    Max Moreton is a rising culinary star and his Newmarket restaurant, The Hay Net, has brought him great acclaim and a widening circle of admirers. But when nearly all the guests who enjoyed one of his meals at a private catered affair fall victim to severe food poisoning, his kitchen is shuttered and his reputation takes a hit.

    Story

    This book grabbed me at the start just like others by Dick Francis but it fell short in plot and suspense. The principal character is the victim of several failed attempts to discredit him or kill him but the reader never really understands why he is targeted. Not what I have come to expect from this author. The narration was good and kept me engaged enough to finish.

    Sir Stafford Nye's journey home from Malaysia to London takes an unexpected twist in the passenger lounge at Frankfurt: a young woman confides in him that someone is trying to kill her. Their paths cross again and again, and each time the mystery woman is introduced as a different person. Equally at home in any guise in any society, she draws Sir Stafford into a game of political intrigue more dangerous than he could possibly imagine.

    Tedious and meandering plot. I just could not get through it and called it quits.

    Convalescing in Sandytown, Dalziel befriends Charlotte Heywood who is researching the benefits of alternative therapy. With much in common, the two soon find themselves in league when trouble comes to town. Sandytown's principal landowners have grandiose plans for the resort -- none of which they can agree on. One of them has to go, and when one of them does, in spectacularly gruesome fashion, DCI Peter Pascoe is called in to investigate -- with Dalziel and Charlotte providing unwelcome support.

    Ellen says: "Excellent!"
    "I'm hooked on Hill!"
    Overall

    Entertaining as the quintessential detective mystery laced with delightful, humorous dialogue. This narrator, Johnathan Keeble, is wonderful, giving unique voices to the characters. I want to listen to all of Reginald Hill's books but there are complaints about another narrator and I can't even get through his online samples. Any chance that Audible can find more Hill narrations by Keeble? Buchanan and Dooley are excellent, too.

    Anne Beddingfeld wants a little adventure in her life, now that her father has died and left her alone in the world. But she gets more than she bargained for when, at the tube station, she sees a man fall onto the track and die. A man dressed in brown, claiming to be a doctor, pronounces him dead, then rushes from the scene, leaving a scrap of paper behind. The police call it an accident, but Anne, armed with the scrap of paper, decides to investigate on her own.

    Alan Winterrowd says: "Not the reader's fault"

    Overall

    I have read nearly all of Christie's books and I usually find the Poirot mysteries the most enjoyable, however, this may be my favorite by the author. It kept me guessing until the end.
