I have liked all of Macbrides books and this is no exception. He never disappoints. I was unsure because it was not about his usual Aberdonian characters but it was a great read, gritty and real with unexpected twists to the story line. And the narrator was spot on.
This was a refreshing book - seemingly ordinary and yet very intricate. The relationships are very believable and when it was finished I missed the characters. I also played in the woods when I was a child and it took me back there. I have just ordered another Tana French book to read on holiday.
This is a really gripping story by Lynda La Plante. I love her characters and intricate stories even though it petered out just a a bit towards the end. It was spoiled for me by the narrator. Jilly Bond should not try to do voices - especially mens voices. They are so ridiculous that they are not congruent with the story line and at times I laughed out loud when actually the story was quite tense. Weird!
This is the second McBride audio book I have listened to after reading some of his books in paperback. I love them. They twist and turn like the best of Taggart and his narrative is just right. If you know Aberdeen I think it makes them even better, I would recomend it to anyone who likes a good british detective story.
