Say something about yourself!
I bought this having bought the first in the series and really enjoyed the story and especially the supernatural elements. It kind of reminds me of Stuart MacBrides Logan McRae although not as vivid. I enjoy the character of Tony and supporting characters. The next book has not been released yet and there are some loose ends not tied up so hopefully they will be cleared I will definitely be getting the next book and would really recommend the series.
I felt the narrator was very clear and did not distract from the story.
I really enjoyed this story and it was fantastically read by Joe Dunlop. The fact that the story spanned so many years and the raw grief of the family's loss of such a young life held my interest from the start. I had a genuine interest in the characters and how their lives went especially as a result of that night. The story flowed well and interest was maintained and the conclusion was worth the wait in my opinion. I will always pick up a novel by Ms McDermid as a safe bet for a good read with many twists and skips along the way.
This is first in the Harry Hole series of books However due to translation to English I have read more recent versions before. It is refreshing to get back to basics with Harry thought and I really enjoyed it. Harry is Harry wherever he turns up and it is nice to see where he started.
Books are stand alone wonderful in my opinion. I could compare Jo Nesbo to other authors like Camilla Lackberg, Henning Mankell who are similiarly set and use really clear imagery to describe the characters and scenes in my opinion.
I have listened to many books with Sean Barrett as the reader and he is excellent in every way in my opinion bringing the story to life and really giving it meaning.
I felt an emotional attachment to the book as I do with all Harry stories and was interested in the characters and how they developed.
Really enjoyed the story and of course being with Harry again. Would highly recommend
