Smart Mystery

Hill writes with depth and clarity. His characters come alive because of his ability to describe multi-facet personalities. His mysteries are complex, well written and in the end, satisfying.

classic hill

Good story, great reader - what more can you ask for? I wish it had lasted longer. While the case being investigated is disturbing, the writing is so good that I laughed out loud in a couple of places. If only all audiobooks were so enjoyable.

Ah, Reginald!

Pascoe and Dalziel are always such an readable pair, and when Colin Buchanan narrates, they can't be beat. I wish Audible would release (in some cases, re-release) more of their stories, and they SHOULD ALL BE READ BY COLIN BUCHANAN. As in, do us all a favor and retire the ones read by Brian Glover.

Another surprise!

I try to anticipate the stories and field of knowledge based on the titles and teasers offered by Audible, but I invariably find myself in a page=turning frenzy as I am led through of unexpected clues, events, and characters. This novel was no exception.

a trip back to the TV series

this a Dalziel and pascoe I hadn't heard of before but it is as good a tale as the others if not my favourite. the narration is spot on and listening makes it almost as if Warren Clarke himself were doing the voice.

Engaging intelligent writing and interesting story

A detective novel which amongst many other gems throws in a reference to Mary Wollstonecraft gets 5* from me!

Interesting story and a great narrator

What did you like most about A Pinch of Snuff?

Very easy to listen to.

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

I've listened to several books narrated by Colin Buchanan and he is consistently good. I really like his narration style, he doesn't intrude into the story and acts all the different characters well. I am particularly impressed that he manages to act the parts of female characters believably - a rare talent.
