This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery. Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series.

Would you listen to West Cork again? Why?

Yes! It is wonderful - However, audible readers may not be familiar with podcasts and will be concerned with the very different format. I am a voracious podcast consumer and I would list this as among the very best.

What was one of the most memorable moments of West Cork?

I think hearing the real voices of the citizens and investigators of West Cork. Especially as an American who had no idea of this case.

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

They are not characters but real people. They were all excellent.

If you could give West Cork a new subtitle, what would it be?

Real Crime Podacast

Any additional comments?

Please give this format a try it is excellent and the editing is superb.

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

What did you love best about The Cuckoo's Calling?

I really liked the narration and I thought the story was good and a bit twisty, which I like.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes....did she kill herself...or not??

What about Robert Glenister’s performance did you like?

He did a great job with all the characters!
