    Story
    "Brock is no artist, that's obvious!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The storyline is, as ever with books by Barry Maitland, a good one although DCI Brock meets some very strange characters this time. However the narrator is totally wrong - he gives Brock a voice that sounds young and uneducated which is not the impression I get of the character from Maitland's books. There are certainly enough bodies to go round and some very sick people with which he and DS Kola have to deal. There's a good twist at the end, so don't be tempted to peek.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns of the plot. Barry Maitland is an expert at this and No Trace is no exception.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tim Bruce’s performances?

    Only if it better matches the characters.


    Could you see No Trace being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Easily, except there's a plethora of detective series being mades for TV. I don't know that there is sufficient difference between Brock and some of his counterparts in other police procedurals currently being aired.


    Any additional comments?

    Barry Maitland is a good author, one of the best for this type of crime novel.

    "Great story"

    Missing child, a series of murders ...the mystery is unravelled with many twists and peculiarities. My problem with this listen is the narrator: he often seems unprepared for the next word in a sentence, thus making the intonation completely inappropriate for the intended meaning.
