A small time crook stumbles upon a body hanging from a tree; a veteran from a Belgian marching band is killed in a hit and run incident and another dies of an apparent heart attack.
Excitement on the streets is feverish as the city prepares for a rally to celebrate the return of Pope John the 25th to his home town. With the whole world watching, the security has to be bulletproof. But is there a chink in the armour and does Bob Skinner have the inner strength to find the answer to the biggest question of all?

This author had been recommended by a friend who has read quite a few of his books. I decided to purchase one as an audible. The narration was so slow I quickly became bored. I guess I haven't really given the author a fair go, but I couldn't even get past the first chapter. So much depends on the voice in audio -- pace, pitch, intonation ..... When James Bryce went into character mode, he was much better.
"Stay of Execution: Bob Skinner Book 14"
I found this book harder to listen to than some of the others in the series.
Bob Skinner as usual. he is a strong character with the personality to match.
Maybe I am just getting used to listen to the narrator
Not this time
Not one of the better books in the series
