Publisher's Summary

Carlyle is attempting too much and achieving too little and he's upsetting all the wrong people - this time it could be terminal... Jake Haggar has been kidnapped by his father who is threatening to sell the boy to a paedophile ring. Carlyle is struggling to get him back. It's not his case but it is his problem - it was his fault Jake was taken in the first place. But Carlyle's own caseload includes the murder of Agatha Mills. Her husband, Henry, has been arrested for murder but his explanation is so outlandish that Carlyle wonders if it may just be true.
Agatha is the sister of William Pettigrew, a priest killed in Chile during the Fascist coup in 1973 and after 30 years of campaigning, Agatha was about to see his killer brought to justice. So a seemingly straightforward case of murder quickly escalates into a diplomatic incident that has Carlyle, once again, clashing with his bosses and their political masters...
James Craig worked previously as a journalist and TV producer. Born in Scotland, he has lived and worked in London for 30 years.

Not for me

Would you try another book written by James Craig or narrated by Joe Jameson?

I might try another book by Craig but not from this series.

Was Never Apologise, Never Explain worth the listening time?

I didn't give up on this book but I felt like doing so a few times.

Any additional comments?

It is a mild type of comedy that didn't appeal to me. I got annoyed with the bumbling inspector rather than laughing at him. I didn't find him entirely credible and although the plot should have been engaging it wasn't.

I purchased this after reading several rave reviews. The lead detective was a likeable character but the plot was tedious and poorly resolved. Can I have my money back please!
