Gilchrist gets a new Sidekick!
Another excellent novel in the series. T F Muir treats us to his usual blend of gruesome plot lines, genuinely scary characters and no little action as the DI Gilchrist story marches forward. Into the pot though he has stirred a new ingredient in the form of a new sidekick. This character may well annoy you . . . but they are meant to . . . worth sticking with it to see how the chemistry between the characters develops.

IF YOU NEED TO SLEEP DONT DOWNLOAD THIS
Would you consider the audio edition of Life for a Life to be better than the print version?
I love books but the David Monteath's narrations gives a depth to the story, he flips between characters with ease, and his skill ensures you know who is saying what without being told
What was one of the most memorable moments of Life for a Life?
The relationship that builds between the main characters through difficult circumstances adds another dimension to the main story.
Have you listened to any of David Monteath’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I've listened to several books narrated by David Monteath, his performance does not vary and you can be sure of the quality and his ability to engage the listener.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This story does not lend itself to either laughter or tears, it is a thriller in its truest form.
Any additional comments?
The expression "page turner" really does mean something here, the depth of the story and the excellent narration eats hours (and miles)
I highly recommend to those that enjoy detective thrillers.
