This book was a very easy listen, quite a simple tale which didn't take too much imagination, quite good to pass a couple of hours.
"Amusing with a little twist"
Enjoyable & amusing story, narrated well & whilst I had guessed the ending there was a little twist I hadn't seen coming.
"Could A Murder Be Less Perfect!"
It is a slow, easy listen.
The most interesting part of the book was the way in which the author sketched just enough of the characters to be credible.
Paul has a relaxed, unflappable delivery. It is very soothing and in stark contrast to the murder.
I think that this book could and probably should, be turned into a short drama.
A short, quite clever book. Most of it obvious really. Strangely, that was what helped to make it, intriguing.
"easy to follow quick read"
In the middle, it was a good book and easy to follow.
I wouldn't beable to compare as its the book like this I've read, its completely different to the Roy grace series of Peter James
The scene where Joan realised that her affair chap was no different to other men
don't understand question so can't answer
"easy listening. I listened to while running"
Really enjoyed the storyline and characters. will def purchase more peter james audio book !
