    Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He’s a murder detective with an extraordinary case clearance rate. He’s obsessive, instinctive, and intense. Nobody who ever stood at his side has a bad word to say about him. And yet there are rumors that Luther is bad - not corrupt, not on the take, but tormented. He seethes with a hidden fury that at times he can barely control. Sometimes it sends him to the brink of madness, making him do things he shouldn’t - things well beyond the limits of the law.

    "not for late night or public transport"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Luther to be better than the print version?

    not sure


    What did you like best about this story?

    it give a back story to how he became the man he is


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes but it should have been idriss elba doing it:)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    some of the stuff is really gruesome, really the tv show has some scary stuff, this book is way way way more gruesome, hearing the narrator narrate how the villian butchers his victems is not a calming read, every hit from the disabilitating hit to the knee, the hits to the face, the well you get the gist of it

    don't read this in public transport people will see you flinch and if you read at night, well sleep might not come easy

    Ben Aaronovitch has stormed the bestseller list with his superb London crime series. A unique blend of police procedural, loving detail about the greatest character of all, London, and a dash of the supernatural. A mutilated body in Crawley. Another killer on the loose. The prime suspect is one Robert Weil; an associate of the twisted magician known as the Faceless Man? Or just a common or garden serial killer? Before PC Peter Grant can get his head round the case a town planner going under a tube train and a stolen grimoire are adding to his case-load. So far so London.

    "there is a sting at the end"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Broken Homes the most enjoyable?

    the 4th book in the peter grant series ventures south of the river, with our heroes having to face (or faceless) not 1 but 2 enemies.

    The story has some nasty suprises waiting and aaronovich manages to keep a lot hidden by leaving some very obvious things out in the open, only at the end you see how the obvious and the hidden combine

    clever

    as always the style and accents of holdbrook smith adds greatly to the story and even takes in the difference in lesley's voice as she had another operation

    The bits of info on london reveal (once again) how much knowlegde and research aaronovich has.

    Fun to read even if you will end up cursing at the end

    so mr aaronovich go away and write another one


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes, there is a very obvious bit of the plot that makes you think "peter you blind one, connect the dots" only to find out that there is a lot more


    Have you listened to any of Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    the rest of the series, he has a good voice, giving life to a copper of african desent, a classic english gentleman, a seaside girl and many more

    brilliant


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    this time its personal
