Any additional comments?

I usually only like women authors but a friend recommended The Women's Murder Club and I listened to all 12 in record time. My mother was really poorly in hospital at the time (sadly died in September) and I couldn't sleep. When I'd read the WMC books I used to fall asleep regularly so I bought the Michael Bennett book in the hope it would help. It was a riveting interesting read and it filled my head with words at a time I really didn't want to think. It helped me sleep as I often drifted off while listening and if I didn't I enjoyed the story so much it stopped me grieving (if only for a short while). The characters were excellent and the voices were really believable as what you would imagine them to sound like, I'm now working my way through that series and am enjoying every minute of the books so far!

A must listen to.

Being addicted to crime thrillers and such like, I was delighted with the curve the writer has put into this story. Quite brilliantly set out with an excellent by-line of 10 little people made this extremely interesting and an abominal villan who really gets under your skin. Miss this one at your own loss!
