    Overall

    I listen to a lot of audible books (whilst dog walking, ironing, driving to meetings etc) and I think this is probably the best I have listened to thus far. I came to this via Sean Barrett who I find an excellent reader but this particular download is a 100% on every score. The plot is good, the characters wonderfully drawn and the reading - very slow - is absolutely spot on. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I am now at this moment going to look at other titles from the author who I have not come across before.

    Paganini - showman, womaniser, dazzling virtuoso - is one of the most fascinating characters in the history of classical music. His violin is now kept in Genoa, where it is played once every two years by the winner of an international competition. This year, an unsavoury art dealer is found dead in his hotel room the day after the concert. Clutched in his fist is a scrap of sheet music torn off a page that belongs to the competition winner. But how did the dead man get hold of it? And why?

    Overall

    Whilst you could undoubtedly enjoy each part of this trilogy as a stand alone story - listen in the correct order and you will gradually absorb the complete tapestry of Fin's life as well as pick up sub-plots, stories and clues that weave their way throughout the 3 books. Rarely have I come across a trilogy that has been so cleverly constructed. Well written and well read The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man and now The Chessmen are thoroughly absorbing and I would have thought enjoyable for men and women alike.

    Fin Macleod, now head of security on a privately owned Lewis estate, is charged with investigating a spate of illegal-game hunting taking place on the island. This mission reunites him with Whistler Macaskill - a local poacher, Fin's teenage intimate, and possessor of a long-buried secret. But when this reunion takes a violent, sinister turn and Fin puts together the fractured pieces of the past, he realizes that revealing the truth could destroy the future.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Michael Robotham books that I have read or listened to - but I would agree with a number of other reviewers that this latest story involving Joe O'Loughlin and Vincent Ruiz surpasses even the others. I could not stop listening, with the result that I have completed in just a couple of days and now can only look forward to the next audible title being launched next week!
    Because of the subject matter I have been steering clear of 'Say You're Sorry' for sometime - however when considering again recently I saw a comment from one reviewer that made me take a chance. Certainly if anyone else out there particularly dislikes the idea of young girls being kidnapped and imprisoned I would say that I found the story was handled incredibly well without any gratuitious violence or sexual titillation and was perfectly OK to listen to. Clues were so skilfully laid that I believed I could see 5 possible suspects and although 1 of my choices was indeed correct I had still not made a final choice until right up to the very end. Absolutely first rate - and fully deserves 5 stars on all fronts, Sean Barrett as always putting in a marvellous performance.

    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.

    The body of a man is found hanging in an empty house. To the Edinburgh police force this appears to be a simple suicide case. Days later another body is found. The body is hanging from an identical rope and the noose has been tied using the same knot. Then a third body is found. As Inspector McLean digs deeper he descends into a world where the lines of reality are blurred and where the most irrational answers become the only explanations.

    My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.
