Summary

Last Writes is a mischievously clever compendium of 22 short stories from the pen of classic crime author Catherine Aird.

Not only do her much-loved police duo, Detective Inspector Christopher Sloan and Detective Constable William Crosby, feature, but there's also a list of new characters, including the mysterious Malcolm Venables of the Secret Service.

Full of delicious twists and turns, Last Writes is a collection to curl up with and savour.

Disappointing

I’ve so enjoyed Catherine Aird books, but this one was a big disappointment. The short stories were very fluffy, and even Sloane and Crosby ones were a bit pathetic. Not the usual standard at all. I can’t see me listening to this again.
More full length stories please Audible.

Catherine Aird writes with intelligence & wit

If only all the C.D. Sloan books were available on Audible - and if only all were read by Robin Bailey! Failing that, it's a pleasure to listen to Gordon Griffin read some new (to me) short stories by the ever-inventive Catherine Aird. These are classic mysteries, always fair and even slyly funny. Now, please, let's have more of Ms Aird's stories available on Audible! (NOTE: I give books 4 stars when I know I'll re-read/re-listen to them; I read the book nearly 2 years ago & just listened to it this week. This is a book that is even better listened-to)
