Very open account of the Trump family, the money grabbing selfish narcissistic thieving tax cheats exposed. The treatment of Mary Trumps mother after her fathers death is shocking, as is the familiy’s treatment of her and her brother. It just shows you what that family are really like. The similarities between the Orange Idiot-in-Chief and his corrupt father are striking. As my old Irish Granny used to say “the apple didn’t fall far from the tree”

Terrible story, made worse by very poor narration. Why do the women have to be completely vacuous and slutty? Pile of dogsh*t, waste of a credit.

Superb! So relaxing!

I absolutely love Hugh Fraser doing narration, I have all the Agatha Christie books he narrates. This book is perfect if you want to relax and switch off from the world and just drift away. I would completely recommend this book to everyone, it is so soothing, perfect for the commute home on the train. I am biased as I adore Hugh Fraser narrating, I wish he would do more books.

I listened to these, all individual short stories, to be fair, I listened to all but only the last one was any good really.

Great story

I’ve seen the film so thought I’d listen to the story, some chapters were a bit naff, like the emails one, doesn’t read well out loud. The narrator is ok, but I’d recommend you put the voice speed on 1.25 I found that much better as he talks painfully slow. He also doesn’t really do voices for everyone so it gets a bit confusing.

Why the change?

I used to really enjoy listening to Joe Mantegna narrate these Spenser stories but the narration on this one is awful. It sounds plain and uninteresting as does Mantegna, you can tell he’s just reading it, not bringing it to life. Maybe I’ve been spoilt by the older books he narrated but this one feels like he is enunciating every word for a teacher. Found it hard to follow the story.

Predictable but ok

The narration is very good, the story is weak and the final clue when it’s revealed is well........ put it this way, it’s not the crime of the century and I’m sure like me you’d of been asking it after a few chapters. As for the DS, I’d be embarrassed to work for her! Don’t waste your money.

Very good story, some things don’t change I guess. Worth the listen for the “twist” at the end.

From the opening chapter I was hooked! If you suspend disbelief then you will throughly enjoy this tale, twisting and turning until he final chapter. Will keep you engaged. RECOMMEND

Completely Crackers!

This story is crazy, much loved and well written, but for me the only thing that makes this Audible story GREAT, is David Hyde Pierce’s excellent narration. It’s probably the best delivery of this story ever! Download it now!
