Narrator Steve West superbly delivers Masello's latest historical imaginings. Here he takes on an alternate WWI in which H.G. Wells is sent to the trenches to research the validity of an alleged miracle. Wells is overwhelmed by the horrors surrounding him both above ground--mustard gas, phosgene, operations performed without anesthesia--and underground--where deserters (ghouls) from all armies scavenge from the battlefield dead. West believably creates everyone from foot soldiers to Winston Churchill, from Satan worshipper Aleister Crowley to diabolical German spies, as well as anti-German locals; Wells's adoring wife, Jane; and his suffragette mistress, Rebecca West. With ghosts to lead the way, Wells and West attempt to foil a plot by occultists to destroy British lives and morale. Fascinating listening.
