First off, if you haven't listened to the other 3 books in this series stop and start the series from book 1, The Murder Bag. This is a series that order will matter.
Parsons writes detective/ murder mystery books -- not action packed thrillers. The characters are well developed, especially over the series. Max, the main character is strong yet sensitive, brutal yet kind. He is the type of character you want on your side. I love the interaction between Max and his daughter, Scout, and their dog Stan. You can tell Parsons loves dogs. Some of his lines about our four legged friends made me laugh out loud.
Colin Mace is a master voice actor. He brings the characters to life. He makes a good book even better. Not all narrators have this skill. The quality of the recording is top notch.
I strongly recommend the entire series. If you like
Robert Galbraith, John Verdon or the Will Trent series you're most likely going to enjoy this series too. I hope there's more to come.

I really enjoyed this book, the police case is relevant to today and we see the personal effect it has on ordinary police officers.
I have listened to all of the Max Wolfe series and looking forward to the next one

Great characters in a strong series that is well plotted (if you can forgive the coincidences). It's pacy and full of action as well as reflections on the world as it was and how it is now. Well read by Colin Mace, he's made it his own now. Smiths of Smithfield and BMW should be pleased with their free publicity. Kept me hooked all the way.

Colin Mace is exactly what I believe Max to sound like. He has a wonderful narrating voice and I only hope he doesn't lose the 'gig' to someone else for this series of books. Max would never be the same again if he did.
As for the story, sad, harrowing at times, touching at others. Tony Parsons doing what he does best. On to the next one now, Tony. Please?! xx
