The early recordings are clearly a work in progress, but as time goes by the episodes get better and better. My only problem is that I listen to audible books at night, as a relaxation before sleep, the episodic music breaks become really annoying.

So slow and boring.

I bought this book on the basis of reviewer's recommendations. I can't understand the high stars that it has scored. It was so long and waffling, the thriller element totally absent. I gave up before the end.

I could not finish this book. It is hard to beleive it is the same author who writes the wonderful Charles Paris books. Simon Brett's narration is awful. The characters are dull and the story boring.

Only 20 hours I could have done with another 20. Great story telling and cast.

This is the second try for a Paton Walsh crime story. I based this on previous good reviews. I find, like the first book, the story starts out interesting and then is filled with stuffing and could be a third shorter in length. I gave up. I will not be buying a third one.

Wonderful Penelope Keith

I don't really like MC Beaton's work, I find the books badly written and rather coarse, but with Penelope Keith playing Agatha Raisin they are a joy.

I am a big fan of Peter Lovesey and his Diamond series. I found this book very disapointing. The story was slight and very long winded.

Highly recommended.

Kate Atkinson is a really good writer, funny and wise. The only problem is she does not write enough books featuring Jackson Brodie. More please.

Too much filling and not enough story. Could have been at least a third shorter. I couldn't finish.

No story, dull characters, could have 2/3's shorter. I made the mistake of reading a review that compared this author to PD James. Nothing could be further from the truth.
