  • "An absolute must!"

    Story

    This book is beyond excellent it is a true work of literature. The bombed out landscape and the wave of crime hitting ordinary Londoners who are trying to survive as best they can on rations serve as a metaphor for mental desolation and despair. The author explores three points of view, the killer, the victim and the detective - they are all fighting inner demons and trying to work out what the point of existence really is. The prevailing cynicism is offset by the young female police officer who is looking to the future and presages a better life to come - perhaps. This is a book which really makes you think and question certainties; it is a relatively short in length but very wide in the intellectual challenge it will give you. The narrator is splendid and his voice is perfect for this tale, I cannot praise him enough. Daniel Weyman makes an extremely moving tribute to Sian Busby at the end of the book which will no doubt give you an added insight into the content of the book.

    On a damp July morning in 1946, two schoolboys find a woman's body in a bomb site in north London. The woman is identified as Lillian Frobisher, a wife and mother who lived in a war-damaged terrace a few streets away. The police assume that Lil must have been the victim of a vicious sexual assault; but the autopsy finds no evidence of rape, and Divisional Detective Inspector Jim Cooper turns his attention to her private life. How did Lil come to be in the bomb site - a well-known lovers' haunt? If she had consensual sex, why was she strangled?

    Story

    This is an exciting thriller and the idea of using two narrators is excellent as this avoids a female reader doing exaggerated husky voices and for a male reader to try out irritating soprano efforts. Mike Lockyer the detective is extremely likeable and human. The intrigue is led at an agreable pace. This is my first encounter with Clarie Donoghue and I look forward to reading other books by this promising author.

    Three women have been found brutally murdered in south London, the victims only feet away from help during each sadistic attack. And the killer is getting braver.... Sarah Grainger is rapidly becoming too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing photographer, she knows that someone is watching her. A cryptic note brings everything into terrifying focus, but it's the chilling phone calls that take the case to another level. DI Mike Lockyer heads up the regional murder squad. With three bodies on his watch, and a killer growing in confidence, he frantically tries to find the link between these seemingly isolated incidents.

    Story

    Jack Frost has got to be one of the most endearing creations in detective fiction. His long-running antagonism with Mullet his superior is always amusing. Here he is investigating an outbreak of burglaries and the murder of a young girl. A black policeman has been drafted in from East London and in this early 1980s provincial town that makes something of a stir. The men work well as a team and unravel the mystery but it is the humour of the author and the characterisation of Frost that really make me want to listen to the end. The narrator is absolutely splendid and his performance really brings the book to life. It has to be said that the book has a very English feel to it so I don't know if American readers might find it so funny but I can only reccommend them to give it a try!

Linda's greatest hits:
  • Paganini's Ghost

    "Good plot - well read - and music link fascinating"

    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.

  • The Chessmen

    "Riveting conclusion to 1st rate trilogy"

    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.

  • Knife Edge

    "Another excellent listen from Paul Adam"

    Overall

    I came to this after thoroughly enjoying Paganini' Ghost. I was a little concerned at the beginning that I might find the subject matter (exploitation of illegal immigrants) too harrowing. However the way this was approached enabled me to stick with it and enjoy yet another good storyline from this author. This man obviously does his homework and the issues covered in Knife Edge have changed my slant on both the subject of immigrant workers and the questionable methods employed in the food chain. I will certainly look at both quite differently in the future. Another good read by the excellent Sean Barrett.

  • Death of a Gentle Lady: Hamish Macbeth, Book 23

    "A good listen for Hamish Macbeth fans"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This series is a strange mix of who-dun-it and humour that will either appeal to you or not. It greatly appeals to me although I only discovered Hamish Macbeth about 4 books ago. This is the first audible version of the stories I have listened to and I approached with some trepidation incase it spoilt my own mental image of this highly likeable policeman and highland setting. There was no need to worry this is read beautifully by David Monteath who conjures up exactly the same images for me as when I read the books myself. There is enough 'plot' in the books to make you try and stretch the little grey cells but they provide a nice light intermission amongst darker crime novels that you may be reading or listening to. I am at this moment downloading Book 24!
