    "Awesome"

    I listened to this in practically one sitting...who wants to watch TV anyway? I adore Paul Thornley's narrative and once again he drew me in and wouldn't let go.
    Fab characters, slightly predictable story but still looking forward to the next...hurry!!

    "Another Cracking Kernick Book"

    Kernick is a good writer and Paul Thornley is perfect on narrating his books. Thornley's voice is well paced and natural which makes you believe that all these exciting events are happening to a 'real' person. He also does regional and female accents very well indeed.

    "What's next?"

    You can't just stop there Mr Kernick. Fast paced, well up to his usual stand, a book to keep you hooked from page 1 to the last one. A body count higher than Midsomer!!

    Story
    "Left hanging at the end amid too many bodies"

    I’ve listened to a number of the author's books and while this is an interesting, if somewhat implausible story, I never felt as engaged as I had with previous novels. The book starts well with an intriguing mystery as to how the bones of a young woman, who went missing on holiday in Thailand, ended up in a field in England. However, the narrative thereafter goes off in different directions and latterly deteriorates in a series of mass of killings. I also grew weary of the clichés of the genre: maverick cop, who is taken off the case because of going out on a limb; conflict with superiors, broken marriage etc., etc., but worst of all the story ends unresolved on a cliffhanger, presumably with the hope of selling the next book, but it short-changes the reader.

    The narrator is excellent as usual.

    "very disappointing"

    This book started really well, the narrator is excellent and the story draws you in - despite the rather improbable body count - but it never ended........ I would not like to spoil the book for another listener, but the "cliff hanger" ending left the impression that the author hadn't really thought about finishing the book, had reached the required number of words and simply stopped. I'm not sure I will bother with a sequel - imagine if that also ends so abruptly. Rather like a soap opera.
