"A welcome addition to the fictional police ranks." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Flynn is the former head of Notts Fraud Squad. But his first book proves he's no PC Plod in the art of writing." (Sunday Express)
"DI Graham, with his homicidal Lakeland terrier, is an unconventional copper from the same breed as Frost and Morse. On this form, like them he should win fans and keep them." (Val McDermid, Manchester Evening News)
This is a really good listen and if you like Frost, you will certainly like DI Graham and his sexy sidekick Stalin (I mean Joe); they are quite similar being very believable, likeable characters as well as good coppers.
I would certainly like to hear more from DI Graham and Joe, please Audible.
This was my first book by this author and I quite enjoyed it. The plot was interesting and kept me guessing as we approached the end of the book. The characters were nicely rounded but I found some of the interactions a bit hard going in terms of the hostility between them, until I got more of the situation. The main character was realistic and I felt like he was more of an old friend than a new character.
The narration was clear, recording quality good and the definition between character voices was crisp. The narrator certainly has the right voice for this book.
Over all I enjoyed this and will certainly try the author again.
While this book is entertaining, it is quite sexist in its treatment of middle aged women.
"A seaside soap opera"
A likeable main character and his dog, but the story dragged slowly to its unsurprising conclusion with too many thinly drawn characters and little excitement along the way.
