  • "Atmospheric sequel to The Blackhouse"

    Overall

    Although this book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, you'll get more from it if you listen to the first part of this trilogy of books largely set in the Outer Hebrides. Many of the characters from the first novel re-appear in the Lewis Man in which their lives are moved forward in time. As with The Blackhouse, though ostensibly a detective novel, that aspect of the narrative is just the back-drop to life stories that switch between the 1950s and the present day. There's lots of atmospheric writing about the scenery and weather (!). Along the way we learn more of how life on the islands has changed and social attitudes altered.
    Peter Forbes is an excellent narrator who really brought the characters alive for me.

    An unidentified corpse is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. News of the discovery soon reaches Fin Macleod. However, since swapping his life in Edinburgh for a quiet existence on Lewis, such mysteries are no longer a concern for the former Detective Inspector. Or so he thought. The sequel to the Blackhouse which was selected for the WH Smith Richard and Judy Bookclub, and the second book in the Lewis triology.

    Story

    Thanks to the favourable reviews of other listeners I downloaded this interesting and imaginative detective story. I have a rudimentary knowledge of music and know little about the finer points of playing the violin but enjoyed all the musical, technical and historical information that is seamlessly woven into parallel narratives: a modern one of a young virtuoso violinist giving concerts in Italy and another based on Paganini's life.

    The main characters are well drawn and the narrative gathers pace to become so gripping that I couldn't stop listening and finished the book very quickly. In the over-populated category of detective fiction the author has created a memorable book.

    Sean Barrett has an attractive natural voice that's a pleasure to listen to but is also adept at performing in different accents, ages and genders which he does to perfection in this recording.

    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?

  • "Another intruging story in the Rome..."

    Overall

    I've listened to all eight of the previous books in Hewson's Rome series following the detectives: Nic Costa, Giani Peroni and Leo Falconi and their collaboration with pathologist Teresa Lupo. If you've followed the series you'll know the author's style of combining a contemporary crime with an historical event often depicted in a painting. Each book has a stand-alone story, but you do get more insight into the characters by following the series chronologically. This ninth book is an intriguing crime story that resonates with an execution of a young women, Beatrice Censi, who was beheaded four hundred years earlier for killing her father. The modern day story involves the death of Malise Gabriel an English academic who falls to his death: is it an accident or murder? Mina, the daughter of the dead man identifies with Beatrice. But don't be surprised that the solution is not simple and there are twists and turns throughout the book. Great stuff.
    Saul Reichlin is a superb narrator and all the Italian words flow off his tongue like a native as they do when he reads all the Swedish words in the Steig Larsson, Millennium trilogy.

  • 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.

    "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.

    "An excellent contemporary thriller set in the UK"

    Overall

    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.

    Once again Ian Carmichael brings Lord Peter Wimsey to life and once again his characterisations are wonderful. I have become an avid fan of this series of books to such an extent that I have spent eight hours straight listening to this book. What more can I say? I believe I am an audiobook addict and I blame Ian Carmichael. If you are a fan of murder mysteries look no further!

    Murder is hardly the best way for Lord Peter and his bride, the famous mystery writer Harriet Vane, to start their honeymoon. It all begins when the former owner of their newly acquired estate is found quite nastily dead in the cellar. And what Lord Peter had hoped would be a very private and romantic stay in the country soon turns into a most baffling case, what with the mis-spelled 'notise' to the milkman and the intriguing condition of the dead man: there wasn't any blood on his smashed skull and he had six hundred pounds in his wallet.

    Every year for 10 years, a young woman's body was found in Edinburgh at Christmastime: naked, throat slit, body washed clean. The final victim, Kirsty Summers, was Detective Constable Tony McLean's fiancée. But the Christmas Killer made a mistake and McLean put an end to the brutal killing spree. Twelve years later, and a fellow prisoner has murdered the Christmas Killer. But with the festive season comes a body; naked, washed, her throat cut. Is this a copycat killer? Was the wrong man behind bars all this time? Or is there a more sinister explanation?
