    "Loved it!"

    It took me about a chapter to start really understanding the character dynamics and I was hooked! This book rocks and I am only disappointed that I can't listen to the others.

    "It depends on how you like your crime..."

    If you like your crime to be gritty like, say, Simon Kernick, this is probably not for you. If, on the other hand, you're more a Midsomer Murders or Daziel & Pascoe fan, then this could be right up your street. It's a good story and well narrated but the premise is unrealistic and the plot has one or two holes. Having said that, it's an enjoyable listen (as are Elizabeth Corley's other books) and not too demanding. Perfect to chill out with!

    "A complex web of deceit unravelled"

    I enjoyed the previous book (Requiem Mass) by this author and was not disappointed by this story of the next murder case for DCI Fenwick, and DSs Cooper and Nightingale. As in the previous book I felt I was accompanying the police officers on a case as evidence was uncovered, suspects interviewed and the internal politics of the police force were acted out. It's a long book and, apart from an unrealistic section of psychological speculation, was an engrossing narrative. I needed to concentrate at the beginning of the book as an array of characters are introduced during a family gathering as a Will is read and I wasn't sure was whom, but as the story unfolded they began to crystallize in my mind's eye.
    The narrator is good, which helps differentiate the players in this complex web of deceit.

    "'unputdownable'"

    This was my first audio book & from the moment I started listening I was hooked. Totally unputdownable!
    The story line had some unexpected twists but I had an inkling early on who the culprit was. The characters were believable some playing a bigger part than others. I was unsure of the relevance of some of the characters but perhaps they were in there to confuse or throw the reader/listener off the scent. It worked & made me think again at times who was doing what!!
    I've spent a few nights, lunchtimes & my car journey to and from work 'plugged in' to this book. As I said, unputdownable.
    A well written book.
    My only disappointment was the narrator - I just didn't particularly like his voice.

    "A Great Listen"

    DCI Fenwick is the main detective character (also in Requiem Mass)in this book. I listened to this one first, in fact, this was the first book I listened to at Audible. Enjoyed it so much I then downloaded Requiem Mass which I should have read first. Although it's not a sequel there are references to characters and events in Requiem Mass. The only thing stopping me downloading Grave Doubts is that I already have the book waiting to be read at home - will be taking that one on holiday this year.

    "Couldn't put it down"

    The title of my review says it all. Thoroughly enjoyed this - found myself listening to this at every possible opportunity. Although it is pretty clear who the "bad guys" are I don't think it in anyway detracts from the story. Very well narrated.

    "Disappointing"

    Highly implausible with cliched, hammy narration - more Dixon of Dock Green than contemporary thriller. A long somewhat tedious haul, although it did pick-up towards the end. A very poor listen considering its cost.
