disappointing

Love Peter May's books but this one didn't grab me. I got fed up hearing how every woman he came into contact with fell at his feet. Really Peter? The storyline was a bit fantastical and seemed more about the various love affairs the protagonist had going on than the crime. Yawnful!

Backlight blue

A gripping story line throughout. A clever balance of suspence and intriguing family influx of the protagonist.

excellent again

Well narrated, probably one of the best in the May audible series.Excellent storyline too l with good atmospherics but not dwelling on a thread line for 3 chapters like many similar thrillers do.

Reasonably good story

This IsEnzo McLeod book 3 and the series is already pretty formulaic and predictable. As ever the cops are portrayed as incompetent and lazy as naturally Enzo outdoes them. (Hmm...on second thoughts perhaps it’s realistic) The plot is fair and the story is well narrated. However I agree with another Enzo reviewer that it seems any female he meets he has has laid, is laying or will lay. This is highly unlikely as nobody likes old geezers with pony tails. On top of this he is incredibly chauvinistic. The author has given him stereotypical and cliched Scottish attributes which is a bit yucky. His team of helpers don’t actually help much but are mainly devices used to explain his thinking and the plot. Enzo is pretty resilient if annoying . He gets hit on the head a lot but never seems to be the worse for it. I’m not sure I’ll bother with book 4 as I think it will be the same as books 1-3

Enzo in trouble again!

Enzo is diagnosed with terminal cancer, one daughter nearly dies in an attempt on her life and his other daughter's boyfriend loses his gym to arson. Thus Enzo starts a new investigation, this time more personal to him. Follows the format of the previous books. Your interest is kept alive with the story and characters. Not my favourite Peter May, but it would take a lot to beat his Blackhouse trilogy! However well worth a listen as part of the series or stand alone.
