Liked it, but found it a little far fetched.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Fourth Sacrifice to be better than the print version?
As usual, impeccably read by Peter Forbes, which I feel must make the audio version of this book better than the print version.
What about Peter Forbes’s performance did you like?
He just makes a perfect job, every time. Voices, pronunciation, all flawless.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Most of Peter May's book bring a tear to my eye from time to time.
Any additional comments?
Loved the story and the presentation, but found the clues a little heavy handed, by Peter May's standards, so much so that I thought there might even be a huge double bluff. I also found the conclusion a bit far fetched. You always have to be prepared to suspend disbelief with Peter May, but with the Fourth Sacrifice, I thought I had to do this more than usual.

Not good enough to continue
The central "twist" in this book was obvious from very early on, and the set-up was quite clumsy. After two books in the China series, the central characters show no promise of fleshing out to any enjoyable extent.
I very much enjoyed Peter May's Outer Hebrides series but this China series is seriously lacking in interest on most levels.
I am a sucker for a book series, but for the first time I will not be reading one to its conclusion. I am stopping the China series right here.
