As Peter James continues the story of Roy Grace I am loving the intriguing past snippets that he loves to dangle in front of the reader. His missing first wife...her psychiatrist sessions leave you constantly dangling. His new fiancé and their beautiful baby Noah and their fates in this story were nail biting. The main police story is fascinating and brilliantly written allowing me to enjoy the plot till the very end.
Karen Maitland takes us on a journey of a terrifying time in world history her descriptions of the disposals of those who have died of the plague is heart wrenching. The group of travelers who are fleeing the plague are very unusual and each has lived or are living a lie. As each lie is revealed there are remarkable occurrences some more believable than others.The final revelation and twist is worth the wait!
I was hesitant at first when listening to the beginning of the novel and its subject matter, however Conrad Jones really does know how to write a gripping tale that has you asking questions and pointing fingers all the way round.
It was a great story line and the twists and turns. Connelly explains the legality of law proceedings with expert skill and is able to blend them into the story brilliantly. Thoroughly enjoyable!
Simply splendid, such easy listening.
Everyone deserves Justice!
I still love the short connections made with Harry Bosch.
No, I wouldn't jump at reading another book by this author, I found the development of characters very flat and one dimensional, at times confusing. I am not sure if my confusion stemmed from the narrators mix of characters voice changes.."the countess" in particular. I am sorry to say that I didn't persevere to find out who carried out the macabre murders.. Best of luck to those who do persevere.
Confusion and disappointment, something lacking.
The story is mainly told by Maeve Kerrigan who is a strong character who though has great ambitions in the police force is a character who seems normal without major flaws which can often plague the main woman in a book.
This was a book I had listened to after 3 very ordinary stories so this for me was a good, intriguing story line with interesting characters some of whom I'd like to explore further in the next stories written by the author.
Ahh just love the lilt of the Irish.
Not necessarily but I did enjoy listening to each chapter.
I would love to listen to it again but I am sorry George the narrator sounded like he was whispering throughout - maybe it's my old ipod.
The intrigue, the family plots, the twists and the agony of family money and power can be felt as Christopher unfolds his story to us.
Only to the narration but I will read Christopher Smith again.
I just loved listening to this story as it was a classic in it's formulae. Little tweeks through the story make it a good read.
Jane is a great character and so are the others around her. The murderer is a surprise and that was a nice twist but on hindsight there had been clues!
Kate Maquire continues her story in this book and its great to travel with her as she solves another confounding mystery. Graham Masterons imagination is definately gory and most definately in parts gross but at the same time I wanted to know what and who were behind those masks. The effort that he puts into every death is truly amazing and horrifying and the next death worse than the last it can make the jaw drop in horror!
Though there have been similiar story lines Lincoln Child tells a good story. I enjoyed the characters - Lash and Tara, who for once don't land up together (sorry not giving the plot away really)
The plot is well told and that does make it worth listening to all the way to the end as you sort of figured out early one who the main culprit was particularly when Lashs' personal details seem to go awry.
Loved him as Lash..Barret has a good voice for story telling and is very easy on the ear.
Give it a go and even though you may know how it will end - it really is worth it!
I love the characters - the Women's Murder Club - all of them are so unique and it's enjoyable to be part of the crew.
It's fast and has a furious pace that enables the reader to enjoy the storyline that keeps you on your toes.
Hold onto hats and enjoy the ride!
