MacBride's characters are WONDERFUL, especially his hero?? Detective Sergeant Logan McRae. I question hero, because McRae is real enough to make 'blinders' of mistakes and errors of judgement. He is very human. The other character that I wait for is McRae's boss, Steele. Steele is magnificent! She's a bawdy, forthright, humourous and fearsome character. Actually she's much more than this, but you'll have to listen yourself to get the full measure of this creation. Quite honestly I wouldn't mind if there was NO plot because the interaction of the characters is so engaging. There is plot though and GOOD PLOT. John Sessions doesn't narrate - he performs brilliantly. DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS !

Loved it, and but struggled with the different levels of volume which made it difficult to hear at times.
You know how they say golf is a good walk spoiled? This is the same, on two counts. First, Broken Skin is another great MacBride McRae story, aren't they all - complicated, witty, gritty, but who on earth decided to abridge it down to half a story and that John Sessions would be a good reader for it. Those two points alone stripped the stars from the rating. I have the paperback, I know the bits that are missing and they are IMPORTANT to the story. It makes me wonder whether the audiobook producers actually read the story at all. And John Sessions, a word of advice, stick to the comedy impressions, dear, because a serious audiobook narrator you are not. Sorry, but that is this experienced listener's opinion. YMMV of course.
