Critic Reviews

"Exciting, pacey, vivid and humane. Read it." (Lesley Glaister)
"The descriptions of the setting, Yorkshire at its bleakest, the characters, were so subtly slipped in that I absorbed them subliminally.... I am now reading this excellent book again." (

Disappointed. Love narrator, not story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

story slow and can not get into. Don't know who to recommend.

What was most disappointing about Helen Cadbury’s story?

Story slow, character development slow and jumbled.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jonathan Keeble?

I don''t have problem Jonathan Keeble, I love his narrations.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Bought book because I love the narrator and description of story sounded intriguing

A good one

This book had most of what I like: British setting, police procedural, the energy of youthful offenders, a couple of really good detectives, interracial chsracters, a bit of humor, and good story line.

Loved this as much as the first Sean Denton book

Would you listen to Bones in the Nest again? Why?

Yes I would because I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gosh hard question. All the characters are so well written I couldn't pick out one in particular.

What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

I love listening to books narrated by Jonathan Keeble, I first heard him narrating LJ Ross's series of Inspector Ryan books and felt his voice set the tone perfectly.

Any additional comments?

Sean Denton is back and has now become a fully fledged police constable. He has a new partner, Gavin, but we still have characters from the first novel. Lizzy, his love interest is back from a sojourn to London. A killer has been released from prison on probation, she is said to have killed a young man on the Chasebridge Estate ten years previously. The first half of the book is set both in Doncaster, following Sean Denton, and in York where we get an insight into the life of the newly released prison 'Chloe'. Shortly after her release a murder is committed in one of the tower blocks on the same estate. Once again this is paced perfectly and the story is woven with skill and precision. The twist is excellent and unexpected. Most enjoyable. Terribly sad to think there is only one more in the pipeline as Helen Cadbury sadly passed away this year.
