I loved this series completely, but unfortunately now the 5 immortal brothers have found their mates and defeated the 'old one', perhaps the winning streak is over.. Mac was a great character, and the plot works, but I never warmed to the female love interest. I kept waiting for her to redeem herself but it never happened. Not a bad book just never had the heat and spark of the previous five books.
perplexing amusing mystery
great plot that kept me guessing and great characters with witty dialogue
please reply to this message, I reached the end of chapter 9 and the story ends abruptly just before the climax in a way that cannot possibly be intentional, I really want to hear the end of this story.
i really enjoyed this audiobook, anf found the story very intriguing and well read. However in between chapters 5 and 6 there is a change in reader and a story about ninjas an D&D. I kept listening because the story itself goes back and forth in time and different characters so I thought mabe this was a new element, but it was too weird, and thankfully it went back to 'The Bone Garden'. This aside I highly reccommend this audiobook.
I did enjoy this, as do all the Dalziel & Pascoe novels, but here it feels like the sequel to a storyline I haven't read, something about an unresolved serial killer (?), and the previous book of the series is unavailable from audible.
Hugh Fraser reads beautifully and this story is classic Agatha Christie with lots of red herrings and twists and turns. My one comment to audible.com is that around the 2.5 hour mark there was about 10 seconds of technical glitchery in which every second syllable was garbled.
Otherwise really really great.
