Publisher's Summary

Whittaker passed the drinks over. “Anyway, it seems that he’s got himself into a bit of bother,” he continued. “A very serious bit of bother.” 

“Bother?” repeated Kendall. 

Whittaker heaved a sigh. “Yes you know,” he replied. “Trouble.” 

Kendall nodded. “Oh trouble, I get you,” he said. “So what sort of bother are we talking about?” 

Whittaker took another drink. “Well it’s a case of murder I’m afraid.” 

“Murder,” repeated Mollie. Whittaker said nothing, but simply nodded agreement. 

Another murder, thought Kendall. Just what I need. “Just stop right there, for a moment, and rewind will you,” he said. “Then let’s have it from the top, slowly.”

Great Read

A Case Of Murder (Kendall Book 6) was a good read by John Holt. In this book Kendall investigates a murder that gets personal. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

A case of murder

Most of the story is set in a small town where no one wants to open up to new comers. I don’t remember if the story has a year, but it has an older feel too it like a detective in the 20-40’s. The couple is a lot of fun and the story is detailed. I did feel like it was a bit slow paced. The narrator suites the story and pace.

locals versus imports

It really upset me that locals were more than willing to believe the worst about visitors strangers and foreigners, while denying to the bitter end that one of their own could be the culprit. I had another local character pegged for the murders, so I was wrong. Shame on the locals for making sad unfounded remarks about Bridget's memory. She was sharp as a tack. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Lie on the blarney stone

I love John Holt books with Kendall and Molly. Never a dull moment with the twists and turns of murder. Whether it be in Ireland or America leave it to Kendall and Molly to solve a case. Exciting always something new with the same old. Excellent writing, Excellent narration, read this book it’s a winner.

PI and twists

I throughly enjoyed this book. I found my self rewinding it as I missed something that was important. Definitely need to pay attention however well worth it. Jus as you think u know who did what there’s a twist to keep you on the edge of your seat. Also the narrator was on point with accents and sighs I felt like I was in the book!! Loved it

Good story in Ireland

I really enjoyed the storyline, plot and characters. The Irish accent left something to be desired but I'd definitely like to read more in the series.

Another great Holt book.

I really liked this book. Book 6 finds Kendall in Ireland, a place I’ve always wanted to visit, at least I did when I thought I was Irish. Holt does a good job of putting the reader in the location, and the narrator handles the dialect nicely. Kendall’s wit is, as always, entertaining and Holt’s storyline flows well. If you haven’t read John Holt’s books you should. He’s a talented writer. Peter John Borys is a good narrator. The two make a good team.

Twists and turns!

Loved John Holt's mystery. It was well-thought out and I appreciated the sarcastic humor.

Peter John Borys did a great job of narrating. He brought the characters to life.

Story within stories.

Like I’ve said before, copy / paste of the first review could have worked just fine reviewing the rest of the series of Kendall audiobooks that where written by the author John Holt.
I truly loved listening to each one of them for many reasons.
Starting with the beautiful stories and the ease of understanding it all, watching how Kendall grows from an unsecured Privet detective to one who travels the world solving crimes.
What I loved about this one was how there were at least three stories which had nothing to do with each other and still because of different reasons helped solve the whole mess and all that without complications making it easy on me to just enjoy a great story.

Full heartedly recommend this audiobook.



In exchange for an honest review I’ve received this audiobook.

Never just a holiday

I think this is my favourite in the series so far, although I haven’t listened to them in order.
The accents left a little to the imagination but the story was gripping.
The way it’s written means even though you know a secret before the team, the twist still leaves you hanging.
Really starting to love these books

First time listening to a Kendall story

Good story line. Great voice who was very fitting with the story and genre. Having read the previous Kendall books I felt it handled him well.

Got the next book lined up to listen to too.

I only have one minor niggle. The term 'heaved a sigh' was used a lot. I checked through my ebooks and it is in there too, clearly a Tom Kendall trademark. I think in the books when I read this I likely skipped over them, but much more prominent when listening to them.

I do like that Tom Kendall, whilst he is very good at what he does didn't solve things really super fast and it took him time to dig around and get to know the people first. it felt well paced in that respect.

Now on to the next one.
