Ranks right up at the top. I am a great fan of the author and the series.
The scene in the graveyard. Satisfying end to a legal problem.
Simon Prebble is such a great reader. He never appears to be reading the book, rather he makes one feel like one is there!
I am a great fan of the author. Her characters are interesting and well fleshed out. The places where the books take place are well depicted and I enjoy the historical detail. The twists and turns of her plots are most clever. Always love the surprises.
I actually chose this book because it had a sequel but have no plans to read the next one. The premise was interesting. I liked the suspense. The tech stuff was fun. I wanted to find out what happened but just couldn't make myself listen to any more of the overly dramatic dialogue. If a superhero comic book could be made into an audiobook this would be it!
Note to self. Be more thorough in reading all reviews. Not everyone likes the same style.
Yes. Well read and well plotted. I am not usually a fan of short stories but these were a refreshing change. I am hoping that a future book will "star" this character.
Ellie, of course.
Am a great Cleverly fan. Her characters become ones friends, or lacking that someone to watch out for. Well developed and interesting. Glad to meet a new one.
Yes. Have been looking for the book for some time. Thank you! Harry's time in Australia is mentioned in later books. Have read all available in US and wanted the book and the background!
That being said, one can also tell it is an early effort. Though I truly enjoyed it I felt it, "ran on a bit", in some stages. A bit less polished than later work. Not as intricately woven as later efforts but then, that is usual for most series. Must read if you are a Harry Hole fan!
No, but I think he is a really an outstanding performer. Lots of accents, multiple characters, nothing seemed to escape his ability. A great reader! Added greatly to the book. I will look him up for future purchases.
Yes. Sanford has great style. Reading the next book is like reconnecting with old friends. He combines good mystery with suspense, drama, local places and humor.
Twists, turns, characters and subplots.
He really makes you one with the book and the characters.
I am a huge fan of G.M. Malliet. I would definitely try another book. Have greatly enjoyed the ones I have read.
Totally switched. Falling Glass. Adrian McKinty. Gerard Doyle a perfect voice for the story.
He has a lovely voice, just not suitable for this book. Lovely and too plummy! Seems to miss highlights of humor which this author is good at.
Not sure the main character is interesting enough.
I am sorry that the initial book on Audible from this author is a disappointment. I am a fan of her other books and am hoping that there will be more on Audible. A more suitable performer who could emphasize the humor and the spitefulness of some of her characters would be recommended.
Enjoyable book.Great start for a new series with interesting characters and plotting. Lots of intrigue, abundant twists and turns, and true to form Italian politics..Commissario Alec Bloome is a complex and likeable guy. Looking forward to more of him.
Once I got used to a very British voice reading an American/Italian detective I was hooked. The plot kept me listening even when the reader sounded like he was falling asleep. The reader was uneven and sometimes achingly slow but portrayed the various characters well and has a good voice.
