The story is really good and David Thorpe, the narrator is good until he makes up different voices. Unlike, say, brilliant narrators such as Simon Prebble or Simon Vance or George Guidall, David Thorpe is really bad at doing voices. He should stick to his own voice, which is rather good and stop trying to modify it. It's so bad that it really gets in the way of the story, and that's sad because there is nothing wrong with just reading with one's own voice.
"A good plot."
First book by this author, it will not be the last.
If you are a fan of Jo Nesbo then give this a try.
"great plot will be looking more soon"
really enjoyed this book and happy to have come across another author as good as Val Mcdermid and Peter James
"New writer for me - very enjoyable"
Yes - gripping complex story
Kept me interested in knowing what was going to happen next
"Cracker of a London-set Crime Fiction Novel"
It's an excellent audio-book.
Some v interesting scenes in this book. Flashbacks to Uganda. But the budding relationship between the two detectives thrown together by their grumpy boss is excellent and bodes well for future books in the series.
The book is very well researched vis a vis conflicts in Uganda. The writer deals very sensitively with these disturbing issues.
Terrific book for those wanting an engaging crime fiction novel but one which covers new territory. Lots of great twists and turns and two terrific cops.
"a good mystery"
This audiobook has been in my audible library for a while , I think I bought it in a sale, (because it was highly recomended)
The second book in the series really apealed to me , but then discovered that I had the first in the series , it sounded very political , and I wasn't sure that I would like it , but must admit I really enjoyed it . Very exciting story. i'm now really looking forward to the 2nd book in this series.
Yes. Gripping. A detailed plot, which had several unexpected twists. Despite this, it was easy to follow. I also learnt a bit about eastern Africa and the politics.
Can't think of one. This is generally not my genre, but I will be buying his other books.
Believable, flowed with the plot, did not distract.
Can't recommend this highly enough. Fantastic story and performance.
"Eager for Carrigan and Miller book 2!"
A well paced novel that has good twists and turns. Sets characters up well to continue into another story. Feels like the first of many so lacks that certain something that comes with knowing the characters well - looking forward to number 2 and have a feeling 3 will be even better.
"A thoughtful story"
This book is not just another detective story it reflects on the horrors of war and the impact it has on those who get caught up in it. It is very emotive and the story builds nicely till its climate.
"Great story, poor narration"
I can't comment on the written version as I have not read it.
I thought the plot was well thought out and hung together until the end.
I thought the narration was irritating, the voices of the characters was simply not realistic, really distracting from the story.
No, I listened in stretches over about a week or so.
"not a good buy"
I didn't enjoy the story at all. ..the narrator was OK. ..I wouldn't recommend this book
