    Martin Carter is having a crook day. His home life's a misery, he's been retrenched by the bank, and everyone's forgotten his birthday. But a million-dollar payroll, a pistol, and a split-second decision change everything. Hurtling north on a motorcycle with the intriguing Faith, Martin encounters a mysterious hit-man, a new-age bike gang, a reclusive media mogul, and the booby-trapped mountain hideout of an old schoolmate.

    Judy says: "Delightful"
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    A great light hearted story that takes you on a journey through Australia with a lot of dry humour. Peter Hosking as the reader adds a lot to the story and it is a great listen on a long drive or flight.
    Highly recommended.

    It's 1967, the summer of love, and in swinging Melbourne Detective Sergeant Charlie Berlin has been hauled out of exile in the Fraud Squad to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl, the daughter of a powerful and politically connected property developer. As Berlin's inquiries uncover more missing girls he gets an uneasy feeling he may be dealing with the city's first serial killer. Berlin's investigation leads him through inner-city discothèques, hip photographic studios, the emerging drug culture, and into the seedy back streets of St Kilda.

    What made the experience of listening to The Diggers Rest Hotel the most enjoyable?

    Back to the old days

    Narrator does a good job with the story and it potrays life in country Victoria and the laid back Australian way

    A few twists and turns along the way to the plot and the story itself makes for a great listen

    Recommended


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie - down to earth, common sense and willing to take people as he sees them


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - but with over 8 hours a good listen when commuting

    Lisbeth Salander lies in Intensive Care with a bullet lodged in her head. She will face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her release. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Salander is now ready to fight back.

    Olga says: "A Fabulous Finale"
    "Fanatstic"
    Overall

    Great final book that wraps up the series well.
    The narrator adds to the story with a great effort.
    In a way it was disappointing for the book to end because it was so good.
    Highly recommend all in the series even though they take a while to listen to. However you soon become involved and wanting more.
    Worth every cent
