Seven years later Wolf begins to talk to the prison psychiatrist and receives parole to return home. But there's a mysterious period in Wolf's past when he was known as the Woodcutter. Now the Woodcutter is back, looking for truth and revenge...

    "If I could give this 6 stars ...."

    Such an engaging book, the story line had me baffled but gripped. The characters, especially Wolf, have complex believable characters. He's flawed but kind, ruthless but compassionate, and clever. The book roller coasters from bliss to a black swamp of despair and gradually climbs, via a steep path, back to contentment. I can't recommend this strongly enough.

    "Exciting and thought-provoking"

    Found this was a good tale, well-told (by both author and narrator). It's hard to talk about it without revealing details of the plot, but suffice to say that I DO want to talk about, quite animatedly! Felt a bit bereft when I'd finished this. Highly recommended.

    "Fabulous"

    Great story and well read by Jonathan Keeble. Well constructed story with heart warming, heart wrenching depiction of characters and events.

    "Outstanding"

    This is an excellent story brilliantly written and outstandingly narrated by Jonathan Keeble. It's a cliché to say that one didn't want a book to end but it holds true here. Keeble's narration deserves special mention because he brings the characters to life wonderfully. It is one of the best - if not THE best - narrations I've had the pleasure of hearing. I normally listen to audiobooks while driving or walking. This is the first one I've sat down and listened to parts of at home because I was so caught up in the story that I just had to keep listening! Highly recommended.

    "A study of psychiatry and life"

    I've not read a Reginald Hill book before but enjoyed the TV adaptations of Dalziel and Pascoe. I was drawn to this book by the positive reviews and it richly deserves them - it's a detailed and, certainly seems, excellently researched study of characters and motivations. The main character, a charismatic high flying businessman with a shady past, is accused of awful crimes which I spent most of the time willing him not to have committed whilst a nagging doubt sat at the back of my mind - the big "what if...?" the second main character, a prison psychiatrist, is also personable and interesting. It's brilliantly handled by the narrator who's voice is wonderful.

    "Unusual and compelling"

    I thought this was very good. There's a real feel of the North and the moors the bleakness in the character that fits in with the country round him. You are kept guessing throughout the book which threads different tales together until the satisfyingly unexpected conclusion.

    "The Woodcutter - Excellent"

    I really enjoyed listening to the Woodcutter. I thought the story was well thought out and narrated really well. I was definately hooked from the first and found it an absorbing listen. So much so that I became quite antisocial as I listened at any available opportunity. I found I liked the character Wolf even though he was complex and flawed, I just couldn't help but like him. He was strong just like a woodcutter. I became involved in this book, feeling angered by those who betrayed him especially his ex wife and her mother. I liked his father in law.



    I enjoyed listening right up to the end and was sorry when it had finished.

    "Cumbrian mystery"

    Mystery thriller partly set around Wasdale in the Lake District which provides some interesting scenes. Lurches into melodrama at the end but I enjoyed it. Well read by Jonathan Keeble.

    "Terrific book"

    There are very few audiobooks that have left such a hole on completion as this one. Great story, great characters with great narration. Cannot recommend highly enough. Have bought a paper copy as a Christmas pressie, but not telling you for who
