Publisher's Summary

When a mint copy of the final album by Valerian - England's great lost rock band of the 1960s - surfaces, all hell breaks loose. Finding this record triggers a chain of events culminating in our hero learning the true fate of the singer of Valerian, who died under equivocal circumstances just after...or was it just before the abduction of her two-year-old son?

Along the way the Vinyl Detective finds out what happened to the missing child, and it wasn't what anyone expected - or wanted - to hear.

    Story
    "2nd time around"

    I loved the 1st book. The characters were great and the link in with music and vinyl worked well. This 2nd book carried on for another adventure and was a really cool mystery. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope a 3rd book comes out!!

    Story
    "Bit quirky but fun listen"
    What other book might you compare The Run Out Groove to, and why?

    Can't think of a book but ...a bit of a low key Colin Bateman, which means funny in a dry way and rather addictive


    What does Finlay Robertson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Didn't notice the reader which means he must be good!


    Any additional comments?

    Easy to listen to in a good way

    Story
    "I am bereft to have finished"

    This is the second in a series that ticks all my boxes. Vinyl, cats, mystery, coffee and charity shops. Fantastic. I enjoyed it a little more than the first book. Andrew, what do I have to do to get you to write another very quickly?

    "Even better than the first Vinyl Detective Mystery"
    Would you listen to The Run Out Groove again? Why?

    This was one of those books that I couldn't wait to finish but regretted it when I did. It was great fun from beginning to end and had me chuckling out loud on several occasions. I was surprised to find how much I had come to regard the characters as friends.

    An easy and rewarding listen - well written, equally well narrated, and definitely one of my favourite audiobooks.

    Story
    "not as good as the last one"

    Shame this didn't match up to the last book for me. The story wasn't as good. I will check out the next one, as long as the Author drops the Cleanhead nickname, it's worn thin in this book and used too often

    Story
    "A throughly enjoyable and clever follow on from Written in Dead Wax"

    As I said in the title, I found this to be an enjoyable listen with a lot of clever parts. The plot and characters were interesting and engaging.

    Performance wise; job extremely well done! Thank you. The characters feel distinct and their personalities come across well.

    I'd recommend this - in fact, I did do last night.

    Enjoy!

    Story
    "Sex, drugs and Rock and Roll"

    This is a story of the search not of a record but of a person or rather a child of a rock star who died young of the usual excesses, or perhaps not...

    The story has a host of colourful characters and witty dialogue, but was not as good as the first book. Still all is forgiven because we catch up with friends and the cats - Turq is the saviour and show-stealer.

    Narrator was good and I would probably look for the next story in this series, but won't expect it to be as exciting a roller coaster mystery as the first book.

    Story
    "An excellent sequel"

    This book begins by tying up loose ends in his previous novel. The story is entertaining, and includes a very amusing kidnap (no spoiler) and a truly bizarre plot that the author maintains well). Many of the characters reemerge and don't disappoint. As a vinyl fan I sympathised with ( most of) them.

    Well read and thoroughly recommended.
