    "Good characters and great reader"

    I've listened to three Dalziel books narrated by Colin Buchanan. He's a fantastic reader. Spot on the accents, and really makes the characters come to life without the "Shakespearean overdramatization" which characterizes many of the British readers. I highly recommend this book, Deadheads, and Exit Lines. Have fun! I would rate this book a 4.5 if I could.

    "So so"

    I've heard such good things about this series, my expectations were high. But i found it to be kind of flat, the main character a bit too blustery, and in all, average. Narration seemed fine.

    "What fun!"

    Colin Buchanan does an excellent job narrating the story. Andy Dalziel, at loose ends while on vacation, untangles family entaglements, solves a murder, and enjoys a romp in bed with a potential murderess. A thoroughly enjoyable "read"!

    "Unfair judgement ?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No.
    I don't think I took Dalziel's character. I purchased this book after thoroughly enjoying The Woodcutter, and perhaps wasn't ready for something that reminded me of the TV program Heartbeat.The performance was excellent, but I feel like I've watched a play instead of having completed a book...
    The jury is out on this series.... more evidence required....!
    I would recommend The Woodcutter !!


    What could Reginald Hill have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not sure.


    What does Colin Buchanan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Colin's accents are very good and his excellent narration brings the story to life.


    Did An April Shroud inspire you to do anything?

    Try another in the series - the reviews say they get better ! Maybe I need to get to know Pascoe....


    Any additional comments?

    Wanting to work through the series, but with Colin Buchanan as the narrator, I selected this book to be my first. Maybe I should have chose another....
