Great 'Grounds for Appeal'

I loved Bernard Knight's Crowner John series and thought I wouldn't like the Richard Pryor Mysteries, but they are refreshing and enjoyable.

He applies the same attention the period detail of the 1950s as he did to the middle ages, which is both entertaining and educational! I look forward to more.

Another wonderful read by Jonathan Keeble

Jonathan Keeble has once again brought life to the 1950s with the reading of this great book. Get it now but maybe it would be a good idea to hear the books in order.

Disjointed and dated

Narrator did their best with limited material. Too many storylines left unresolved. Writing also dated.

OK

Would you try another book written by Bernard Knight or narrated by Jonathan Keeble?

Not if its narrated by Jonathan Keeble

Has Grounds for Appeal put you off other books in this genre?

No, I love this kind of book

Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Keeble’s performances?

No, because I very quickly got sick of listening to the generic "South Wales Boyo" accent that everyone seems to think is spoken in all parts of Wales! it really grated on my nerves after a few chapters so I stopped listening & haven't bothered since, shame because it might have been a good story
