    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.

Sarah Grainger is rapidly becoming too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing photographer, she knows that someone is watching her.

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

    This is a gripping tale but I like to read Ian Rankin more for his characterisation than his plots. Rebus is one of the best detectives of modern crime literature and here in spite of his increasing age he has lost none of his mental agility. He is at heart a thoroughly moral man but thankfully not a moralist which is why I find him so irrestistible. Siobhan, his former Detective Constable is now a Detective Inspector and out to prove herself. Just for good measure Fox is also included in this book and has undergone rehabilitation on the part of the author.

    If you are a fan of Rankin you won't be disappointed.

    "At last the book not the play."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Pietr the Latvian the most enjoyable?

    Great to see the books out and translated well - not the BBC plays which are good but not good enough - well paced and full of character and texture. Old school investigation, gritty Gaelic noir!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Crime mystery at its intricate best.


    Have you listened to any of Gareth Armstrong’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Really well read - the many voices are all distinct and played with conviction


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    AT LAST A DECENT FILM

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Complete Ripley Radio Mysteries the most enjoyable?

    All the BBC radio plays in one - back of the head - shot. Radio and Ripley work wonderfully together - his dark intent and the unseen violence convey the menace and style or the original works.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great pace and well played characters - Ripley is horribly believable


    What does Ian Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Cold, cold style, he really gets over the calculating edge Ripley needs


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Chilling and very coo


    Any additional comments?

    Easily a repeat listen

    Having loved Gone Girl I thought this would be a disappointment but I was wrong. It is different and maybe not quite as obsessive and compelling but it gently catches you and you just want more. The Characters are wonderfully unlovable and the pace is near perfect.
    hard to believe at times yet it becomes believable as the story draws you in.
    A really good read and really requires you to pay attention.
