Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated new book in the bestselling DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

The body of an elderly man is found in an abandoned World War Two pillbox beside the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. With no obvious motive and no credible suspect, DI Nick Dixon starts digging into the victim's past.

The more he digs, the deeper Dixon is drawn into a case that takes him from the cave systems beneath rural Somerset to the heart of government, and threatens to expose a military cover-up at the highest level.

Blocked by a wall of silence, Dixon must unravel a dangerous conspiracy before the killer strikes again.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "This series deserves a wider audience"

    Death Sentence is Book 6 in the Detective Inspector Nick Dixon series. The first novel in the series, As the Crow Flies, was not very good, But the quality improved with each novel until the most recent three have been outstanding 5 star murder mysteries. Napoleon Ryan's narration is consistently excellent.

    Using Kindle Unlimited the first 5 books in the series, Kindle + Audible narration, are free to borrow. Without Kindle Unlimited but with Whispersynce for Voice, the books are $4 each for the Kindle and Audible versions combined. Death Sentence is a very recent release, so it is currently more expensive at $.734 for the Audible version.

    I recommend this novel as well as all 6 novels in the series.

    "Great book and awesome narration.."

    This is my 6 book of DI Nick Dixon and, overall, I’ve liked every book so far. I love Nick and Jane; they’re such a great twosome. Really like Louise, Lewis, Pearce and Dave. It’s always nice to see the same characters you’ve gotten used to in all the other stories.

    This was a very good mystery, with several murders that were up to Dixon to solve, and for the readers to wonder about “who dunnit,” all the way until almost the end of the book.

    I was about to worry that this might get too involved with “caving” like the first one did with “rock climbing,” leaving me totally lost as to what was being talked about. But this one wasn’t so bed. I understood the caving lingo better than the rock climbing. I will admit that I would never, ever be interested in caving, especially not in the wintertime; all the ice cold water underground and the darkness. Nope, definitely not for me.

    This does have swearing and the F-bomb was used 29 times. No romance whatsoever!

    As to the narrator: Perfect! Napoleon Ryan does an awesome job. Not only with the emotional reading but the voices, too. All the men’s voices are great but I love Dixon’s best. And the women sound exactly like women. I could listen to him read any kind of book, all day long.
