Would you try another book written by Robert Goddard or narrated by Gerard Doyle?

Yes to Robert Goddard but definitely not if read by Gerard Doyle. Almost total lack of expression- he might as well read the telephone directory!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dying To Tell?

I couldn't say what was the most memorable moment because in the end I just gave up.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gerard Doyle’s performances?

CERTAINLY NOT

What character would you cut from Dying To Tell?

Can't say - see above.

Any additional comments?

I would have saved my time and money if you gave the facility to hear a sample in The same way that I can for my Kindle. Robert Goddard is a great author, but the narrator ruined the book.
