Really Excellent Wring & Narration

These are serial books. I found the first book and began listening by accident, having crossed up the name of one author with Peter Lovesy. I was hooked immediately. This first book was not the beginning of the series. Normally I would have gone to the beginning book. For some reason, maybe earlier books were not yet in recorded books. I listened to all from that point on though. I count get enough. I have loved the processes of the DIC Peter Lovesy's personal life especially but also the revealing of and developments among this co workers. There's humor, tension suspense and one feels annoyance, agonies, a full spectrum of emotions. There's a subtle poignancy in the writing by Peter Lovesey. There's a keen thoughtfulness to his writing, that manages to reveal detail in a sort of concise and natural way, without slowing the action. The procedural and relational features of the investigative, and policing seems very credible and well researched, truly and insiders view.

I'm certain that it is this amazing and deft writing as well as the crime and suspense that hooks the reader into wanting more and dreading reaching the end of the series...like you know that you'll miss Peter Dismond and his team, your people and team! Withdrawal

Oh and can't forget the superb Narrative performance of , Simon Prebble in this book and most others.

Engaging and unusual plot

Well written and captivating. A mystery that ultimately is not brilliantly resolved but well worth the read.

Good story with twists, keeps your interest

Interesting plot, narration exceptional. Peter Diamond is a curmudgeon but a very likable one. Must get more of the series.
