Part 3 getting even better

As with the previous books a number of new and ongoing stories are skillfully blended. Complete in its own right it also sets up part 4 wonderfully.

Toby Longworth is a wonderful narrator who skilfully brings a range of accents to the story. Well worth listening to anything he narrates.

Hull and its environs are brought to life by a writer who knows and loves the area.

Recommended for lovers of detective stories with a wider edge.

Another good book

A slow starter but hang in there when it gathers momentum you cannot stop listening. Well worth it.

Excellent! Couldn’t put it down!

This book is excellent, really well written, richly drawn characters and a meaty, compelling story. I look forward to the other books in the series.
