Brilliant audiobook!

For those of you who have not read Scott Lynch's books and want to read this audiobook....well...do not!!! I am British, have lived in America 13 years, know about the repressed attitudes of my American friends. Read the book or try to OK? Readers from the rest of the world enjoy this series for what it is : a fantastic, well written, rip-roaring yarn. If you have not read the book,then do not review the audiobook and for Heaven's sake please do not inflict uninformed opinions upon the rest of us.

This series is probably the best set of audiobooks ever hosted on Audible....for those of us who enjoy well written epic fantasy.

Disappointing

After reading a prior Morse story that was superb-this was too convoluted and didn't hold my interest as much. Though overall it was worthwhile-mainly due to the brilliant Kevin Whatley narrating. There were too many threads for a 3 hour audiobook. I hope the others in the series-another 11 or so-will not be the same. Audible-if you are listening(good pun eh?) I think you should make these stories unabridged like the Maisie Dobbs mysteries which are also exceptional.

True to the book:A good traditional scare!

Excellent-a ripping good horror yarn! Definitely worthwhile and brilliantly narrated! Nuff said-get it now!

Worthwhile and intricate

Twist after twist-makes this an engrossing listen. Morse's long suffering assistant (from the TV series in Britain) does a superb job of narration. I shall definitely be getting all of the other dozen or so episodes in this series-since they remind me of home. My only gripe was the last 2 minutes which I found unnecessary but which did not detract from the actual ending to the case. Morse has never been known to be spontaneous in certain emotional areas.....enough said though. Listen to it now-you will not be disappointed!
