    When Mrs Bradley’s grandson finds an old diary in her rented cottage it attracts the interest of this most unconventional of detectives, for the book’s now deceased owner was once suspected of the murders of both her aunt and cousin. Does the missing diary finally reveal what happened to old Aunt Flora? Is the case of Bella Foxley really closed? And what happened to the boys from the local reformatory that went missing at the same time?

    What did you love best about When Last I Died?

    the narrator, she is really wasted on the thin story line


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    too convoluted, too many twists in the plot that strain one's credulity, a bit more straightforward action would have been better


    Have you listened to any of Patience Tomlinson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The heroine, Mrs Bradley, is depicted as a very clever woman. Then why does she make the most awful mistakes? Apart from that, it's a nice enough book, but not one I should like to read twice.

    Margaret Maron's mysteries starring Judge Deborah Knott have built a loyal following since debuting with the Edgar Award-winning The Bootlegger's Daughter. The series' 18th entry finds Deborah and her husband, Deputy Sheriff Bryant, teaming up with Lt. Sigrid Herald to track down a killer on the loose in their small North Carolina town. But as the hunt for the culprit gets more intense, they uncover long-hidden secrets that cast their investigation in a whole new light.

    If you could sum up The Buzzard Table in three words, what would they be?

    connection between classic crime story and moral questions about Guantanamo


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Buzzard Table?

    The culprit actually believes that CSI TV stories ans courtroom shows on TV reflect actual police procedure, caustic but true to life


    Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    all Deborah Knott novels, I think she is just fine


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

    No, but I didn't dawdle either, but that was what I wanted


    Any additional comments?

    But I like about all Deborah Knott novels ist the generally positive outlook, the books are really refreshing without being superficial
