    Rock climbers can't afford to make careless mistakes. But Detective Inspector Nick Dixon's former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, died doing just that. Or so it seems. Dixon suspects foul play, but his only leads are unreliable accounts of something odd happening in Cheddar Gorge seconds before Jake fell.

    This Crow Flies Pretty Well

    Yes, I would. It's a good read, entertaining and pulls you in.

    terrible narration

    This was a good story which was totally ruined by the narrator. The narration was so awful I couldn't listen to it; I had to read it instead
