Author's ability NOT to interfere with the writing if that makes sense. He has to do an Indian accent but if not perfect it isn't too bad.
It is great, lyrical writing; it is still topical in terms of colonialism /imperialism and race relations; part of it is a gripping legal thriller.
No, it is the kind of book you want to draw out slowly to appreciate the writing.
One of my favorites written, well done by Audible.
The Scots accent for Rebus that I cannot reproduce in my head if just reading
Top 10, but maybe the mystery itself isn't as developed and tangled as he usually does it, so not a top 5. But the joy of having Rebus back and exploring another stage of his life (retirement) make this definitely worth a credit if you are already a fan.
Much better than Rankin's recent Complaints books; he is on firm ground with his old characters here.
It may be my favorite. It cannot be read in print because the Irish accent is so appealing, and the storyline is top flight.
Irish character's impressions of NYC.
Excellent Irish accent for me, I am no expert though.
Irish noir storms NYC underworld
It is the first book of a trilogy, and is the best one, although completing trilogy highly recommended. Caution on violence, it is not gratuitous but pretty harrowing.
Strong, new characters and mystery from Reginald Hill best known for his Dalziel/Pascoe series.
Who is good? Who is bad?
Yes, very suspenseful.
Great character development with well structured suspense.
You spend lot's of time in Dalziel's mind, whereas in other of the series it leans towards his more serious partner Pascoe. What goes through Dalziel's head and in that accent is hilarious.
Dalziel a totally original creation--so incomparable.
Wonderful addition to a strong series. Literary, lewd and suspenseful!
We finally spend time inside Gremache's head as he psychologically recovers from another mystery. We are also introduced to the atmosphere and history of Quebec City.
Walking in a snowstorm...towards whom??
He owns this series as he does French accents well and gives sensitivity to the lead character, Gremache.
This is a great addition to a great series.
Yes, it brings the police procedural to African belief systems for a really original read.
The lead character--you get inside him.
Yes, there are many complex elements you desperately want the author to bring together. And he does!
An occasion when a mystery introduces you to new cultures and mores, so you take away more than a mystery.
I enjoy Lee Child in print, but feel he becomes slow and amateurish on Audible.
Reacher is a great creation, a believable and intelligent "he man" for the job.
Slows it down.
Get in print.
Yes, because the narrator is so good he improves the story.
Perhaps Louise Tey, Daughter of Time, for learning about an historical period while driven by the story.
The tension the author builds around Cicero's speeches makes them much more interesting than they would be alone, and you find yourself begging for him to succeed.
If you like political thrillers, you will like this even though so far back historically. The growing tension between Cicero and Ceaser is particularly gripping.
Yes. Harris does well writing about international politics.
Maybe a le Carre novel with more bounce.
Harris seems to be able to write great books in any subject terrain. This one fully modern, while his Roman novels fully historical. Audible please get third Roman novel in series!
