    "Absorbing"

    This is an excellent listen, the narrator is really skilled and captures the mood and intrigue of the plot. I couldn't put it down and literally listened from beginning to end in a couple of sessions. Brilliant plot - certainly recommend - but do not want to give anything away - the plot will keep you guessing from start to finish.

    "Fantastic, best audiobook so far this year"

    I adored this audiobook. The story is superb and the narration wonderful. The prologue is a bit strange but it all fits together wonderfully. I don't think the blurb does the book justice.

    Good story - well written. Beautifully read by Jonathan Keeble, would like to get more books read by him.

    "A book that kept me guessing"

    Will keep this brief. I'm not familiar with Reginald Hill, but I loved the narrative. I will be sure to read/listen to more. Also, and very importantly, the narrator was flawless. If you'll excuse the accent of the protagonist (which is easy for most of us - was consistent but slightly innacurate) the voices were all distinct and the narration had the right inflection and pace. To be honest, I picked this book because I knew the narrator was good - and wasn't dissappointed. Another reviewer referred to walking their dog longer and more often while listening to this. I also did this...

    "Excellent storyline and twists and turns"

    Good pace and I liked the narrators use of accents, except his Glaswegian which was iffy at best. Wolf Hadder was a likeable hero and Reginald Hill's descriptive prose set the Cumbrian Fells alight in all their glory, damp, rugged and entrancing. One of the best audiobooks I've come across in a long time.

    "Original Theme - to put it mildly"

    Jonathan Keeble really brings this very entertaining book to life. He has 'Hadder' to a 'T'! And the other characters, male & female, come away from the page into a great story, - a novel slant on poor local boy makes good, marries rich girl, gets well and truly 'shafted' and plans his revenge. End of Part 1, where I am as I write this, leaves you hanging on for much more - and there's still 8 hours to go in Part 2!

    "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.

    "great listen"

    I listen to a couple of books a month and always choose unabbridged as you get so much more from them. This is in my top 3 without a doubt

    "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!
