Man, what a pile of shite! I mean, the narrator did a decent job, telling a story that might’ve been gripping but instead was just painful to listen to. Everyone in that story is a complete idiot! It’s just infuriating listening to accounts of people doing and saying things that no one in their right mind would ever do. It’s not the first book in the series that makes me feel that way but it’s most definitely the last book by Patricia Gibney I’ll ever read.

Not as good as the others

I really love the series, but this one was a bit of a letdown. No actual leads or viable suspects in the criminal case pretty much up until the end, the plot just drags on for hours. Can’t wait to read the next one though. Fingers crossed it will be better!

Unbearably painful

40h of this? Really? Who can endure 40h of this childish, silly, badly written blabbering? I tried getting into it for quite a few hours, hoping it would get better at one point, but the stupidity of the story simply made my head hurt!

This was so much more than I expected it to be! I laughed, I cried. then I laughed some more and cried some more.

too many storylines, too many characters

impossible to keep track of all the new characters introduced, all the little snippets of backstory, all the alliances, old and new. also really annoying that the story jumps in between the main story - of which there is barely any in this book - and some completely obsolete action sequences, involving some characters which aren't mentioned at any point before or after. Might be doable on paper, when you can go back to look up who is who, but listing to the book, it's just a giant mess!

Fun stories, superbly narrated. Although the „criminal cases“ of inspector Hobbes are not the most thrilling crime stories ever, the characters are just wonderful to hang out with! I definitely hope there’ll be another one.

Gave up after about 4 hours. Painfully stupid story, that Holter Graham can't save. Will return.

No no no!

God what an awful ending! Loved the first two books, but this one was just depressing and dreadful! Killing everyone for no reason...and of course she ends up with the wrong guy! Angry and disappointed!

To be fair, I would give 5* for Richard Armitage reading the phone book, but the story was a proper page turner too. bit disappointed by the ending though.

boring story narrated in a weird accent

kept waiting for the story to pick up and get a bit more interesting, but I struggled to keep listening until the end. the characters stay wooden and shallow and the storyline often makes no sense. the robot-like reading doesn't exactly help. and what is it with everyone's eastern European accent? makes no sense. annoyed I wasted my time on this.
