  • "Excellent listen"

    Overall

    A couldn't stop listening title! I was listening to it constantly to the annoyance of my children! It was gripping, well written and narrated. I have never listened to or read any others in this series although I had watched the TV series and only bought it because it was on offer. It turned out to be a much better choice than my chosen title

    I love the Peter James series of books of which this is the latest. I enjoy the underlying continuing plot of the main character's lives. This story had the usual satisfying twists and turns based upon a well sign posted plot with a maniacal baddy.

    Whilst the story is fairly well crafted it doesn't deserve the hype or the comparison with Peter James' novels. The fear and tension of being followed was well done but it didn't stick in my mind for long after I had finished listening.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.
