This is the second Inspector Drake story. I thought this would be a locked room murder at the start as it takes place on a ferry but it soon becomes much more. A thoroughly enjoyable plot with a very satisfying denoument.
This book does stand alone but if you want to see how Drake's demons are catching up with him you need to read Brass in Pocket as well.
Great to see welsh places and names being pronounced correctly. Really looking forward to book 3.

A great listen

We listened to this on one of our frequent trips around Wales. The location of the story was Snowdon which is familiar to us. The book certainly gave a sense of the rugged terrain. This novella is a prequel to the other Drake stories. The crime was interesting with a satisfying denouement. Looking forward to the other Inspector Drake stories after this great start.

What does Peter Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His use of individual voices for the various characters, human and non-human make them memorable and bring them to life.

Best Culture novel

Would you listen to Use of Weapons again? Why?

Very good story extremely well narrated.

Depth of character, his narration is an interpretation and performance rather than a reading.
