I loved the first two audio books she wrote and was gifted the paper back of The Lost Man for Christmas. I enjoyed it so much and wanted my husband to enjoy it so we are listening together. Of course I have listened to the end already, while working at home, and was not disappointed by Steve's telling of this gripping story.
Highly recommend this in either format.

A good listen

I couldn't put it down even though it was predictable after a point.
Glad there were not more details of the sadistic abuse perpetrated.
A happy ending makes me happy.

Hmmm,

This tale was alot rougher than others I have enjoyed. Didn't like the bad language but acknowledge it fitted the characters. Might not listen to new stories if the author goes down this path again.

I loved the farm setting, identifying with the landscape and life.
The story had a number of threads which had me guessing how they would come together till the end.
I am glad Detective Burrows made an appearance in this story, though I am not sure when he divorced his previous wife.
Highly recommended with satisfactory resolutions.

An unexpected delight.

This tale proved to be one I could not stop listening to. The descriptions put you in the location without being a distraction to the characters. The ebb and flow of life, it's joys and struggles are real and gripping, and as in life, the outcomes unpredictable.
I will listen again.

It's ok

Having read a previous title by Tea Cooper I was looking forward to the dual timelines in this story.
I struggled to persist through the early chapters because of the boring narration. However the interesting storyline persuaded me and I was able to override the voice and finish the book. The ending was satisfactory.
Not sure if I will attempt another audio by Casey Withoos.

I enjoyed these light hearted gentleman sleuths. The narration is spot on, and the plots interesting, but you can't take the characters too seriously. Good easy listening series.

A good book

This book deals sensitively with the horrors Corrie and others faced during the 2nd world war. Throughout the story Corrie's faith journey is a strong theme, and Jesus is lifted high. The book is moving and encouraging. Suitable for family listening.

Kept me guessing!

The story was quite plausable and yet the twists and turns kept me guessing throughout this Aussi drama. As an Australian I had no trouble with the narrators rendition, and thought it lent authenticity to the descriptions of the Australian bush and the characters.
