Didn't like his attitude to women

Would you try another book written by Peter King or narrated by David Baker?

Probably no more books by Peter King but David Baker is fine as an American narrator.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't get that far. I returned it after a few hours.

Did The Gourmet Detective inspire you to do anything?

Write this review and return the audio book.

Any additional comments?

The detective's attitude towards women (all girls to him) really grated with me after a couple of hours. Women were either attractive girls on his mental 'list' or might be attractive if they had a haircut and applied a bit of makeup! I felt this attitude was unnecessary and spoilt what would have been a good listen.
