Publisher's Summary

Interpol have tried and failed to find her. Now the combined forces of Scotland Yard and MI5 must try the impossible to prevent a major international incident.

For Dominic Elder, Witch is his passion, his obsession. And being retired is no bar to his willingness to restart the hunt. MI5 know that the man who wrote the Witch file is the key to catching their quarry. But the truth isn't easy to spot. And it is only when an MI5 novice and his French counterpart piece together the smallest of clues, that Witch suddenly looks vulnerable.

Fantastic

What a marvellous narrator Nicola Walker is beautiful voice and read so clearly.
A good story too although I got a bit confused with the different names. Perhaps my brain is going. Anyway hope Nicola Walker narrates more.

Bewitching !

I have listened to Nicola Walker's versatile voice again and again. This book is not to be deleted after you have just heard it the once. You can enjoy it time and time again. Rankin's style of writing keeps you begging for more and more. But I really need to know what was rustling in the conference room! Talent abounds in this must-listen thriller, enjoy, enjoy! You can listen to the whole thing as you drive from Cork to Cavan!

Witch Hunt

Ian Rankin has the skill to maintain our understanding of developments as he moves the plot along. Once started the reader/listener does not want to put this addictive book/recording down. Throughly recommended.

Good Story

Enjoyable book with some good characters, and a good plot. It doesn't try to drag out the story either. It isn't as good as Blood Hunt (another Ian Rankin novel), but if you liked that book you'll like this one too.

Not sure where Jack Harvey fits in!

Kept expecting a character called Jack Harvey to appear - he never did.
Apart from that the overall story was good and well worth listening to.

Great story, great narrator!

To date, I have only read Rebus novels by Ian Rankin. This story of secret service agents tracking down an almost shapeshifting assassin is intriguing stuff. Made even more intriguing by the superb narration of the inimitable Nicola Walker, who seems to effortlessly meander from one accent to another with consummate ease.

Enjoyed this tremendously

Well written and plotted, equally brilliantly narrated by the ever wonderful Nicola Walker. She's my all time favorite actress.
