faults with this reading.
Only a couple of mistakes in the text jarred on me, but only because I know and love the book so well.

He has tried to end his life twice. Once Archie brought him back. Now I have done the same. Unbelievably tense and brilliant, full of plot twists and drama, ending to Lymond!

I don't really like her but may be being too harsh. Dorothy Dunnett. And of course it makes the conclusion of the book all the more powerful. Those who do like the series will find this a magnificent conclusion.
