A holiday in Morocco seems to be the perfect escape. Especially when she meets Philip, a fellow tourist who distracts her from her troubles. After a brief affair, Lizzie returns to England, to a solicitor's letter. Philip Samson has died. In his will, he has left Lizzie a gift of £15,000.

So ordinary had to toss it

I like Ann Cleeves she writes Vera and Shetland really well. I started off with great hopes but they were quickly dampened. Really can’t be bothered to find out who did the murder.

Disappointing

Ann Cleeves write great stories but the narrator for this one was a real disappointment.

Not good at all.

I was expecting a good story after listening to another book by the author. How wrong! This is just awful. The main character is so annoying and the story too far fetched. It had me cringing throughout. I didn’t enjoy it at all.

So disappointing.

I can't believe Ann Cleeves wrote this. I don't feel a connection to the characters.

A truly satisfying read

I love the main quirky character, her mad ways and troubled logic. The plot is all compelling and not at all predictable. A turkey satisfying read.

Burial of Ghosts

How disappointing. Not like any of the other Ann Cleeves books that I have really enjoyed. Not one that I would recommend

One her best!

Didn’t remember when I was listening that this was by Ann Cleaves and admired the writer as I listened. The performance was excellent and very believable. Looked forward to returning bro every chapter
