    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 find myself buying the titles of James Craig as they appear. Inspector Carlyle seems a dangerous man to work around as he keeps losing colleagues to sticky deaths.
    It was good and very listenable to - apart from it rambling on a bit in the middle. Interesting family story on the sideline.

    Inspector John Carlyle gets the shock of his life when his mother announces she is getting a divorce after 50 years of marriage. But that's nothing compared to the storm that erupts when he stumbles across an execution of a wealthy businessman in a luxury London hotel room. The victim is the latest in a line of bodies being left across London by a ruthless Israeli hit squad.

    Going up against this deadly crew could prove to be fatal to Carlyle, but compared to his troubles at home, however, tracking them is something of a relief. But the body count continues to rise and then it gets personal....

    Story

    I felt this book took a while to get off the ground. I felt myself getting quite annoyed at the new character, Jessie, but then I realised that this is exactly what clever Mr Muir was after.
    The book was a bit slower to get off the ground than the first three in the series and Gilchrist was a bit more in the background. Looking forward to number 5 and Mr Muir is already setting the scene for it in this novel.

M's greatest hits:
  • Paganini's Ghost

    "Excellent murder mystery set in Italy"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. It is a murder mystery set in Italy, where the story unravels through the eyes of a middle aged violin maker/repairer and the context is the classical music scene. The characterisation and plot are excellent, although the overall pace is a little on the slow side. This is mainly due to small excursions into musical history, which were very interesting, but not, perhaps, essential. If you enjoy: classical music, good food, works of art, Italy and murder mysteries then you will enjoy this novel.

  • The Loner

    "Has the paint dried yet?"

    Overall

    I bought this book based on the high rating and the two reviews. However, after listening to it for about three hours I am giving up. At the point where I abandoned this book, the protagonist, was a rich 17 yr old, bilingual, precocious teenager over 2m tall. He had an exceptional intellect (stays at the top of the class without any effort and passes exams easily) . And he had great physical talents (plays rugby above his age group and is snapped up by a professional football club having never played the game). His wealth came from his self-made, ruthless, and foul-mouthed capitalist father, who also plays an important role in the narrative. From what I have read, I also know a lot about his irascible and inscrutable Spanish Grandmother. And I know about his school friends and acquaintances. But the plot alludes me and for a thriller it is just too slow. Having said this, the characters are quite well drawn, and could be believable if you wanted to believe in them. The Scottish context is good. And the reading is good. Perhaps if I had stuck with it until something thrilling, mysterious or exciting happened then it might have turned into a great novel, but my attention span is just too short. And I think that giving it three hours to get going is more than enough.

  • Knife Edge

    "An excellent contemporary thriller set in the UK"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was the second Paul Adam book that I have listened to and it was even better than the first. Within this genre, there was a sufficiently rich and complex set of characters to complement the plot and whose back stories were touched upon in enough detail to make them believable. The story had two main threads that were interwoven to produce a coherent narrative and it drew on topical issues that will resonate with anyone living in the UK today. There were good changes of pace that reflected the situation of the protagonists. If there is a minor criticism, it is that the plot fitted together too well, so that small elements of detail in the later part of the story telegraphed the endgame. Finally, the narrator gave a virtuoso performance that made the characters and the story come alive. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a thriller with a good plot and good characterisation. Without doubt, I will certainly be listening to Paul Adam's other books.

  • Lennox

    "First class Chandleresque thriller set in Glasgow"

    Overall

    My title says it all. The novel is a thriller set in Glasgow during the 1950's. It inhabits the post WWII era of the Glasgow ganglands. The style and voice is one of Raymond Chandler and it is done vey well, in fact the plotting is possibly better than Chandler.

    However, in my opinion, the echo of Chandler is also the novel's problem. I can live withthe cliche's and stereo-types, but I would have preferred the author to have created his own voice, which I am sure he is capable of. This does not detract too much from the enjoyment of a really good thriller, where suspension of disbelief is possible all of the way through. If you enjoy tribute bands as much as the real thing, and if you like Chandler, then you will like this novel.

    Th narration is also first class.

    I enjoyed this very much from the plausible and exciting plot to the way the narrator brought the characters life. Each character was given a perfect voice and the ending had me unable to turn it off. Start to finish it was an exciting and twisty, turny plot and I thoroughly recommend it.
