Dead Men's Socks | [David Hewson]

Dead Men's Socks

Gianni Peroni is at a loose end. He's got nothing urgent to do but he notices that the pathologist has a busy day ahead: during the night two corpses were picked out of the Tiber. At first glance, it seems that the similarities between the two men end there. But then Gianni notices something very strange...

    "A Fascinating Day in the Life of Gianni Peroni"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are a fan of the Nic Costa series, you must give this a listen. Saul Reichlin's narration is perfect, as usual. Peroni gets a chance to move from his supporting role to being the central character in the story, and the listener has the pleasure of observing Peroni's old school detective work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Men's Socks?

    Seeing how Peroni handles the hot shot Commissario from up north.


    What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Every character has a unique voice, but Reichlin achieves this with great subtlety. I think I would even enjoy hearing Reichlin read the phone book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, particularly because it is short.

    "Peroni shows how it's done."

    With the regular crowd (Theresa, Falconi and Costa) away Peroni tasks himself with solving 2 murders, much to the annoyance of a new inspector from Milan. A must for all of you that enjoy the Rome series by David Hewson, and the splendid narration by Saul Reichlin. More please more. The cost is however a little expensive for this short story of 1hr 15 or so. An indulgent pleasure, - enjoy.

    "Mutch to short :) Gianni Peroni deserved this :)"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Men's Socks the most enjoyable?

    That an old dog can show young dogs how to bark :)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gianni Peroni because he can do this without being smug.
