An entirely interesting mix of memoir and observations hung on Sandi's journeys by bus.

Second book as good as the 1st

Another cracking story of
Poe and Bradshaw. Clever plot, nice twists and for me a delight that the Royal Observer Corps had a bit part as my Dad was a member.

Reporter becomes prey.

As a journalist fights to get the story on the serial killer her home life is complicated by her father's dementia. And she then is in the sights of the killer.

Excellent story but I sometimes found the dementia scenes hard to listen to as they were so sad.

Great reading of an exciting story. Some of it is a bit hard to listen to as the violence was rather gruesome but with some amazing cliffhangers and great plot twists I enjoyed this the most yet.

I may move seats and route.

Frightening concept of women's daily commute info being sold to men. Very clever with interesting characters and lots of twists. And the final chilling epilogue.

Very well narrated but this was a bleak time in Glasgow. It is an interesting story but I wasn't a big fan of the flashback nature of the telling.

No doubt casual misogyny was normal but this was tiresome. Were there really high ranking female detectives?

A very interesting look at the campaigns of 1918. From the entry of USA until the final victory.

I'm not a man so to have the experience of being a man explained and examined was very interesting. And as a plea for men to be allowed to be themselves and be given a chance to find out what that is this is excellent. Although not read by the author the tone and accent is reminiscent.
