Mourn Not Your Dead | [Deborah Crombie]

Mourn Not Your Dead

Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Sergeant Gemma James are sent to suburban Surrey to investigate the murder of a high-ranking police officer. Alastair Gilbert was bludgeoned to death in his kitchen, and the list of potential suspects is long--the man's arrogance earned him widespread enmity both in the village where he lived, and in police circles. But Duncan and Gemma must put aside their personal feelings--for the victim, as well as for each other--to solve the most troubling case either has faced.

    "Great listen!"

    Good story and good narration. Well worth a credit. One of those books you can read again next year and enjoy the second time around.

    Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader/listener. My ratings are opinion only.

    "Decent listen"

    A good listen, predictable to the point of deja vu, better than average narration. On the whole, worth the price of admission.

    "A slow start that finished well"
    What did you love best about Mourn Not Your Dead?

    The ending of the book was much better than I expected it to be. I don't want to spoil anything for the readers, so that is all I'll say.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not necessarily on the edge of my seat, but very curious. I was drawn into the story and wanted to know "what happens next?" I was not disappointed!


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

    No, but I was happy to know that this cozy mystery would be waiting for me when I had time to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to reading (listening) to more books by both the author and narrator. Thank you for an enjoyable time!

    I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha

    "Definately Worth the Read or Listen"

    I like this book becasue it exposed me to the English culture very simply & effectively. The story was very interesting & kept my attention too. I like books like this that read out like a Sherlock Holmes mystery, always connecting the dots. Being a part of the detectives search was also educational. If I were a reader who likes a good mystery novel I would say the audible book is the best choice, because you get that charming English accent as a bonus.

    "Good story, good narration"
    Where does Mourn Not Your Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book rates solidly in the upper middle. It was interesting enough to keep me engaged and wanting to know what happened next.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really. The plot was a little bit slow compared with some thrillers I have read. BUT, that is not a bad thing. I liked the pacing of the story and I liked how the author took time to develop the characters a little bit more than is done in many books these days.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Deehy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm not sure.


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

    Neither.

    "OK Story"

    Not one of my favorites but I did listen to all of it. Mystery - who done it. British. OK but forgettable. I didn't really care about any of the characters.
