    Story
    "Brilliant"

    I have been totally gripped by this novel, the story was very complicated and held my interest right through. The main character was flawed as they all seem to be in today's crime novels, but he elicited my sympathy rather than my irritation - I liked him.
    The story kept me guessing until the end, and I hated putting this audio book down whenever I had to attend to something.
    Saul Reichlin is as superb as ever, one of the best narrators on Audible in my opinion.

    Story
    "Seedy Amsterdam, murder, kidnapping, new detective"

    Always a pleasure to listen to a thriller by Hewson and narrated by Reichlin. The central detective, Inspector Vos, has sunk into depression at the failure to find his kidnapped daughter, Anneliese. However, a new rookie police woman from the sticks, revitalises the enquiry, and the chase is on. Inspector Vos is a thoughtful detective, and could be compared to Morse. Interesting detective duo. Immensely enjoyable story excellently narrated by Reichlin.

    Story
    "Interesting Story with plenty of suspense.."

    Interesting Story but one I struggled to really get into and engage with the characters. Plenty of satisfying suspense and twists and a good ending.

    The reading was good, although at times I did lose track of things but maybe that's me being distracted.

    Well worth a listen .

    Where does The House of Dolls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved this book. The story was good and the characters were quite fleshed out. I have been to Amsterdam several times so was able to visualise the places by the descriptions.


    What other book might you compare The House of Dolls to, and why?

    Difficult to say, I would compare any of Nele Neuhaus, but not sure if they are in audio


    Have you listened to any of Saul Reichlin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    not listened to any other books read by him

    "Enjoyable and intriguing listen"

    I loved The Killing and bought this as a result. I was not disappointed. Saul Reichen is a great narrator and its easy for the listener to distinguish quickly between the characters. Nice to have Dutch names and places as a change from the usual Scandinavian ones too. I am going to continue my journey through the works of David Hewson.

    "A cracking good read"

    Two fabulous new characters three if you include Sam which I do! I thought Mr Hewson would find it impossible to improve upon his previous hero's I was wrong and I am delighted to be so. I have already put the next in the series on my wish list but it will be saved until I have time to savour it properly because if it is as good as this it will be impossible to put down. the Narrator has utterly NAILED it is they day.
