Kept me reading to the end

Not a bad novel, though I did find a lot of the attitudes displayed by people - especially towards the police a trifle overdone. No-one was 'normal', and it did rather stretch one's belief, as did the convoluted family structures in the novel!



I won't bother with this writer again. I did find the narration a trifle odd too - the narrator announced the chapter numbers as if they were earth shattering events

Dull

I have read most of Ann Granger's novels and enjoyed them very much, but what happened here I don't know. The story line is none existent, and as slight as it is, it's drawn out beyond belief. I couldn't have cared less about any of the characters. I was actually listening to this on a plane with no other choices otherwise I would have given up.

A great easy listen!

For anyone who loved and misses Granger's Alan Markby series this is a must! Fortunately Judith Boyd narrates again brilliantly and this is an easy cosy listen.

Rack, ruin and a fair read

I enjoyed the book. It wasn't the best but average. I loved the character of Uncle Monty with his eccentricities. The book did capture the atmosphere that it could of and that was my problem with it.
