Some people just cannot read books. l am increasingly aware for myself how sensitive and inflexible l am in regard to poor readers and their ability to destroy a book. So profound is this for me that l am unable to actually hear the story as the voice dominates it for me.

This has occurred with the book

I usually enjoy Carol Wyer's work - but not now!

I have have had at least 6 goes at listening to this book and l have never got passed the beginning of Chapter 3. I feel like throwing the Tablet - it is the voice - no way can this person read. She has killed it dead for me to the point I simply cannot tolerate to listen at all My reaction is visceral.

Sorry Carol Wyer.

If you are into crime fiction you are likely to enjoy this read/listen too.

I am feed up with many author's creating their fictional leading DCI's as harbouring tortured horrific pasts etc etc etc Boring. This is refreshing change.

I wouldn't purchase this book. Have a loan from your library!

Patricia Cornwell is without doubt an obsessive compulsive about weapon and cyber details and persists in demonstrating her knowledge through her books. Her famous Scarpetta Series began to fall victim of her obsessiveness too. The last books of this series where the same idea was to compressed time so that all maddness took place in 24 hours or so. It becomes irritating to read a whole book like this.

l congratulate January LaVoy for her excellent reading of this work as she deserves it 100%.

However in the case of Spin it is a positive bore with obsessive detail, far fetched storyline, collapsing time detracts from the story. On refection l still cannot actually tell you what the hell the book is about.

A disappointing outing from Cromwell.

I have up to now enjoyed this series from Rachel Lynch. But I began to question my respect for this series and Bk 8 has confirmed this is the end for me as it seems to have become a "goody twoshoes" series.

I cannot recommend this book at all.

l was extremely disappointed with this book.
1. so predictably fanciful
2. such shallow characters
3. so childish
4. slim plot if any
5. and the new bandwagon of bi-sexuality

In short not worth the cost of a credit

Not one of Eve Dallas series l can recommend

This one is way too far fetched to be of any interest or pleasure.

Also l did not try to finish the book too silly. l skipped through it - do not buy use your library to decide.

A total fantasy book. The categorisation in Audible needs to reflect this more accurately than it does as l purchased the book on the basis of crime not fantasy.

Definately not my type of book - not one to recommended

This is a Goodie Too Shoes book!

If you are looking for nothing to challenge your mind but while away sometime then you could say this is an okay read.

But if you like to be sat back of your heels and you have to do lots of work too then this ain't for you.

I will not be reading/listening to an other books in this series.

I was fooled by the hype about the Ziba series

The reader did a good read dispite a very staccato story line that was so difficult to follow. l had to give the book 6 attempts to finally finish the book.

Again I say again - good fiction must be believable and this outing is far from this - please find another series do not waste time or money on this series
