    One of Dublin's most powerful men meets a violent end— and an acknowledged master of crime fiction delivers his most gripping novel yet. On a sweltering summer afternoon, newspaper tycoon Richard Jewell—known to his many enemies as Diamond Dick—is discovered with his head blown off by a shotgun blast. But is it suicide or murder? For help with the investigation, Detective Inspector Hackett calls in his old friend Quirke, who has unusual access to Dublin's elite.

    Story
    If you could sum up A Death in Summer in three words, what would they be?

    So the darkness of Timothy Dalton is gone and instead the narrator sounds about eleven years old. I don't know about the story because I couldnt listen past the first chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I couldn't listen to it, but I love Benjamin Black so I gave his part of this 5 stars.


    What didn’t you like about John Keating’s performance?

    He puts the emphasis on the wrong places in the sentences. He does not convey any meaning to what he says. He has an annoying voice. He isn't a good actor and it's an incredible disappointment after Timothy Dalton. What happened to him?


    Any additional comments?

    That's about it. Isn't that enough?

    Two years have passed since the events of the best-selling Christine Falls, and much has changed for Quirke, the irascible, formerly hard-drinking Dublin pathologist. His beloved Sarah is dead, the judge lies in a convent hospital paralyzed by a devastating stroke, and Phoebe, Quirke's long-denied daughter, has grown increasingly withdrawn and isolated.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yep. Great story and made even better by Timothy Dalton's dark voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were multi dimensional and were revealed in the story in an interesting way -


    What does Timothy Dalton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is just so rough and gruff and dark. Perfect for these stories. In addition he seems to understand the material and the words. His inflection are on target. He's a good actor.
