What did you like most about To Do and Die?

I thoroughly enjoyed the story which held my attention all the way through, I listened mostly in the car and sometimes couldn't get out until a particular passage or chapter had reached the point I was prepared to leave it . Quite a few journeys flew by!

What does Jonathon Oliver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The versatility of the narrator to handle a wide variety of accents gave the story greater authenticity.
