Summary

If she can't get justice, will she settle for vengeance?

Kaz Phelps has escaped her brother and her criminal past to become an anonymous art student in Glasgow. But can life under the witness protection scheme ever give her the freedom she craves?

Banged up and brooding, Joey Phelps faces 30 years behind bars. Still, with cash and connections on the outside, can an overstretched prison system really contain him?

Helen Warner, once Kaz's lawyer and lover, is a rising star in Parliament. But has she made the kind of enemies who have no regard for the democratic process, or even the law?

Ousted from the police and paralysed by tragic personal loss, Nicci Armstrong is in danger of going under. Can a job she doesn't want with a private security firm help her to put her life back back on track?

A murder dressed up as suicide and corruption that goes to the heart of government unite ex-cop and ex-con in a deadly quest to learn the truth. What they discover proves what both have always known - villainy is rife on both sides of the law.

Another 'goodie'

Where does The Mourner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Really enjoyed this - was left a bit.....Urgh after The Informant so this was great to get the next 'part' from.....

Who was your favorite character and why?

Again, really liked 'Kaz' but actually liked Nicky more here too - maybe because of the differences in her life and who she is now.....but.....

Any additional comments?

Def worth a read if you liked the first book.....Although they both 'end' there is the very believable and continuing story and I am very much hoping for 'Volume 3' in this saga!! With some closure for a couple of our main characters too!

Amazing and fast paced.

What did you like most about The Mourner?

Loved the fact that it was as good and as action packed as the first book, I always worry reading trilogies that the books will go down hill after the first one but not so with this. It was just as action packed and fast paced as the third.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mourner?

When Kaz risked her life to try and bring Hollister down.

Which character – as performed by Lucy Price-Lewis – was your favourite?

Love the way she performs Kaz, she's a no nonsense Character and Lucy does a really good job of portraying her.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Bits of both really, it's more a suspense book than anything else.

Any additional comments?

Fantastic series so far, can't wait to read the final book in the series and see what happens. I will also look forward to anything else this author writes in the future as if this trilogy is anything to go by then we've got an amazing new author on our hands.

Brilliant Again

I was really looking forward to reading the follow-up to Wilkins' debut, The Informant, after listening to it. Kaz is a fascinating, complex character to read, so I was intrigued to discover the next part of her story.

The main characters - Kaz, Nicci and Joey - are supported by some great personalities who add to the absorbing sub-plots that surround the predominant case. It's through interaction with these people that more about Kaz, Nicci and Joey is gradually revealed.

That Wilkins is a screenwriter is evident in her writing; the attention to detail and wonderfully descriptive prose meant the book played out like a film in my head. All the sights, sounds and smells leapt to life from the pages - something not many authors can accomplish. I know I'd be a huge fan of a tv series adapted from this series of books.

Susan Wilkins is a fantastic thriller writer who stands out in the overcrowded market; she's a brilliant storyteller and certainly one to watch.
Lucy Price-Lewis was fantastic with the delivery of the story

Informant was much more engaging.

As soon as the book opened up with a character dying. I became disinterested with the rest. I did listen to the book until the end. I do love Kaz character. she is so full of spunk, also crazy most times. I believe she could work side by side with Nicci. I'm not sure if I want to listen to the 3rd book. I will have to check out the reviews.
