i found this book well written and well constructed. Craig Russell has been a good find,as in all his books so far he hasn't let me down. i must be honest and say i prefer the Flavel series over the Glasgow but having said that both are very good. he is definitely on my favourite author list. Sean Barrett as narrator is excellent.
hi, i find craig russel favel series narrated by sean barrett absolutely riveting. they are so different to the run of the mill crime stories where the detective has drinking problem and/or argues with seniors.. in these books favel is an experience officer who became a policeman because of an unfortunatl murder of a girlfriend while he was a student of history. he changes his focus from history to police work , specilising in particularly strange and sometime gory (but explain in a pleasant way without colourful language) murders . there is none of the 'f' and 'c' language that some authors think is necessary . the only time flavel utters an explitive is when any normal person would. i wish they were more of these books with sean barrett narrating.
