Publisher's Summary

A ravaged wood, a man in uniform long dead - this is not a World War One battlefield but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre.
Peter Pascoe attends his grandmother’s funeral, and scattering her ashes leads him, too, into war-torn woods in search of his great-grandfather, who fought and died in Passchendaele. Seeing the wood for the trees is the problem for Andy Dalziel when he finds himself fancying an animal rights activist depite her possible complicity in a murderous assault and her appalling taste in whisky. A mind-bending puzzle leading us on the wild side of the pastoral.

Slow start - great finish

Really slow to get going but really worth the effort to keep listening. Lots of twists in the plot right to last few minutes!

Excellent narration with good clef distinctive characters.

Hill never fails to give a good story

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wood Beyond to be better than the print version?

I like to listen to audio books when ironing, cooking or gardening, you can't do these with a print book!

I do wish there were more Reginald Hill books on audio, in particular 'A Cure for all Diseases'. I have read this book and borrowed an audio version from my local library. I would like to own an audio copy.

Any additional comments?

When you finish a book by Reginald Hill, you can't fail to be impressed by the planning that must have gone into the story to tie up all the ends.
This was no exception.
Jonathan Keeble gives a good narration.
