What a brilliant story
What a delight - a lng story but completely captivating, superbly read and a very delicious ending. 5* without question
Keith McCarthy and Sean Barrett...
....what’s not to love. A match made in heaven. An intelligent, amusing and irreverent crime story perfectly narrated, as always, by Sean Barrett.
My only complaint? I have now completed all of Keith McCarthy’s novels. I knew I should have paced myself.
An intelligent and entertaining story from Frances Brady, which has been perfectly read by Anne Dover. A true and entertaining pleasure
What a brilliant read/listen. A great story superbly realised by David Rintoul. Highly recommended 🤓
A faultless good read
With Keith McCarthy and Sean Barrett, you know you have a superb combination. Great story with the usual dark humour of McCarthy, perfectly interpreted by Barrett, you are guaranteed the perfect read/listen. 5* or 6•, if I’m allowed
History in a delicious form
Beautifully read by Carole Boyd, Queen Bees is a thorough, informative and enjoyable book that addresses 6 women whose roles and influence in the early 20th C may otherwise be too easily forgotten.
Thank you Sian Evans for a delightful ‘read’
A brilliant new fun find
Having read and enjoyed all the books by Keith McCarthy, I am very happy to have found another author whose writing is as intelligent, entertains and captivating.
Also, due credit to Tim Bruce for an excellent and entertaining narration.
5* all round
Good story and superb narration
An absorbing and entertaining book which was further brought to live by Ray Lonnen's excellent reading of the story.
Nice touches of humour in an absorbing thriller
The perfect find
This is my second Jane Casey novel and she is a discovery that is giving me so much pleasure - thanks to her excellent stories and writing style (thrilling, great touches of humour and sometimes poignant) and the excellent interpretation by Caroline Lennon.
If you have listened to one yet - do so, you won't regret it. I am in a quandary - happy there are still a number of her novels to enjoy but saddened that they will run out all too soon if I do not 'ration' them 😱

Brilliant as always but..
Great story, as always from Mark Billingham and perfectly interpreted and read by Robert Glenister. The only thing I found really off putting and distracting were the 2 pieces of short incidental music, one of which always made me think the theme tune to Crossroads was about to kick in 😱
