Beware, not a full book: just a 30 min except.

Don't be fooled, this is just a taster of the second Frey and MCGray book, A Fever of The Blood. On the plus side, this short extract is superbly voiced by Andy Secombe, and the nascent plot seems exciting. But I could have gathered all that by listening to Audible's free 3 minute sample, without purchasing this.
Sadly, you can't even enjoy this excerpt as a stand-alone item, as the excerpt stops on a (minor) cliffhanger! Sneaky, eh?!
It only cost about 50 pence, so I can't manage to feel more than a trifle miffed. But if I had used a whole credit on it, I might be seriously peeved!!
If you are new to this series, I suggest you start with The Strings of Murder which is the first book, before moving on to A Fever of The Blood, which is the second book in the series. The complete books are good stuff, well worth a listen, but really, don't bother buying this short snippet.
