Blood Red | [Quintin Jardine]

Blood Red

Primavera is enjoying the quiet life in an idyllic village on the Catalan coast of Spain. The attractive single mother and eight-year-old Tom, son of the late and still lamented Oz Blackstone, are popular figures in the tiny community. But her close friendship with the parish priest has eyebrows rising and tongues wagging. Then a dispute explodes with a powerful councillor who refuses to allow the village wine fair to go ahead. When his body is found, head caved in, some ominous questions are asked.

    "disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A more believable story, a better reader who knows how to pronounce Spanish


    Would you ever listen to anything by Quintin Jardine again?

    I will have to read the blurbs more carefully


    What didn’t you like about Hilary Neville’s performance?

    The Spanish pronunciation was pathetic


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Anything set in Spain has redeeming qualities

    "Primavera comes into her own"

    I wasn't taken with the character of Primavera when she appeared in the Oz Blackstone books but in this new series she is really good. A romp around Spain with her long lost cousin is unputdownable and the sexy honeyed voice of the reader Hilary Neville adds spice to the narrative. Most enjoyable!
