The Murder Investigation Team has problems of its own – and so does Geraldine Steel. A shocking revelation threatens her peace of mind as the investigation races towards its dramatic climax.
I was very impressed with the first book in the Geraldine Steel series and was anticipating many happy hours of listening when I found out that there were 4 books in the series. Unfortunately books 2 and 3 do not quite live up to the promise of the first book, although they are still an easy enjoyable listen with a likeable main character. The characterisation is pretty good in all the books but books 2 and 3 suffer from over simplified plots.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would easily recommend this book to my friends. It was an interesting story, well written and kept my interest.The narrator did a really good job differentiating between characters. I think her performance added to the story.
What other book might you compare Road Closed: Geraldine Steel Series, Book 2 to, and why?
Not sure which one as although I love murder mysteries that would be akin to comparing apples with oranges! I have also enjoyed trillers such as the Girl in the Ice and No Coming Back
Which character – as performed by Lucy Price-Lewis – was your favourite?
Too difficult to choose one over the other. Lucy did an exceptional job with each character.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
It was great being able to listen to the book in its audible format for times when my eyes were too tired to read the tablet or I was doing something mundane and could listen to the book.
