Detective Pieter Vos is given cause to reopen the case when the girls disappear. His investigation takes an unexpected turn when it becomes clear that someone is posing as Little Jo - Kim and Mia's other sister, who was killed along with their parents....

    "Another cracking good story from David Hewson"

    The next chapter in the Amsterdam series. You can listen as a stand alone story but why not start from the beginning!

    I like the Amsterdam police in this story, they are straightforward and not too hung up on their personal lives. The story is the centre with few distractions.

    The story is fast paced, with interesting twists and turns. Saul Reichlin is a great narrator and I like the consistency of the same narrator for each book.

    "Not my favourite"

    Have enjoyed the other stories so much more. The cast and point of view too many this time, difficult to get invested in any of them and Vos comes across as just a bit part player sadly

    "Crime fiction at its best"

    An Ingenious plot, tantalising twists, convincing characterisation, tragic denouement: all delivered consummately by Saul Reichlin.

    Story
    "Angry Characters, sombre plot and humourless"
    Any additional comments?

    David Hewson is without doubt a terrific writer. His books are atmospheric, clever, beautifully written, with characters who are defined and believable. Little Sister contains all these elements, yet its sombre plot, angry characters who are all yelling and screeching at each other, apart from the main character who remains calm throughout, tends to make the listener wish the whole sordid story would end. Working out who dunnit with a choice of nasty people asks the listener to pay very close attention, and this sometimes is hard when you want to shut down the ranting and raving of these people. Dark memories, secretive pasts leads to a grand present finale with an ending that leaves you wondering why did you just wade through hours and hours of listening time. I recommend to all David Hewson fans, you will not be disappointed. However if you are depressed, feeling melancholy or needing an injection of humour or laughter, then perhaps give this audio a miss.

    Story
    "This story just dragged"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I cannot say really, I found it a very long winded


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The story actually picked up the pace at the end. The last line was very memorable


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Saul Reichlin?

    This is a hard one to answer. I have always enjoyed Saul Reichlin as a narrator, but on this occasion, I found his narration like being dragged through treacle. There were no defining characters they all blended into one, and on occasions sounded as if they were quite simple


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Really disappointed I wish the author would return to the Nic Costa books

    Story
    "Vos closes an historical case"

    His department's famous old case comes alive when 2 angelic sisters, in juvenile care, escape from being monitored in a hostel. This sets off a series of killings, as history corrects itself. Vos battles against obstructive colleagues and lack of assistance from an isolated community. Story well developed and told. Enjoy!

    "Good Book"

    I love the scandi noir books but it takes a while to know the people, luckily we had met some of these characters before which helped. Very good story, kept me guessing until the end.
