    Story

    I loved listening to this book. I loved it so much that as soon as I finished it I downloaded another Vera story and preordered the new book that comes out in May. The narrator was excellent and I kept visualising Brenda Blethyn who I now realise plays the part of Vera excellently and portrays the author's character to a T. A very good listen.

    Story

    I have listened to all three books in this series and I can honestly say that you can see an improvement in each of these books. The story line was excellent, the narration was excellent and the continuity of characters was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this series. Keep it up Mr Oswald.

    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.

    This was an excellent story and was well read. There is not as much of the light relief that you get from the characters in the Logan McCrae books. I wonder if our Stuart has been on an NLP course recently?

    A heart-stopping crime thriller from the author of three consecutive No. 1 bestsellers, including Birthdays for the Dead and the DI Logan McRae series. He's back... Eight years ago, 'The Inside Man' murdered four women and left three more in critical condition - all of them with their stomachs slit open and a plastic doll stitched inside. And then the killer just ... disappeared. Ash Henderson was a Detective Inspector on the initial investigation, but a lot can change in eight years.

    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.
