Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated new book in the bestselling DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.
The body of an elderly man is found in an abandoned World War Two pillbox beside the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. With no obvious motive and no credible suspect, DI Nick Dixon starts digging into the victim's past.
The more he digs, the deeper Dixon is drawn into a case that takes him from the cave systems beneath rural Somerset to the heart of government, and threatens to expose a military cover-up at the highest level.
Blocked by a wall of silence, Dixon must unravel a dangerous conspiracy before the killer strikes again.

shame about the narraror

I found the narrators voice really annoying which was a shame as the story seemed compelling enough, however I gave up half way through. Can't really comment on the overall story. would like to hear more from this series if another narrator is used.

The many comedy voices of Napoleon Ryan

Any additional comments?

I don't know Napoleon Ryan. I'm sure he's a very nice chap and a very good actor. The problem is with his narration. I love Damian Boyd's books. I really like the characters, the plot and the police procedural. However, the truly lamentable narration detracts from this. I am a huge fan of audiobooks. Travelling a great deal as I do, it's an easy way of relaxing.

The trouble comes when you're on a flight to - let's say - Germany, and Napoleon introduces a new character. This time, it's a Welsh one. He manages to make the guy - Cuthbert - sound like an Indian version of 'Yoda'. He cost me a whisky as I was laughing so much, I spilled it.

I have complained q.v. about Jan Cramer's sarcastic voicing of - let me see - ALL of her attempts, but she's up against some stiff competition now for the 'Razzie' of audiobook narration.

I'd love to stay and write more, but I've had a trying day and need cheering up, so I'm off to listen to see what's in store. Do I have any idea about what's going on? Barely.

But the comedy voices are a treat...

Come on Audible! Get someone in who knows what they're doing! At least let the author approve the narrator; I can't believe for a minute that Damien got through a couple of chapters without spilling his milk...
