Great!

I love the characters in these books. The author has made them authentic and multidimensional. The dialogue has the dry humor you can imagine in a workplace. The plot is excellent and the story moves along such you hate to stop listening. The narrator is outstanding.

Disgusted

Though the characters are likable and a continuing storyline is sometimes acceptable, this ending g shows contempt for the reader (listener). Not sure I'll continue the series.

Is the reader the problem?

The book is s decent work for lovers of British crime, but I think a reader with a graver delivery would complement it better. The reader is skilled, but uses a lilting, light tone that detracts from the subject matter, murder. I found myself unsure whether the author meant to be tongue in cheek, or it just sounded that way. I may have to read, rather than listen, to this series in order to form my own opinion.

Wonderful

Loved this story. What a great mystery that had me guessing wrong so many times. The narrator was berry good. Each personality shown through beautifully. The ending made me want the next one now. Shame on you author! 😈😈 way to keep your readers on their toes.
