Not as good as previous books..still okay
I found it annoying that Daleys wife Liz has been left out of this instalment and Daley suddenly back with his colleague Mary...this seemed very out
of place with what I recall of the previous book..story okay very well performed..if u heard or read the previous prob worth a listen

"Far-fetched" was a term used by one of the characters in this bizarre instalment of what has, hitherto, been a refreshing addition to the crime fiction scene.
Characterisation and development, such a strong element of the preceding novels, was cast aside in favour of over-complex and frankly incredible plotting; the last four hours of listening felt interminable.
'Phoned in' is an expression I believe is used to described lazy, formulaic Hollywood scripts and this one felt phoned-in.
After a pause, I think I will give the fifth novel a go but DCI Daley and his fellow island-dwellers are, as far as I'm concerned, on notice.
