Brilliant!

Really exciting story and Greg Patmore is the most marvelous narrator... his ability to adopt different voices is amazing and makes a thrilling story come to life! A great listen - I’m now on to the next one!

Good story line

Thoroughly enjoyed this. I will certainly look for more. So many subplots that I hope will be developed in future books. Well done!

Entertaining and a little gory

I really enjoyed the first book in the series and this was a great follow up. Caslin's character is a little more well-rounded and while he's far from perfect he's entertaining and good at his job. There are a few gory scenes but then it's thriller/crime/mystery book in a series called Dark Yorkshire so surely that's to be expected. Not the most believable story but delivers on the thrills and kept me wanting more.

The Narrator, Greg Patmore does a good job for the most part with easily distinguishable voices and a pleasure to listen to but...I do wish he'd make up his mind whether Caslin's love interest is called Sarah (rhymes with Carer) or Sara (rhymes with Tara) as he switches between the two over and over again, often between sentences which quickly becomes very distracting and irritating.

I received a free copy of this audiobook either from the author, narrator or a promotion or giveaway and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

Ha! The publisher's blurb had me at Scotland, crime, detective. The author lost me about chapter 4-5. Boring after a while. This poor detective must have suffered one head injury too many. He wanders around the office, the streets, the city. By the last 20% of the book, more villians pop out of the wallpaper
than I could keep up with :-)
