Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in the teeming heart of London is a man on a lethal mission. His cause: a long-overdue lesson on the importance of manners. When a man gives a public tongue-lashing to a misbehaving child, or a parking-lot attendant is rude to a series of customers, the "Manners Killer" makes sure that the next thing either sees is the beginning of his own grisly end.

When this Manners Killer starts mailing letters to the Southeast London police squad, he'll soon find out just how bad a man's manners can get. The Southeast is dominated by the perpetual sneer of one Inspector Brant. And if anyone is going to be getting away with murder on his patch, it'll be Brant himself, thank you very much.

    "Always love Brandt"

    This book just keeps going. Always love the continuous action. It makes the miles fly by.
    One problem. The tracks are out of sync at the beginning. You have to be patient, because eventually it all makes sense.

    Story
    "An interesting yarn of tough and atypical cops"
    Where does Calibre rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best Ken Bruen book I've read, but the mistakes in the recording of the novel detracted greatly from the listener's enjoyment. (missing chapters and chapters presented out of order). Errors certainly worthy of a full refund!
    Very disappointing indeed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Calibre?

    When a disgraced officer takes murderous measures to restore his reputation on the police force and rid the city of a monster set free by the courts.


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    Doyle has a gift for accents and truly seems to become each of the various characters he speaks for. Very well done.


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

    There were some surprising twists and turns in the plot that caused me a sharp intake of breath on occasion. Some of DS Brandt's irreverent comments made me chuckle as well. What a unique character he is. I love it when a rather bad guy does good things.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read. Wonderfully unique characters. Not the typical detective story and all the better for it. Now I'm compelled to read all the Insp. Brandt novels. They are a great addition to Ken Bruen's Jack Taylor stories.
