"Exciting, pacey, vivid and humane. Read it." (Lesley Glaister)
"The descriptions of the setting, Yorkshire at its bleakest, the characters, were so subtly slipped in that I absorbed them subliminally.... I am now reading this excellent book again." (Shotsmag.co.uk)
Enjoy listening to crime and mystery thrillers. Favourite authors/narrators: Mankell, Nesbo, Hewson, James, Lyndsey/Reichlin & Barrett
PC Denton rises above his upbringing on a high rise estate, and renews contact with his father's side of the family. Despite a troubled start with a new chief detective, he rises above infighting in the community and the police to get the girl!!
I have really enjoyed reading these first two books in the Sean Denton series. Very refreshing locations and well written stories that flow well with unexpected twists and turns . I feel that I am already getting to know the main characters who are quite different to the usual whodunit crime fighters.
Thought the narrator did a great job bringing the different characters to life.
I am a big fan of series of books with the same characters having previously been through Ruth Rendell, Colin Dexter, Peter James and Peter Robinson and I truly believe that this series could be as good as those...
This book starts as it means to go on...fast paced on the edge of your seat and thrilling. I advise you to read Helens other book first...to catch a rabbit. ..as it's the start of what I hope is a series about Sean Denton.
Once again Jonathan Keeble does an incredible job as the narrator. This man knows how to read stories out loud.
I finished this in 24 hours. I just couldn't put it down and listened to it whilst working, walking my dog and forfeited an evening of tv to continue with this book.
A fantastic author.
"A good one"
This book had most of what I like: British setting, police procedural, the energy of youthful offenders, a couple of really good detectives, interracial chsracters, a bit of humor, and good story line.
