when I finished my last audible book I was a day or two from y getting my credit for another sink bought this to pass the time as a bit of comedy is always welcome I love Ronnie Barker brilliant comedian the others in character were magnificent. also Blanco ,Harris, Lukewarm,McLaren,Mr.Barrowclough, Harry Grout,Mr McKay and of course the brilliant Lenny Godber I could go on and on but I'll say 5* is the minimum I can give it and in the future when I finish my audiobook either going to or returning from work I'll always have this to fall back on simply a great purchase

enjoyed it

different for me I normally like a good thriller but I liked the look of this and it wasn't bad I thought the narrator done well the story was good and in the end I was happy to have listened would I rush out for the next one no I wouldn't but this wouldn't put me off I just fancied a change from police work and inside courtrooms this fitted the bill and I enjoyed it

I am a big fan of John Grisham and recently some of his books have came in for criticism unfairly in my opinion but that's the beauty of reading or listening to books we all have different opinions for this I found it interesting the characters were brilliant the storyline awesome and as I listened to it the narrator fantastic this all helps and I won't spoil things for you but if you are a Grisham fan and feel that his last few books haven't been to his high standard then this is for you because he is back with one almighty bang

A good listen

I have never seen the movie so to listen to the book was the obvious choice first of at all it was brilliantly narrated,the story is amazing, the only fault I have was when going through certain characters they story jumped from one year to another then another character would come into the story and you would be back say 5 years this happens a few times and I found some bits difficult to keep up with in the main the story is a beauty and I did enjoy listened to it

simply brilliant

Mark Edwards heroes it time and time again I've read various books of his I'm a huge fan he gets you hooked from the first page this is no different it's the first time I've done audible with him and the word superb just oozes out when describing the story ,in this the characters are fantastic without giving the story away I was really on edge listening to this I had images of certain characters and certain situations as the story unfolded this I put down to both of the narrators who told the story fantastically right down to the end I was asking myself surely not !!! that cannot happen and credit to the author for keeping thee story going to such effect please read this is all I ask you won't be disappointed I have read 6 of the authors books and have to say I find his books fast paced exciting and gripping easy 5 stars from me .

A very interesting storyline with intriguing characters have to say that audible books are made by the performance of the narrator and in this he was 5 star

This was a book I was looking forward very much to reading then I saw it was also available in audio having listened to one audio book before and thoroughly enjoying it k decided to listen to this I'm sorry to say that I found it difficult to follow the accents of the narrator I thought spoiled the story the storyline was good and if I were to read this I think I would enjoy much more this is only my view it won't stop me reading ed James in future
