Excellent read

Great story, well read. Gripping, a classic page turner. Interesting plot with real life overtones.

Waste of a download

This really is an appalling book, and my advice is to stay away from it. The reader is awful, with terrible pronunciation. The production is bad too, as there are at least two stumbles and re-reads which have NOT been edited from the piece.

Gem of a Thriller

I was blown over by the quality of the writing, and the delivery by Michael Page. This is a quirky thriller read in a personal way that draws the listener into the story from beginning to end.
Highly recommended.

Great story and well read

Where does An Empty Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first Laura Wilson novel, and it won't be my last. She writes a good gripping tale, which kept me listening. Sean Barrett's narration is superb. He really brings the book and the characters to life. If only all audio books were this good to listen to.

Great idea badly executed

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story idea is great, but the writing is appalling. It really feels as if the book was never through the hands of an editor. The writer has little style, and after a time the story telling becomes mundane. The reader does his best to bring it alive, but frankly there are better books out there, and i feel that this was a waste of my time and money.

This is really funny. I was born about the same time as Alexei, and know what was going on at the time. So it really is an extraordinary story, full of humour. I highly recommend this book

I was looking forward to this book as being a list of anecdotes and stories, but unfortunately I was left disappointed. It really didn't live up to the billing. The stories are ok, but there is nothing in there that really made me feel wow! Nathan is obviously really proud of his charity work - and rightly so. But there aren't enough cliff hanger stories in the book to get me really excited. True tales from war zones and other disasters they may be.. but not really enough to make want to recommend this as and action read.

How to get hooked

I read this book and became hooked on the writing of Michael Connelly. It may not be the first in the Harry Bosch series but it's a great introduction to the character, and the author. Needless to say I have read all Michael Connelly's works. Truly one of the great American crime authors.
