This is the first story I have read from this author and it was interesting. Good plot, background and I liked the twist. The narrator puts the whole list of characters over very well, great job Angus. I will definitely go for the next book in the series. Thanks to all the team involved.

Another installment of what sex maniac Terry gets up to. Once again totally well read by Tam pronounceing all the correct Edinburgh word used by the locals. Ah mean the book's barrie... mate.

Great story with twists and turns all the way.

Thanks Doug,
Another great story incorporating the local Edinburgh scene. Sarah also does a great job of telling the story. Your latest is a welcomed release and this kept me sane while painting my fence in the past few days in lockdown.
I can imagine you have another plot for these women, already bubbling away in your head. Keep up the good work.

A scary story about possibly the slow end of the world in respect to dark forces. Not something I should be reading during the start of a pandemic! As usual a great performance from Sean and his baritone voice. All round good book under better circumstances.🙂🙂🙂

An interesting guy I can relate to

I have never been a Steve Coogan fan. I some how never got into his comedy stream. That said he is definitely a man with talent and skill. I found his stories of his early years really relate. I had what I feel was a similar background with a similar dad. A great guy but old school. I really enjoyed hearing about someone famous having a similar story in life and doing something with his early talent. It's good to hear we all make it though life in our own way. Thanks for that Steve. Though why am thanking you, when I paid for the book... I don't know.

Who knew Violins could've so interesting.

This was a great story. I guess, steeped in some history where you learn a lot about things you know nothing about. Loved it. It had been in my list for years and I just decided, ahh what the hell. It was very well read by the narrator and had some great twists and turns throughout.

This is a great biography of a man who seems to have done everything possible in the music industry. it's a great read of a guy making his mark in a very punishing industry. read very well and convincingly by Jonathan Pryce, at times so convincing to seem like Tom. Great job all round guys.

I did not enjoy this as much as some previous works from this author I have listened to. on this occasion I found the story to be dull and circular. Just going round and round. For me, not the best.

Portobello or Joppa, always something going on.

once again great to read something local to the area I know and was brought up in. I like the back ground idea of volcanic activity. Great creativity from the author. The narrator did a great job with the accents and distinguishing the different characters. Well done all round . Certainly recommend this as a read.

Dr Simpson's assistants strike again.

Like the first story this continues on in the same era. based around Dr Simpson and Edinburgh society of the time. the story keeps you interested throughout and has various tangents in the plot to keep interest. Quite enjoyable. keep up the good work Mr & Mrs Brookmyre.
