Don't miss this audiobook. If you do you will miss a gripping story that you won't want to put down and well the last chapter, had me sat holding my iphone willing him to safety.....Almost as if in our imagination we were there watching him. This one deserves more than 5 stars :-)

Brilliant listen

Have to say found this a hard one to get into however glad I stayed with it and persevered because the story was brilliant. Found rather than as in the first few chapters hard to keep with it turned to could not put it down........... I would love to read more in the series if the author plans it......Police with more 'sight' than normal is a great idea :-)

Brilliant

Hits the right spots. Mixture of time travel and history which leaves you yearning for book 2 as so gripping. 'Max' is a easy likeable character and I can see this as a good series that could make it to film or TV easily.

Such a gripping book I listened all the way through in one sitting whilst poorly in bed. The story was gripping and the ending a surprise different to what I assumed it would be half way through. The narrator was very good and I will surely look out for more books by both the author and that read by this narrator :-)

I really liked this book and the character of Harry is well established with me the listener realising he is troubled and an alcoholic. He is teamed up with an aboriginal to solve the case of a murdered girl and this in fact leads to the discovery of more murders.
Wether new to Harry Hole or familiar with the later books, it is well worth a listen and I enjoyed the story wanting more at the end. I have downloaded the whole series now and are steadily working my way through them. This is well narated by Sean Barrett and I am glad to have read this book first as from what I have heard they get even better as the series goes along.
I would recomend this audiobook and gave it five stars throughout as it kept me glued to it till the end in near one sitting!

I want more!

Fast moving and an excellent first book from this author.The narrator does a good clear job and I hope is chosen to do any sequels.I am very pleased with this book of the week as it certainly deserved its place, had to listen to it almost all the way through it was that gripping and the characters are easy liked with you feeling you are within the busy investigation.

I love good crime novels and have to say as in the title, more please :-)

Found this one a bit harder to get into/concentrate on and listened to it in portions over couple of weeks. However it came together at the end and I look forward to the next one.

So good onto book 2 of series already :-)

The narration reminds me of the sound and attitude of the old style crime audiobooks and I like it very much.The narrator puts across the senses and character of Tony brilliantly,putting emotion and effort into his voice. Tony finding his life mate is addictive leaving you wanting more of the story,so much I am straight onto Moon's Web,book number 2 in the series. 5 stars all round and I have downloaded the whole series available so far :-)

Well worth a listen

David Jason's biography is one I know after just finishing it,that I will want to listen to again. A lovely book of one of our most loved actors who many of us grew up with on the TV. Had me laughing when mentioned had nailed leonard's shoes to the floor as a joke in the dressing room and moved at many parts especially hearing the poetry from the first 'guvner' Ronnie Barker, before he was given the same fond title when Ronnie retired.

Won't say anymore as don't want to spoil it for you.

A must listen.
