Publisher's Summary

When hordes of 18-year-olds descend on the Mornington Peninsula to celebrate the end of exams, a brutal bashing attracts political attention.

The victim is connected, and now DI Hal Challis is facing interference from on high. Newly embarked on a relationship with his Sergeant, Ellen Destry, Challis doesn't need the brass looking over his shoulder.

Then a bludgeoned corpse is found outside town, and it's clear something much darker than adolescent craziness is going down.

Not a great listening experience

The narrator is not good however on top of this an issue with the editing had parts of a random audio book place in the chapters towards the end. The character are not particularly likeable and the story line a little weak, give this book a miss.

Good story badly edited

There are two inserts from a completely different story.
The cadences of the narrator, Colin McPhillamy are not always appropriate and a little annoying.

Good story spoilt by author's unsubtle propaganda.

What disappointed you about Blood Moon?

I was most disappointed and annoyed by this novel.! I don't expect to find the author's prejudices and propaganda so obvious in a fiction crime novel. Spoilt what was potentially a good story.

Also the story towards the end was interrupted by segments from another (American voiced) novel. The tapes had been mixed up. Rather off-putting!

The conclusion was far too abrupt and obviously intended to ensure the listener buys the next book in the series. I do not believe a good author should not have to stoop to this technique

I will be returning this book and certainly not buying any more by this author - even though he is a fellow Aussie!

Has Blood Moon put you off other books in this genre?

No - just put me off this author!

Blood moon

Great story great performance. Unfortunately recording is interrupted around chapter 45 and 57 by a completely unrelated story. There must have been a mixup in the recording it is very frustrating for a fabulous book
