Publisher's Summary

They died 30 years ago, but the case is not closed.

Five walkers set out to climb Ben Lomond on a fine October day. Within hours the weather has taken a turn for the worst. The group find themselves lost on the mountain. Two of the climbers manage to make it back down and call for help.

The following day a body is found. One of the female climbers has been strangled, and another man is missing without a trace.

DCI Dani Bevan is called to the Loch Lomond town of Ardyle to lead the case. It quickly becomes clear that Bevan must dig into the events of a similar tragedy that occurred on the hills 30 years earlier in order to find the killer.

This requires the DCI to face up to the ghosts of her own tragic past and to endeavor to put them behind her once and for all.

    "American market"

    This will appeal to the American market as it includes the love interest of an American detective with a story set in Scotland. Except for the excruciating part where Dani and Andy took it in turns to explain ' who dunnit ' , it was a reasonable listen.

    "More of this series, Please"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, enthusiastically. The characters are nicely developed and believable. The mystery is plausible. The performance is top notch.


    What other book might you compare Against a Dark Sky to and why?

    It's the first in a series, but it seems that character development is central and that there will be several characters developed. It reminds me of Quintin Jardine's Bob Skinner series.


    Have you listened to any of David Monteath’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the Mark Douglas-Home Sea Detective series. This is a gifted and talented performer, enough so that I've added other books just because he's the reader.


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

    No. It kept me engaged with the plot and caring about the characters, enough so that I want Audible to make the rest of the series available, very soon, please.
