I am totally frustrated the next books in the series are not yet out on audible. Please do not change the narrator. I have loved all three so far. Well written and non stop action with great characters. J M Dalgliesh is a brilliant find !

Such a disappointment as a book. If you like a Victorian style written more slowly and deliberately than Dickens then you may like it, but I could not tolerate the slow pace and the, albeit, quite realistic, attempt to write as though the author was 200 years old.

The worst narration I have ever heard, I gave up !

I think the story might have been interesting but after several attempts I had to give up. I have never heard such terrible narration in any audible book before. It was the most odd, and off putting way of reading I have ever come across.

An original book with a great story full of twists and turns, excellent characters and no slow points. The story kept me guessing till the end. I was thoroughly taken by this excellent writer who was new to me. One of those audible reads that stands way above the rest. I am now going to look out for more by this author.

So pleased to see such a success story for Tom Marcus. Not only clearly a brave and intelligent man but also a superb thriller writer. Cannot wait for the next instalment.
