Firstly I would like to thank Audible for allowing me to refund my credits for two Victoria Hislop books which I could not bear to listen to .... awful writing. Susan Hill is, in contrast, a wonderfully enthralling author and I can't stop listening to this "Serrailler" series. My dog is having her paws worn down with all the walks she is having while i listen. Thank you Audible and thank you Susan Hill !!!!

Narrator is first class too!!!

This is the second Karin Slaughter that I've listened to and now I'm "hooked". It has to be said though, that it's pretty gory and difficult to listen to in places. However, the characters are so rounded and grounded and the story so compelling that I'll grit my teeth until they're done. The author is so clever and the narration is perfect for this work ... truly brilliant.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It is far too long and the style of writing is pedantic.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Perry again?

Yes, I like Anne Perry but this is, by far, the least enjoyable of her books ... in my opinion.

What three words best describe Davina Porter’s voice?

Appropriate, agreeable and expressive.

Do you think The Sins of the Wolf needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

.... just finished listening and feel like I've lost "an old friend". I loved the characters and the setting but it's the story which is haunting. An outstanding book.

I enjoyed every moment ... this author has captured the time and place of London in the 50s in fine detail.
All three books in this series are brilliant and totally memorable.

The best book I've listened to for a very long time. This author is truly gifted: not a wasted word, she is a wonderful creator of character, plot and setting. I don't find it easy to listen to harsh description but because of it's necessity in this context I managed it. Wonderful narration too!!! I will remember this book.
