Publisher's Summary

Evan Evans is settling into his role as Constable of Llanfair, a small town nestled in the mountains of North Wales. Here, he has been a mediator of the minor disputes of the locals, between competing ministers, country merchants, and seemingly every Welch eccentric throughout the region. But an unusual series of events brings unseen hostilities to light, and Evan realizes just how deep the townsfolk's passions and hostilities lie.

While the village of Llanfair has always been at odds with the neighboring town of Beddgelert, an intriguing archeological find in the nearby hills brings that rivalry to dangerous extremes, and creates a circus of local enthusiasm and gossip. The circus quickly turns deadly, however, when Llanfair's prodigal son, Ted Morgan, announces plans to erect an amusement park over the site's excavation. Soon, Constable Evans is drawn into a whirl of cultural pride, deception, and greed, and while he's at it uncovers the town's undaunted ambition - to earn the right to the longest name in the world.

With the warmth, charm, and wry sense of humor that won listeners' hearts in Evans Above, Rhys Bowen offers a delightful new installment to an already cherished mystery series: Evan Help Us.

    "Hooked!"
    What did you love best about Evan Help Us?

    Another great story from Rhys Bowen. This was the first in the "Evan" series I have listened to and it was great. it had a well created plot. Wonderful characters with clues into their lives from previous stories so I understood what was going on with out wishing I had listened to the other books first. I did not guess "who did it"! I love how her descriptions work well with my imagination and I could picture the village, scenery and characters.


    What other book might you compare Evan Help Us to and why?

    I love Rhys Bowen's other stories also - Molly Murphy series, the Royal spyness series and recently Farleigh's Field. I am a fan of good plots and detective / crime stories.


    What does Roger Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved hearing the different accents


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found it hard to stop listening! totally engrossing

    Great pace, kept me interested and guessing the entire way. I've been waiting for the audios to come out for this series for a while now and rewarded for my patience, definitely not a disappointment. Great job, Ms. Bowen!

    "Automatic Pass (so far)"

    Book 1 didn’t thrill me that much, I preferred Book 2 much more (even though I did find there were some annoying holes in the plot) so I am going to assume that this upwards trend will continue into Book 3 and by then I will be hooked on another great series.

    I think like with any series, you just need a little time to get to know the characters and their quirks and then after a few installments you find yourself loving them all because they are so familiar to you.

    Of course this is all based on the premise that the books are actually good and worth reading in the first place! I think these are.

    This series gets an automatic pass from me (so far) since it’s by Rhys Bowen. I love love lover her Georgie and Molly series, so how can the Evans series not be great?

    "Better than I remembered!"

    I read this series years ago and for a long time Audible only had one of the books available. Finally, they are catching up and adding other books in the series. This is a great series with interesting characters and plenty of twists and turns in the mystery. The descriptions of Wales and the village life make me want to visit. I really enjoyed the narrator and was delighted to find the story to be even better than I remembered it to be.

    "Evan Help Us"

    Great story! My husband and I listened to this book when we ate our breakfast. This was a great way to start our day because we could think about what would happen next, and talk about the plot.
    This is a clean story, nothing vulgar in language or scenes.
    We are ready to share listening to the next book!
    The narrator does a fantastic job.
