    For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting. Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him, for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets.

    RJT says: "Extremely well done ... mostly."
    "How not to read a book"
    Overall

    A good story read by an awful narrator. I am confused, is he reading the names of towns in an attempt to reproduce a medieval sound or is it that he doesn't now the correct pronunciation. I have been an avid user of Audible and as I am English I felt the author was let down badly in this effort.

    A #1 internationally best-selling author and recipient of the Gold Dagger Award, Ian Rankin has endeared himself to readers and won widespread critical acclaim for his much loved novels featuring Detective John Rebus. In Exit Music, the curtain is unquestionably falling on the long, controversial career of Rankin's famous investigator. But even as Rebus prepares for retirement, he is lured into one final case involving a murdered poet and a delegation of Russian businessmen.

    charles says: "I hope Rankin changes his mind."
    "Tom Cotcher as Rebus, a great book"
    Overall

    This was my first Rebus story and i now feel that for the rest to be as good as this was, they must all be read by Tom Cotcher.

  • The Naming of the Dead: An Inspector Rebus Novel

    Called "required reading for crime-fiction followers" by Booklist, The Naming of the Dead is Scottish writing sensation Ian Rankin's 16th thriller featuring Edinburgh's Inspector John Rebus. It is dark, complex, and utterly gripping.

    Zara says: "A good one"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    Tom Cotcher is Rebus, great story, as good as if it was read by Rebus himself

    First, there was the brutal abduction and murder of two young girls. And now a third is missing, presumably gone to the same end. Detective Sergeant John Rebus, smoking and drinking too much, his own young daughter spirited away south by his disenchanted wife, is one of many policemen hunting the killer. And then the messages begin to arrive: knotted string and matchstick crosses, taunting Rebus with pieces of a puzzle only he can solve.

    Jeff says: "The first in the series"
    "It's all in the Reading"
    Overall

    This is a great Rebus story, however, having already heard other Rankin books read by Tom Cotcher, who is fantastic, Ewan Stewart just misses the mark. Ewan;s reading would have been fine, but the quality of Tom;s rendition is so good, I now wish Tom were given the task of rerecording all the Rebus stories.

    At the time of the French Revolution, one of Britain's most skillful naval officers, Charles Saunders Hayden, is a young lieutenant, the son of an English father and a French mother. His abilities and his loyalty to the king of England are beyond dispute, yet his career seems doomed by his "mixed" heritage and lack of political connections. Consequently, Hayden is assigned to an aging frigate, the Themis, under the command of Captain Josiah Hart, a man known as "Faint Hart" throughout the service.

    Blackmac says: "Perfect for first timer"
    "Good to see the tradition continues"
    Overall

    I have read Hornblower, Kent and O'Brien, and now we have Russell. A very good story, which makes you hungry for the next in what we hope will be a long series of new exciting stories to equal "Under Enemy Colors".
