Publisher's Summary

After a tip-off, a man's body is exhumed from a shallow grave in Edinburgh. Murder surely, yet he died from natural causes, so, case closed? Indeed was there ever a case? But Chief Constable Skinner and his people keep on digging. Who was the man, why was he buried so reverentially, and by whom? Meanwhile corruption is discovered within the force, and an investigation launched. Immersed in crises, his marriage heading for the rocks, Skinner finds his very career hanging in the balance, its fate beyond his control. Can he win out, or will his life implode?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, I would go back to the normal narration system.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bob Skinner as usual

How could the performance have been better?

Some of the people doing the narration, should do something else. it was terrible.

Was Funeral Note worth the listening time?

Not really. I want to return it.

Any additional comments?

As an Scot from Edinburgh, Scotland. The American woman on this recording should be shown a map of Scotland. Her accent was mostly Irish, with some of the Western Isles thrown in. It was murder to listen to. She was not alone.
If you don't have an ear for, or aptitude to speak other accents. Please don't do it!!!!!
We pay a lot of money for these audio books, and expect to enjoy them.
I did not enjoy this one. I can imagine Quentin Jardine never listened to this audio book.

Too many readers

Was surprised that this audio book had so many people taking the parts. Some of them were difficult to listen to. These books are normally read by James Bryce who is excellent to listen to. Not one of the best Quintin Jardine, Bob Skinner story, in my opinion.

Keep James Bryce - drop the others

Sorry, I have to agree with the other reviewers, switching between voices as the book does might be flashy, but irritates rather than enhances. where it really falls down is where characters are speaking while being voiced by some other narrator so central characters can end up being be 'voiced' by all narrators, I'm sure that Bob Skinner has an irish accent at one stage...
