    The worst that can possibly happen... has. A beautiful child is dead - defiled and murdered in a lonely graveyard on a fog-shrouded evening. It is the sort of horrific crime Chief Inspector Alan Banks fled the city to escape. But the slaying of a bright and lovely teenager from a wealthy, respected family is not the end of a nightmare. Lies, dark secrets, unholy accusations, and hints of sexual depravity swirl around this abomination like leaves in an autumn wind, leading to a shattering travesty of justice that will brutally divide a devastated community with suspicion and hatred.

    Where does Innocent Graves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't understand why people didn't like this book. Plot and characters were well developed. Narration was also terrific. The only down side was the rather abrupt ending. I expected a few more chapters at least!

    Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is at a loss: The daughter of her friend Taymullah Azhar has been taken by her mother, and Barbara can't really help - Azhar had never married Angelina, and his name isn't on Hadiyyah's, their daughter's, birth certificate. He has no legal claim. Azhar and Barbara hire a private detective, but the trail goes cold. Azhar is just beginning to accept his soul-crushing loss when Angelina reappears with shocking news: Hadiyyah is missing, kidnapped from an Italian marketplace.

    I've read all the reviews, and I understand why some people were upset. There is a lot of Italian in the book, but I found it very engaging to try to figure out what was said. George always provides enough context in the next few sentences following the Italian to make it perfectly clear!
    I love all the detail she provides about Italy. I thought the plot was very clever, with lots of twists and turns.
    I adore Davina Porter - she is my favorite narrator!

    When the brutally beaten body of a young man is found in an alley, Eastvale's Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks and his colleague, Detective Constable Susan Gay, have no choice but to lock up the three Pakistani youths who seemingly started it all after an argument in a pub. But they're out in no time, and Banks is in big trouble with the chief for risking a racial incident with the arrest.

    What did you love best about Blood at the Root?

    Plot is quite involved, as usual, but very well done. We see the beginning of the disintegration of banks' marriage. Narration is excellent. Quite enjoyed the whole thing beginning to end!


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    Perfect accents for each character. Well done.

    What Agatha expected to be a sparkling modern marriage in the middle of the romantic Cotswolds is turning out to be anything but. James Lacey, the love of her life, is proving to be a most irritated husband; he does not approve of her turning the laundry pink, and is equally censorious of take-away dinners. In turn, Agatha is quite put out by suggestions that James has been frequenting the company of his ex-lover, Melissa.

    Mary says: "Unlikely Heroine"
    "possibly the worst book i've ever read"
    Overall

    I don't even know if I can bring myself to finish it. The characters are all devoid of reason or depth and the main character is not just a loveable old rapscallion: she's despicable and totally unlikeable. AVOID this book. The plot is idiotic. This book has zero redeeming value. Read it at your own peril.

    New York Times best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith, winner of the first-ever Saga Award for Wit, has entertained millions with his beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mysteries. Now this phenomenally popular author introduces a fresh series, brimming with the charm and humor his stable of dedicated fans can't get enough of.
