Disappointing.

Narration has been poorly edited . Words repeated in several places. Not the standard I have come to expect.

Great as always but slight unbelievable and implausible story with such experienced characters

I love listening to these and have followed all the books. This is just a bit unbelievable and implausible that the characters would end up in this situation, and also the storylines seem to often revolve around central characters. I stopped listening to Patricia Cornell ( sorry if spelt wrong) as I thought why don’t you all retire and the level of serious crime would immediately drop!! Make it about others and brilliant plausible detective work!!

Terrible…don’t waste your time

Dull, predictable plot, obvious who did what very early on, no tension. Cardboard characters - a bland, saintly wife and textbook goodies and baddies along with some generic stalker psychology thrown in. I would give it zero stars if Audible allowed me to.

Good listen

another good novel in the series, although it was a easy guess as to who was the killer from about half way through.

Good story well read

Fantastic story

I am new to DCI Lorimer and can’t believe I haven’t listened to these stories yet! Loved the plot and the characters and their relationships. There is much of life in this book that uses the detective genre as a vehicle for exploring complex issues that resonant. I shall be listening to a lot more of Alex Gray

A brilliant series.

I have now listened to the whole series of DCI Lorimer books, and what an enjoyable series it has been.

My only regret is I haven't got any more now to listen to, and will have to wait for the next to be written and presented on Audible.

Narration by Joe Dunlop is as ever perfect.

Thoroughly Recommended.

Fantastic storytelling and narration

I have read all the Lorimer novels by Alex Gray. This is my first listening experience and I was initially hesitant but I absolutely loved it . The narration was first class and I was completely immersed in the story.
