    "Great storytelling"

    This would have been a good book for reading at bedtime but thanks to the superb narrator this is an absolutely brilliant piece of theatre! I started listening to it on my train journey this morning and have not been able to put my mp3 player away since then. The narrator makes the characters utterly believable and draws you into the story completely. Would recommend the book to anyone.

    "Simply brilliant!"

    A great plot, a lot of which I did not see coming. Thought provoking and funny in parts. Make your own mind up but I loved it!

    "Interesting....."

    I must be way out of step from the rest of the people who reviewed this book. I found parts of the book to be laugh out loud where it shouldn't have been, and the characters, like their names unbelievable. Still it has enough really good reviews, so guess it was just not for me. I did like the narrator who did give the piece a bit more interest that it would have done otherwise.

    "Grim Necessity"

    The men with power act from necessity whether or not this encroaches on the life and liberty of an individual. The hero of this novel is fighting a losing battle it would seem but morality and justice to some extent do triumph but it is not a shining victory and he pays a high price for it. Do not let the beginning of the book put you off as the tale soon becomes absolutely gripping and you will find it hard to stop listening until the end. The book combines all the elements of a thriller with a journey into more serious moral and philosophical considerations. The sounding board for this aspect is the psychologist who probes the motivations of the Woodcutter and constantly seeks answers for human behaviour and reactions. The narrator is excellent and does an amazing job with the different accents and characterizations.

    "Enjoyable and loved the narrator!"

    The narration of this book was first class. I would listen to any book that he narrates. The book itself was very good. The psychiatrist, and her practice, was not true to life in any shape or form but entertaining nonetheless. The story was intriguing and full of twists and turns that drew me back to listen to a bit more, and made it difficult to leave the car, where I was listening, once I had arrived. i would recommend this book.

    "Amazing twists and turns. Brilliant."

    I am not often moved to comment on a book but this one had me interested and hooked from the beginning. This is one book I look forward to hearing again. Such a memorable story and wonderful imaginative story telling with great narration. Each character really did come to life for me. I really did not want it to come to an end. Thank you entertaining me.

    "Simply excellent"

    I have never read a Reginald Hill book before despite being familiar with Delziel and Pascoe on TV. This book is beautifully written, intriguing, and has good pace. The narrator is also excellent and brings so much to the book with his flawless narration and ease with which he changes characters.
