Publisher's Summary

Rock climbers can't afford to make careless mistakes. But Detective Inspector Nick Dixon's former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, died doing just that. Or so it seems. Dixon suspects foul play, but his only leads are unreliable accounts of something odd happening in Cheddar Gorge seconds before Jake fell.
The more Dixon learns about Jake's life, the more he realises that Jake hadn't been quite the man he remembered…and a lot of people could have wanted him dead. Once Dixon gets too close to the truth, those people will emerge from the shadows and kill to protect their secrets.
As the body count rises, Dixon bends the rules to breaking point to lure out a killer and unravel a conspiracy of silence that will rock the sleepy town of Burnham-on-Sea to its core.
As the Crow Flies is the electrifying first novel in the DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

Average story, dreadful narration

Almost gave up on this book several times but persevered; wish I hadn't bothered. The narrator is VERY bad.

This Crow Flies Pretty Well

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. It's a good read, entertaining and pulls you in.

What other book might you compare As the Crow Flies to, and why?

There isn't one. Yet.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Napoleon Ryan?

If I bought the book.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Can't think of one.

Any additional comments?

Other reviewers mention the female voice sounding odd or breathy. To me this voice sounds audibly created and then added in at the appropriate places. If it is the male narrator's voice re-engineered to sound female, it would've sounded better if a female narrator was used to voice the parts. But that would probably have made the book more expensive.

Also, the male narrator's voice did sound a bit re-engineered too at times.

Otherwise, the story made the narration worth putting up with.
