    "Creepy Killer!"

    Wow! Interesting read. Enjoyable long listen that took me down surprising roads, some I am still travelling down in contemplation. Not much about the investegation, instead you are "in the head" of the criminal and detective and what drives of them.

    "Loved this book"
    Would you listen to The Ladykiller again? Why?

    Yes. I really liked this book. The story kept me wanting to know just what was going to happen next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really have a favourite, I enjoyed it all.


    What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Yes definitely. Annie is a great story teller & brings it to life.


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

    It didn't make me cry, it did however have me looking behind me every five minutes whilst walking my dog haha..... no, really!!

    Story
    "Not for the easily offended"
    Would you listen to The Ladykiller again? Why?

    Quite probably as I feel I might have missed some of the finer details - that said it is a story that bears a second read anyway.


    What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    An excellent narator, varied charactors each with their own little quirks - I always feel this adds much to the telling


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

    No, this is a book to be enjoyed when you can relax and take it on board.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for anyone offended by bad language - that said it is in context.

    Story
    "TEDIOUS"
    What would have made The Ladykiller better?

    I found this story initially fairly good but did not like the narrator....then the story got tedious and I stopped listening about a dozen chapters in. Not recommended


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting was the characters initially. Least interesting was the way I lost interest in the characters - in particular the Police style of working seemed poor compared to other authors desciptions


    How could the performance have been better?

    Nasal narrator did not appeal to me


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed


    Any additional comments?

    I know Martina Cole is a best selling author. It is probable that I was simply spoilt by my favourite author - in hardback and audiobooks - Peter James is much superior

    "Best Martina cole book ever 😍"

    well i really enjoyed listening to this audiobook , it was like watching a serial killer being made right before your eyes fascinating. i felt a degree of sympathy for the murderer which i guess is what the author wanted. But then he'd commit some other atrocitie and the sympathy would be gone. this storyline made me want to keep listening at any opportunity as it had me hooked. the narrator was gteat to and her cockney accent was pretty good. so this is an amazing purchase and would deffinately recomend this audible book.

    "sheer brilliance read.."

    I was captured immediately with George.. the narrator captured his persona perfectly.. so much so I was terrified of him but also fond of him! very disturbing I know but that's how brilliant she was.
    the story line was sharp. alluring. breath holding at times!
    simply loved this book!!

    Great book from Martina Cole. Really interesting to understand things from the killers perspective. The narrator is top class too.

    Story
    "Shallow characters."

    A story about a very nasty serial killer calls for deep and dark narrative. The lack of atmosphere is enhanced by the narrator who reads as though this is a children's bedtime tale. The detective's unlikely relationship with a stereotypical gangster is given equal weight to the main plot - how she managed to reach Chief Inspector is the mystery to me! I managed to listen to the end and was gratified to find an unusual twist or two. Overall, a good plot poorly executed.
