Another great story from MK Turner

Okay, I admit it--I'm a Meredith & Hodge fan. Turner always comes up with the unexpected in her plots and yet at the end, the outcome makes total sense. Patsy has gone off to a new career in this offering but is still with Meredith. Half the pleasure of these stories is their relationship. The other half is the intricately plotted storylines. The narrator is a good choice for these stories and performs them well. All in all, a winner.

Meredith and Hodge are outrageous

This the second book in this series and the characters just get more and more real. This novel can be read as a standalone but I would suggest reading Misplaced Loyalty first. It helps the reader understand the bigger picture with regards to characters and crime. This group of officers are challenging , rowdy and humorous. The suspense mixed with the subtle humor makes this a page turner. Lee Beddow does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life through narration. There are enough twists to keep you guessing through this wonderful read. I am hooked on this series

Another Great book.

I loved the first book so I had to get my hands on the second and the author did not disappoint.
I thought the narrator was better in book two, there was no pauses in odd places so it flowed a lot better and I am glad the author used the same narrator. I got used to listening to him from book one.

The mystery in this one is different compared to misplaced loyalty. This is told from multiple POV, including the killers, so you know who did it but not how. what I liked about this book is that we know we know who due to the evidence found yet the character does not fit the crime. So you start to doubt whether they have the right person in custody. I loved how the author did it because I kept doubting what I read and came up with different theories. Once we found out how at the end it was a suprise but an interesting concept. I understood the book cover now that I know.

Of course this is not just about the mystery but also about Meredith and Hodge. There is a big shock at the end that I did not see coming.
I am going to grab the next in the series to see how this pans out.

For 18+ due to some violence and profanity. There is no sex scenes that all happens behind closed doors.

Loved It!

I have read other books in this series and thoroughly enjoyed them but to listen and hear the characters come to life was excellent! There are many twists and turns that keep you listening and wanting to hear more. I guess there are two stories here, the relationships between the main characters and also the plot. Although one reaches a conclusion, the other leaves you more than keen to listen to the next book! Narration is a huge part of an audio book and Lee does an excellent job.

The best proposal I never heard.

With D.I.Meredith.And Patsie Hodge now officially a cohabiting item, one of them had to give up their p!ace in the Bristol police criminal depatment- and it wasn't going to be Meredith. To his initial horror, Hodge makes a sideways move into the privatesector, to join Chris and Sharon's successful P.I. company as a partner. There's a new boy in the team, too, young, red haired, fast tracker Louis Trump who just happens to call the Super 'Uncle David'. There will be murders to solve and an unpleasant character to route out: but first they must deal with Patsie's stalker.

This is the second in theRewith and Hodge mystery series although it can be read easily as a stand alone. The real pleasure of these books, and this is no exception is the marvellous and realistic interplay of the ongoing relationship between the two principal protagonists, sometimes fighting with each other as they continue to fight crime in this excellent British police procedural. And it is not just the lead characters who are given a realistic life story, in varying degrees all emerge as far greater than mere paper cut outs. This is further enhanced by the narratkr, Led Bedow, whose down to earth E blush voice breathes life into them all, with individual voicingS for the numerous personalities, and mostly with good accents. A fine, low key performance which lets the writing itself shine.

I am very beholden to the rights holder of Ill Conceived, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. As with book one, I really enjoyed this story set in Bristol, England although the action could take place I many large towns of cities. A clever 'slice of life's which brings great characterisation and dialogue, crime and who-dun-it?, together with thrills, the odd tear, romance and humour. Great fun. A good read. Recommended.
