What a great read this was. Both the writing and narration were of a high standard and the plot brilliant. Cant wait to read the next one. Thank you.

I had already read this story. My mistake instead of book collection 13-15 I somehow ended up with book 5! Very disappointed.

overly complicated

Having enjoyed the previous 11 books in this series, I am sorry to say I really struggled to finish this book. I believe the plot was too complex, with so many characters that the story became difficult to compue. It will not put me off reading more of the series, but this one is worthy of a miss!

Not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are a Midsommer fan then this will be right up your street, even down to Neil Dudgeon being the narrator. I really enjoy these no fuss, light hearted, crime stories which are easy to listen to without having to backtrack to a particular point when you feel you may have missed/misinterpreted a crucial point, which sometimes happens with a more involved plot. Keep them coming is what I say!

Having read one previous book of Shona MacLeans', I thought I would enjoy this .. but sadly it was not my cup of tea at all. What I did hear of the storyline seemed good and the narrators voice was superb but I simply found it was not for me.

I am so pleased that I have had the privilege to read this series of books by Ruth Rendell. Great characters as usual and narrated with faultless attention to detail. Perhaps nowadays rather an old fashioned style but such brilliant penmanship is well worthy of its place amongst the mystery/thriller stories of our times.

This book was too slow. I got fed up after 7 chapters and gave up. I wanted to enjoy it as the previous reviews and summary were good, but I just couldn't be bothered. Sorry

I really enjoyed this book. The characters came to life easily and the plot was well reasoned. My only problem was the narrator who did an excellent job and has a great reading voice, but sounded too old for the main character. I had to keep reminding myself just how old Diamond was. Overall a good read.

There is nothing bad to say about this enjoyable yarn. Cannot fault the narrator, nor the story. Characters were very realistic and the story was well performed. Just the right length too.

I did not finish this book. I found it awkward, unbelievable and just plain wrong. I love a good psychological book but this was too creepy for my likes in the same way 50 Shades of Grey was disturbing. The narration on the whole was good but unfortunately the storyline was not strong enough to grip my attention. This is the second novel I have read by this author. I won't be reading anymore.
