Publisher's Summary

Luke Barber went missing from his village, leaving no clue to his whereabouts or why he left. Now, three years later, Luke’s father hopes ex-cop Michael McLaren can find a trace of Luke, alive or dead.

As McLaren pokes through the case details, he wonders if the pressure of succeeding in tennis or music, or his upcoming marriage, was too much for the lad and he simply ran away. And McLaren’s suspicion may be correct, for he soon is assaulted and left for dead - a hint that he’s upset someone connected with this case.

McLaren unearths the lies and false identity shoved at him, and uncovers what became of Luke, a discovery aided by idolatrous love and an ancient stone man.

Intriguing Mystery!

Jo A. Hiestand weaves together an intriguing mystery filled with twists and turns that kept me riveted right from the beginning to the shocking end! There were many surprises revealed about the different characters in this well written story and it was difficult to put this one down until I found out what was going to happen next. I certainly wasn’t expecting some of the shocking revelations, that truthfully had me break down in tears! I haven’t listened to the previous books in the series however I didn’t feel lost at all as this story was easily a standalone. There was some reference to previous cases the odd time but it never made the story confusing at all. Callum Hale was a joy to listen to. His variety of voices and accents for the many characters were excellent and all the emotion he put into the story made it extremely enjoyable to listen to. Hopefully he will narrate the following books in the series. I have no hesitation in recommending this book in the least. I am actually looking forward to see what the author has in store for Michael McLaren in the next book!

Callum Hale brings the story to life

Summary –

Three years ago, Luke went missing. His father hires Michael McLaren to discover if Luke is alive or dead. As McLaren investigates, he suspects the pressures of life got the better of Luke and he just ran away. Lies, deceit, false identity and more spurn McLaren too close and someone tries to silence him. Will the assault quiet McLaren or will he root out what happened to Luke?

Narrator’s overall voice –

Callum Hale is a superb narrator, one of the best I’ve heard. His voice creates the imagery needed to follow the story. His soothing British accent works perfectly for this story.

Does the narrator fit the characters?

Callum uses different dialects for each character which is so helpful while listening. There were many times I would close my eyes and could picture what was going on. Callum also invokes emotion while reading. I found myself getting carried away into the story.

Narrator’s reading style –

Callum’s reading style is the perfect tempo, allowing the listener to be fully invested in the story.

Narrator’s impact on reading experience –

Callum makes this one of the best books I’ve listened to. Everything from his pacing to the inflection in his voice to the recreation of the characters to the emotional impact on the listener, all combine to an excellent reading experience.

Narrator’s pacing –

Callum’s pacing is slow in parts, quick in others, which comes across as natural ebbs and flows of the story. It’s a wonderful performance.

Audiobook flow –

The flow of the audiobook is right in line with the flow of the story. I immersed myself in the mystery and thoroughly enjoyed it.

What makes this audiobook unique –

What a superb performance by Callum. He becomes McLaren, at least for my imagination.

Would I recommend this audiobook –

YES! It’s such a wonderful listen, especially for fans of British mysteries and mysteries.

Great narration and content

I have completed the audio book “No Known Address.”

The narrator, Callum Hale has a great voice and uses different accents for the characters. He made the characters very real. His reading of the ending was very emotional and put me right there with them. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the surrounding areas that different parts of the story took place.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
