Publisher's Summary

Liverpool, 1961. A group of young men come together seeking fame and fortune as the fledgling sounds of the Swinging '60s take root in the city. Soon, Liverpool becomes synonymous with the groups and music that shape a generation. 

Liverpool, 1999. Skeletal remains found in the docklands lead Detective Inspector Andy Ross and Sergeant Izzie Drake into a journey through time as the investigation takes them back to early days of the Mersey Beat.

Whose bones laid beneath the mud of the River Mersey for over thirty years, and what links them to a young woman missing for the entire time?

Glad I decided to give this a listen

I like Golden Age British mysteries, but decided to give this more modern mystery a listen. Here's what I liked about it...
** Superb narration
** Well written story with descriptive details that set the various scenes
** Protagonists working together without antagonism or pettiness.
** Identifiable protagonists employing reason & sound speculation to reach conclusions
** Contains some violence, but not gratuitously. Unlike many modern day mystery books.

Now I'm off to listen to book 2.

Great Characters - great ending

As others have mentioned the writing in his book does sometimes seem a little amateurish but I found the overall story made this a great listen. By halfway through the book I found myself totally immersed in the story of the main characters and willing them the outcome they deserved. I found the narration only added to the depth of the characters and really brought to life a very emotional end to the book.

Poor writing

Very badly written, felt like a school kid’s effort. The amateur sounding narration did not help at all. Part way though the second chapter was as far as I got, so I couldn’t comment on the story itself, which did seem interesting from the description.
