Always good story and excellent narration..

Another good one, about murder and drugs but, as I said in my review of the last book, I'm done. All the books are good but I'm tired of all her books having no excitement whatsoever*******

No romance and no swearing to speak of*******

As for the narration: Jonathan Keeble is one of the best narrators out there, no matter what he reads.

Why changing Detective's mother's name

From book 1, mother who raised him was called Frida, in this one they are referring to her as Jean?!

Brilliant last book in the series

This series was really good, I listened to all 10 in just over a week. There is always something going on, and lots of twists along the way. Definitely worth a listen. Very well narrated.

A bit samey

Brilliantly narrated as always but nothing memorable in this one - has the series run out of oomph?

Strange that a character has had a name change!

Usual good story and amazing performance from Jonathan Keeble, but why on earth is Calladine's birth mother now Jean, when, in the last nine books, she has been Frida?? This let's the while thing down a lot.

Really Like this series but ...

I read the book first. Jonathan Keeble's narration is really good for Tom and the other male characters - but do not like him narrating women (male voice makes them sound a bit like pantomime dames!!.
I have read all of this series and enjoyed them all - but the women are becoming a bit irritating to read. All bossy and 1 dimensional for me!

“Simply the best......

.......Better than all the rest” - of Durrant’s Calladine & Bayliss novels. The plot and sub plots were far clearer. The best thing by far about this series, is the reading of Jonathan Keeble. I cannot praise him enough in his renditions. He would even make the reading of a telephone directory interesting. Many thanks Mr. Keeble.
