"Good page turner or the audio equivalent!"
Really enjoyed this audio, full of suspense and kept you guessing. My only regret is that I had not listened to this novel before seeing that there were follow up stories and that various characters lived to "fight" another day! Well worth a listen - recommended.
"Like the Curate's Egg - good in parts"
As commented elsewhere each story is a little short, but each had something to offer, albeit The French Teacher was probably a little too far fetched! My favourite was The Birthday Surprise. Well read, the narrator had a sexy soft voice which added enjoyment to the "listen". Worth a listen either alone or cuddled up to a significant other!
"What a good book"
If you like thrillers, with twists then this one is for you. Well read it keeps you interested throughout, and just when you think you've worked it out, the plot corkscrews off taking you to a whole new place. Then eventually just when you think that the author has forgotten a loose end everything is answered. There is a major location shift in the middle of the story which totally threw me as initially I thought that the download had gone wrong, but in the words of Oasis you need to "roll with it". Very well read with good characterisation, thoroughly recommended - I am saving the second book in the series for my upcoming holiday in Greece - can't wait.
"Like the curates egg - good in parts"
Found 3 of the stories quite good but was not keen on the ones about the Orient Express & Photographer. All characters seemed to have an incredible sexual stamina and ability to repeat performances instantly, which made the stories seem a little unbelieveable. Written in an old fashioned style, as the tales I presume are set in the 30's, the language used was a little repetitve; and I did not really like the stories being read by a woman when all but one of the tales is written in the masculine 1st person; although the narrator did have quite a good style. Not the best in the series but certainly raunchy!
"A Really Good Listen!"
Thoroughly enjoyable crime thriller, made all the more enjoyable if you grew up in the 60's, like me, and can identify with some of the musical references of the time. The switching between the present day and 1969 investigations works well, and inspite of DI Banks and his colleagues being established serial fictional characters, the author doesn't stint on developing the 60's characters in the story. This was my first DI Bank's novel and it made me thirsty for more, although unfortunately the are are no other unabridged audios. Shame!
"Something for Everyone?"
A highly erotic audio with something for everyone, albeit the majority of the action is female dom/sub. Storyline is fairly thin although it does work, as there are some well integrated flashbacks to introduce erotic variety, as well as a good twist! Would certainly recommend, and would download another audio from this author/narrator.
