Jackson Makes it a Hat Trick!

David Jackson has done it again. Another excellent story for his lead Nathan Cody featuring great drama, strong characters and another highly impressive reading by Jonathan Keeble. The first thing to say though is that having so many characters in one accent is tough for any narrator. I think Keeble does a cracking job of differentiating so many in what is clearly not his native accent. Some, I feel sure, are going to struggle to like them though so maybe the audio sample is a good starting point. In all other aspects the narration is simply top class without any reservations.

Assuming you are okay with the narration the story itself is a clever one with what I thought was an excellent twist at the end which although it was signalled throughout I simply never saw coming. Cody's back story does not progress a great deal which the previous book had strongly suggested was coming but structurally it would have been difficult to fit this into this story which occupies a fairly brief period of time. Jackson is going to make us wait for that back story to develop it seems.

In short it's another excellent thriller in the series, and oh dear it's another one I need to keep track of. Too many damn good authors too little time!

Formulaic but OK

Maybe I listen to too many crime novels but my heart sank when the clichés of the genre were rolled out in this book. Detectives with broken, dysfunctional relationships, and stroppy senior detectives, now always female, railing at staff to get results. Kidnapped children kept in solitary confinement as a topic has been done too often and the story was mainly predictable except the tagged on ending. I listened as I did other things.
The narrator is excellent and kept me listening when I might other wise have given up.

SURPRISE ENDING

without giving anything away the ending took the storyline to the last paragraph totally encapsulating fully believable. it still leaves that thread of unanswered questions re cody's past and leaves you wanting the next book

One of the best suspense books ever

Loved this book for the sense of foreboding and peril. Loved the characters of the girls and obviously root for Cody and Megan. All round great book read expertly by the best storyteller in the business Mr Keeble.

Highly recommended

Top marks !!

I listened to this book in the car. I found myself sitting waiting for the end of the chapter before I got out. I counted. I’ve listened to 62 audiobooks. This was one of the best ! Excellent twist at the end. I’m sorry it’s finished. Roll on the next book

Creepy as hell but excellent story

I really enjoyed the previous books in this series but I think this is possibly the best so far. It's a pretty creepy theme but the story is well structured and the performance is excellent.

great as ever

David Jackson has not disappointed. This 3rd book was brilliant, I had it read in the one day and I look forward until the 4th book. Jonathon Keeble did a fantastic job with the narration. I strongly recommend this book, so many twists and turns. A gripping read.

RIVETING

Can't wait till the next one. I laughed, cried and just could not put the book down. Jonathan Keeble can narrate like no other. All three of the Nathan Cody series are great. My hat is off to you David Jackson!!!

This series continues to get better with each book

Ordinarily I do not enjoy psychological thrillers, but this series is so well done, I look forward to each new book. The critic reviews for the first book seemed to indicate a police procedural series, however, it was a very dark story. The success, of this series for me, is the development of the characters. Don't make a sound is another dark entry, but it makes sense and has a wonderful conclusion.

Love the series

I have to admit that I loved the book but didn’t care for the ending. Left too much unknown and I was empty needing more. Starting the 4th book now and hoping for some continuation on what happens with the girls!

Another Excellent Nathan Cody book

I am a huge fan of these David Jackson novels. The story grabbed me from the beginning and I listened late into the night. The characters are beautifully developed and the story flows through the different subplots.

Just what I needed!

Absolutely loved everything about this book. The story was great. Short chapters without filler. The narration was great and the ending was great. I needed a book like this. I can’t believe I kept bypassing this in my library. I am definitely going to read/listen to the two that come before this one. I have a new favorite author.

Great series!

This is the 3rd book in this series and I am anxiously waiting for number 4. It is complex- the characters are courageous but also exasperating! The evil in this book can’t be described and you, as the reader, are waiting for his downfall- but the story continues....

The narration is really good, the story better. Worth time and credits!

Absolutely UNpredictable and clever plot.

I could NOT put this one down. The Best so far by this author. Feel as if I’ve been on a roller coaster the way the plot swung round and up and down. Excellent, brilliant.

Quickly becoming one of my favorite series

This was a great listen and Keeble is outstanding. Cody, Blunt, and Webbly are an interesting trio of characters.
