    The former King of England, Edward II was murdered in Berkeley Castle, near Gloucester, England. In 1326, Edward's wife, Isabella of France, led an invasion against her husband. The following year, Edward was made to renounce the throne in favor of his son Edward. This was the first time that a king of England had been dethroned since Ethelred in 1013.

    Ian says: "Excellent introduction of British History"

    Overall

    I love the way the book chronicles the history of the kings and queens of England. If you have an interest in the English Monarcy and/or some of the major turning points of England's history, this is the audiobook for you.

    Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick doesn't like what he sees. A doctor's muscles were deliberately slashed to cause long-term damage; damage that will prevent him from becoming a surgeon. Evidence points to a personal grudge, until a spate of similar attacks leaves Resnick looking for a killer. Frantically trying to stem the panic that's spreading throughout the city, he soon discovers that there is such a thing as having too many clues.

    Overall

    This is the second John Harvey novel and I have to say this wasn't as good as the first. There were so many characters introduced that there wasn't enough room in the plot for all of them so there were times that the book jumped around just to make sure they all got a mention in the book. The plot was dry and did not take advantage of the unique plot. Finally the narrator put so much reflection in his voice throughout the narration even during the dramatic parts of the story that it was hard to get through. I fast forwarded through a lot of the dry parts of the audiobook.
