Volume

Had trouble listening as narrator would speak very softly at times, almost whispering then speak loudly

Story ok but narrator not so much

Although this was quite a good story leaning toward gruesome as Durant's murder mysteries tend to be, the narrator's way of reading it distracted me throughout and I've since read the others myself. He seems to add too much emphasis or inflection where it is unwarranted.

Finally on Audible

Having a friend who reads these books months before they become available I've been eagerly awaiting this new Graco series. This was a good start so can't wait to get catching up. I hope that unlike the Calladine & Bayliss series, also by Helen H Durrant which I loved, all the books become available on Audible.

Entertaining

Good read. not too hard to figure out though. Entertaining nonetheless. I will try the next in the series.

Unfair on listener and story writer.

The recording volume was insufficient as the narrators voice goes from normal to indistinct.. The inflections in the narrators voice distract from story and listening becomes a chore instead of a relaxing pleasure. It is unfair on the listener and author. I have reached chapter three but only by going back and listening to chapters again. I am at present considering asking for a refund and I have yet two more books narrated by the same person.

Sound too low

Have gone through the Durrant “Death” series and loved them, was excited about this new series from her, but terribly disappointed on the low sound level, I am quite an intense audible customer and it’s the first time this has happened

Brilliant 5 star audio book

I have read some of Helen's books and loved them so thought I had better start at the beginning of this series. The book is a very well written story which kept me hooked all the way through, even though I did guess who the murderer was about half way through, I just didn't know who else would die and whether they would get away with it or not. The narration was also very good and it was easy to distinguish between characters as well as their voices being consistent all the way through

Boarding

I love a good crime book but this didn't grip me at all. Not memorable and not worth investigating in the series

Enjoyable introduction to a new series

I enjoyed this book, and the narrator, once I got used to his somewhat heavy voice. The lead character sometimes comes across as rather gloomy. But then he has his reasons.

Intricate

I found it difficult to get the characters sorted out in my mind initially, however once there the intrigue took off. enjoyed the story very much. I did find the narrator spoke very quietly on times and i had to rerun the section.

the first book in a series

This appeare the be the first book in a Series and spends a lot of work setting up the characters to the detriment of the story. the end is also far too pat! I will get the next book because I was happy to listen to the story. I hope it offers more depth as the basic premises is good.

very drab. no anticipation at end. rubbish

Absolutely no rhyme or reason to it. Tbh...it was rubbish. too many story lines. No pulling together. No exciting or anticipated ending....I stuck with it hoping there would be a good ending....nothing...waste of time and money.
