Publisher's Summary

Joss Grand once ruled the Brighton underworld with his sidekick Jacky Nye - until Jacky washed up by the West Pier in 1968. Though Grand's alibi seems cast-iron, Luke, a true crime writer, is sure there's more to the story, and he convinces the criminal-turned-philanthropist to be interviewed for a book about his life. Soon Luke realises that in stirring up secrets from the past, he may be in terrible danger.

    Story
    "Colourful characters and description."

    Enjoyed the narration. The way the story was built up and how each character was portrayed was excellent. Particularly enjoyed the description of the setting- in and around Brighton.

    Story
    "Intrigue, murder, passion and pain"
    If you could sum up The Ties That Bind in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, compelling, thought-provoking


    What other book might you compare The Ties That Bind to, and why?

    Peter James Inspector Grace series as the descriptions of the Brighton area are quite detailed and the complex relationships in the book remind me of his writing.


    What about Robert Blackwood’s performance did you like?

    The various characters came to life with the voices given to them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In long chunks if not in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    A book that takes you to unexpected places. The interesting relationships, deep emotions and the ability to find good in those around you are all contributing factors to a well balanced and gripping book.
