I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
I think that Hilary Caine is very fun and entertaining. She is however predictable but with murder mystery there is only so many ways it can go... Alot of fun and keeps the brain guessing.
Harry nile has been a favorite radio production of mine my whole life. Jim French Productions does a wonderful job with the shows and the performances are always great!
I have listened to Jim French and Harry Nile my whole life. I LOVE having it on my phone there whenever I want a listen. The voices are great and bring back wonderful memories of radio.
I am an avid reader and listener. I listen to a lot of mystery novels, and especially love the "cozies". I also like most non-fiction!
I really liked McDermid's female PI, Kate Brannigan, in the two earlier novels I have read, and I totally enjoyed this BBC dramatization.
The narrator does a great job as Kate, who is a spunky and creative detective with fighting skills and connections to the less-savory characters of society. The characters are not really deeply developed, as this is a Kate and Plot driven plot - but it's a good, light listen for sure, has some fun twists, and excitement thrown in, too.
If you are not familiar with dramatized audio books - please note: this is not a full reading of the actual book, but rather, the book has been adapted into a script that is performed by various actors. Kind of like watching TV, but no need for visuals. Hence, dramatized books are quite a bit shorter than an actual audio book. Personally, I really enjoy a good dramatized book - often for lulling me to sleep at night instead of dumb TV shows; sometimes they are perfect for a shortish drive; other times they just fill a blank space while I'm cooking or whatever. In any case, all the BBC productions I've listened to are extremely well-done, and this one is no different.
