    "Suspenseful"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was quite suspenseful and eery at times but not overbearing. This one had me glued to my headphones.

    "It was OK"

    This book did keep me listening, although the latter half was definitely a lot less involving than the first half, and the whole genesis for the murders required a complete suspension of belief (unless you accept as fact that a heretofore solid citizen can be derailed into a psychotic killer within days after learning of a decades-old event). Also, I still want to know what the episode was that split the three siblings completely asunder in young adulthood; unless I dozed off, that was referred to but never explained, and since some of the plot hinged on the fact, it needed to be. But Anna Bentinck has a very pleasant reading voice (I will look for more of her work), and I wanted a nice, long story to listen to during a day in the garden, and this book filled that bill admirably.

    "Intriguing read"

    I have read many crime novels, and found Thicker than Water quite refreshing, as the story unfolds in quite an unnusual way. Each victims story is related seperately, and each one is obviously targeted by the same killer, the connection between them only becomes apparent quite late in the story when the perspective of the story changes from the victims perspective to the killers, making an intruiging read. Would recommend to any crime thriller fans.
