well worth a listen

really enjoyed this book. well read. liked the reader's voice. some voices can really annoy. i could relate to the time of the first murder & i enjoyed the authors description of whitby. a place i love. i didnt hear any 'glaring' gaffs as one reader did. but i guess it's possible. i'll definately look out for more books by this author

A Really Good Listen!

Thoroughly enjoyable crime thriller, made all the more enjoyable if you grew up in the 60's, like me, and can identify with some of the musical references of the time. The switching between the present day and 1969 investigations works well, and inspite of DI Banks and his colleagues being established serial fictional characters, the author doesn't stint on developing the 60's characters in the story. This was my first DI Bank's novel and it made me thirsty for more, although unfortunately the are are no other unabridged audios. Shame!
