Summary

A marriage is what you make it, isn't it? It's what you put into it. It's not just about love; it's about understanding another person's point of view. Sometimes there are things you find out about yourself and each other, which means the marriage has to end. Sad, particularly when kids are involved - but all pretty normal. Normal, that is, until there's a murder.

DS Jane Bennett and DI Mike Lockyer are called in to investigate one of the South London murder squad's most difficult and distressing cases yet - where family and friends come under scrutiny in the hardest of circumstances.

Solid Thriller...

What made the experience of listening to Trust No One the most enjoyable?

The narration.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jane Bennet...she is the real main character in the book.

What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She is a brilliant audio book reader, she brought the book to life and gave the characters very recognisable voices. I thought she was the best thing about the book.

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

No

Any additional comments?

I thought this was a solid thriller. It's not going to win any literary awards but it was an enjoyable listen. I thought the shining light was the narrator, who is brilliant. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes thrillers but it's not the best of the three books in the series.

Outstanding!

Got my first book by Clare Donohoe on Daily Deal and loved it. Now I have them all downloaded. I can't wait for the next one to come out. I have only one slight complaint, after listening to three books I still don't like the voice of DI Lockyer. While Imogene Church seems very capable of using male voices, the one she has chosen for this male detective is irritating in the extreme. I think he's supposed to sound sexy to match the detectives good looks, but he just sounds dull and stupid. There is just no real inflection or texture to the voice. I have heard Ms. Church use much better male voices and I just can't fathom why she has picked this voice for a main character. then again, perhaps it's just me.

Trust No One

Divorced forty-something dentist Richard Taylor is found dead by his two children, Harvey and Olive in his plush Gipsy Hill flat. What has happened to this once perfect professional family to make this atrocity happen? It's up to DS Jane Bennett of the Lewisham and South-east London murder squad to unravel all of the lies.

This is the third DI Mike Lockyer and DS Jane Bennett novel and it's my opinion that they're getting better. The personalities of both detectives are now incredibly well developed and inherently believable. DS Bennett's struggle with bringing up her young autistic son is a fantastic element, as is her guilt as a busy working mother.

The narrator, Imogen Church, gave a fantastic performance in my opinion. Highly recommended!

Interest and original tale

Quite enjoyed this as an easy listen. Good plot and storyline that keeps you quessing to the end. Not too enthralled by the reading. It is difficult to pull off using dramatic voices voices and unless it is done very well it is distracting and at times annoying. Afraid that this lady reader just cannot do male voices and the men sound like Fred Flintstone with a sore throat - perhaps not the best likeness but I'm sure that you get the message.

All in the Detail?

I was enjoying this until the author's faux pas about the insulin ....please check your facts and get the details right?

Third one all of them excellent

Again I loved this book just as I did the previous two. Good strong story entwined with the background relationships that continue. Imogen Church's narration is superb.

Slow and lacks content

What disappointed you about Trust No One?

After Richard Taylor was killed in Chapter 1 or 2, I found myself waiting for the story to start. I am now on Chapter 41. I didn't want to refund the book because it really seemed as though something significant was about to happen, but it hasn't yet and I only have 5 chapters left!

Has Trust No One put you off other books in this genre?

Yes. This is the only book in the series that I have listened to but I will not be purchasing the other 2.

How could the performance have been better?

It is strange that a female narrator is chosen for a book where most of the characters are male. Actually this became quite irritating.

A chic flick

This one is interesting to wade through. The story line develops slowly, allowing for all kind of local color description. It slows down too much in places. At one point I had time to ponder why a Brit would make a cuppa with BOILING water then hand it to a nice man recovering from stroke. Characters chat at length about their part in suspicious death. It is fun to be a fly on the wall at each interview.

Nice

Not bad. Not the strongest Lockyer story yet but a good listen anyway. Saw the ending coming miles off and narration is not her best but still worth a credit.

Irritating narration, incompetent detectives.

With a narrator that was beyond, claw my eyes out, irritating, detectives that couldn’t solve a crime even if the whole thing was on video, this was an extremely painful listen. Jane and Mike both grated on my nerve endings in this book. Jane’s lack of gratitude for her mother, that was at her beck and call twenty-four hours a day, her inability to resist a man that abandoned his child and her for 8 years made her very unlikable. Then there was Mike what was with his constant undermining of Jane’s leadership. He’s the one that put her in that role. I know they were trying to show he was suffering PTSD from Sarah’s murder and Jane’s near murder, but it just came off wrong.

DCI Lockyear and DS Bennett NEVER solve the mystery. If it weren’t for the consistent quality of Imogen Church’s narration, I would give up on this series. How can they always get it so wrong?

Excellent read!

Clare Donohue and Imogen Church...one of my favorite duos. Thanks for the intriguing story and a bit of history 're Jane and Mike. Imogen is too Mitch as always.

The characters have development well in this series and plot is good, bit of a weird end to this one, but keeps u guessing. Good performance, plays each character well.

I enjoyed them all.

Any additional comments?

This is third book that I've read by Clare Donoghue. I enjoy the intrigue in her stories very much. I, also, enjoy the narrator and I am very selective about both the author and the story teller. Imogen Church does a great job of impersonating the different characters in the story.
