This book has it all: murder, intrigue, boyhood adventure, family drama, romance, humour and more. Read perfectly by the narrator. You’ll love it.

Ruth Rendell always writes a good story and this narrator is spectacular. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it.

A great book. Well written. Riveting story lines. Really good narration. You won’t regret this one.

I enjoyed this book. Great Australia story, all the better for being set in my local area. This writer is talented. Recommended.

Best in the series. I enjoyed this DCI Daley story very much. The touches of humour made me lol and made it just perfect. Hoping for more.

The narration has ruined this audio book. The speaker does loosen up a bit as it goes along but his voice is so stiff and formal he sounds a lot like an old fashioned BBC news reader. The female characters dialogue is especially unfortunate. The story was enough to keep me listening though, so over all it’s a three from me.

Lacking

Another two star reviewer here has said it better than I could. I agree with that reviewer. This piece of writing misses the mark on every level and the narration is no help at all. By the end I was getting anxious to be done listening and no longer cared whodunnit.

The thrilling sequel to Birthdays For the Dead. You must read the first book to really get the best from this one but it’s a great read anyway. Brilliantly crafted story with great characters, narrator is amazing.

But worth it. With twists and turns galore, plenty of blood, gore and depravity, these poor characters are really put through the wringer for our entertainment. Chilling to the end.

Great!

I enjoyed this instalment of the Zoe Boehm novels immensely. Overlooking some of the slight improbabilities, it’s an engrossing story, skilfully written and narrated. Bring on more! Mick Heron is a great writer.
