What made the experience of listening to When the Devil Drives the most enjoyable?

It's a Scottish story, read in a Scottish accent and it felt very contemporary.

What other book might you compare When the Devil Drives to, and why?

I haven't listened to anything similar that wasn't written by Chris Brookmyre. This book's the middle story of three about the same characters.

What does Sarah Barron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She really brought the characters to life - the two main ones are female so it really helped that a woman narrated those, rather than a man doing a high voice!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It didn't make me emotional but the ending played through my mind for a few days afterwards.

Any additional comments?

I love the way Chris Brookmyre sets crime stories against an urban Scottish background. Highly recommended.

With a limited number of suspects it seemed incredible that I could not suspect, even for a moment, the right one. It kept me glued and intrigued. I was suitably misdirected and entertained so can throughly recommend the book - story, performance et al.
