Dull and Tedious. A true disappointment after the generally interesting earlier offerings by Ms. King.
I KNOW this is fiction, but I didn't really BELIEVE it was when listening to it. The historical and geographical material King includes is precisely enough to add to believability without making it seem like a textbook. The characters are dynamic and engaging and the plot is well-constructed. This is the best book in the Mary Russell series so far and I am eager to start the next one. The narrator does an excellent job differentiating the characters and I am convinced this is better listened to than read. Highly recommended to both history and mystery enthusiasts.
Interesting characters, good story. Would have liked a bit more history of Israel and Palestine.
Recommend for any interest in Russell - Holmes story.
Love the series so I was committed to reading this one. But could have been skipped.
love her talent...easy to follow and feels like you are there watching every move she makes.
I really like this series. The descriptions of people, places, and things are truly beautiful, plus, it's Holmes and Russell. I've enjoyed these books very much.
Beware, intensely distracting and gross mouth noises at the ends of phrases and some words. If there's a pause, there's a disgusting noise. Story what you would expect from series. Voices for characters and accents not really enjoyable, but fine.
Thank you both author and performer. A great deal of research and history was evident. No mushy muck drivel here. A solid, deep, impressive story with wonderfully human characters.
I like the Mary Russell series, but this one was really long and got boring. The story seemed to meander and was more like a travel documentary than a mystery story. I lost track of the story line multiple times. And having it out of sequence with the other stories was confusing. Not one of her best.
