    Story

    Drugs. Extortion. Slavery. Organized crime is fighting for a hold on John Rebus's peaceful Scotland. And when Rebus rescues a young Bosnian girl forced into prostitution, he breaks a policeman's golden rule to never get personally involved in a case. Add to that the hunt for an elderly Nazi accused of slaughtering an entire French village, and Rebus wonders just how evil humans can be - until his own daughter is mortally injured as a gangland warning for him to back off. Then even a dedicated cop like Rebus might make a deal with the devil to find the culprit. Not for justice. For revenge.

    Julie Jones says: "John Rebus,what can I say?"
    "Way too Long and Convoluted."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The author attempted too many topics from local gangsters, to ex Nazi criminals to senior citizens importing drugs to east European sex slaves to Japanese Yakusa gangs; too much going on.


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

    Cut it down in subject matter. Rebus has always been enjoyable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Page?

    Most anybody else. The main accent for Rebus was ok, but the narrator trying other characters was grating to the ear.


    Was The Hanging Garden worth the listening time?

    Just barely.

    Keith Stewart, a retiring and ingenious engineer, could not have been happier in his little house in the shabby London suburb of Ealing. There he invented the mini-motor, the six-volt generator, and the tiny Congreve clock. Then a chain of events sweeps him into deep waters and leads him to his happiest discovery yet.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Trustee from the Toolroom to be better than the print version?

    Perhaps. The narration is terrific.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a story about a person with integrity who loves his occupation, and everything about it. A principled man.


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

    The narration can enhance a good book, or kill it. In this case, Frank Muller does a terrific piece of work.


    Who was the most memorable character of Trustee from the Toolroom and why?

    Stuart, the main character. He is an honest man with enormous integrity.

    It's the early 1980s in Belfast. Sean Duffy, a conflicted Catholic cop in the Protestant RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary), is recruited by MI5 to hunt down Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber who has made a daring escape from the notorious Maze prison. In the course of his investigations, Sean discovers a woman who may hold the key to Dermot's whereabouts; she herself wants justice for her daughter who died in mysterious circumstances in a pub locked from the inside.

    If you could sum up Hidden River in three words, what would they be?

    While the story line is good, what stands out is the narration. I've listened to this narrator, Gerald Doyle, just for his work. He does most of his narration for this author, Adrian McKinty, and together the work of the author is superb.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    What made the experience of listening to I've Got Your Number the most enjoyable?

    Besides having a very good story, the narration brought the story alive, and I listened with a lot of chuckling and guffawing. Loved the accents and the humor behind the story.
