Robert Goddard approaching his best. A winding and twisting tale involving actual and fictional characters. Past Caring is my favourite, and this is reasonably close.

Very good performance from Rosamund Pike. A good double story of mother and daughter, with the history of Ava pulling the narrative together. Enjoyed every moment.

Sadly a formulaic rewrite of the Clifton chronicles and others . Good narration of characters . I listened to the end so will not as to return this item. Disappointed.

Not Goddard ‘ s best I think but still a very strong plot and narrative. Michael kitchen ‘s performance is excellent.

Michael Kitchen is outstanding

A first class mystery writer, Goddard weaves an intricate tale and Michael Kitchen performs to the highest standard. My favourite is still past caring but only slightly, this is excellent storytelling

Very Entertaining

Very well read and performed and a strong story very typical of the author. Harry is an excellent central character.

Well written and narrated. A few loose ends but presumably followed up In a later book. Some graphically described violence not for the squeamish . Strong storylines throughout .

A good old fashioned 'yarn'. Too wordy and overly descriptive with a contrived ending. The literary quotations at the beginning of each chapter became very pompous sounding. An easy if overlong listen.

Strike is a character worth listening to.

This is a slow burn. It takes a while to get into the tale but it is worth it. There is extensive detail in the narrative development and Strike is the most unusual of detectives. The narration and performance is strong. The climax builds and is a great twist. My first from this author but I will return. Jon
