    Story
    "Good old murder mystery!"
    If you could sum up The Burning in three words, what would they be?

    The story is mainly told by Maeve Kerrigan who is a strong character who though has great ambitions in the police force is a character who seems normal without major flaws which can often plague the main woman in a book.


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

    This was a book I had listened to after 3 very ordinary stories so this for me was a good, intriguing story line with interesting characters some of whom I'd like to explore further in the next stories written by the author.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ahh just love the lilt of the Irish.


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

    Not necessarily but I did enjoy listening to each chapter.

    "Story worth a listen"

    I enjoyed this audio book and liked how the story developed. I found some of the voices used in the narration a bit annoying (occasionally),but not enough to stop my enjoyment of the listen overall. This book should appeal to any 'crime novel' fans.I would like to hear more from this author

    "Excellent"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it moved between 2 narrators and the story was gripping. Not too long either. I would certainly recommend it if you like modern detective stories.
