Publisher's Summary

As the snow falls thickly, Detective Joe Ashworth and his daughter, Jessie, are swept along in the crowd onto the Metro. But when the train is stopped, Jessie notices that an old lady hasn’t left the train: Margaret Krukowski has been fatally stabbed as she sat on the crowded train.
Arriving at the scene, DI Vera Stanhope is relieved to have an excuse to escape the festivities. Soon Vera and Joe are on their way to the south Northumberland town of Mardle, where Margaret lived. Then a second woman is murdered. Retracing Margaret’s final steps, Vera finds herself searching deep into the hidden past of this seemingly innocent neighbourhood. Why are the residents of Harbour Street so reluctant to speak?

Unexpected Ending!

If you could sum up Harbour Street in three words, what would they be?

Extremely well written

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

There are many twists and turns in the plot.

What does Janine Birkett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Janine Birkett's voice changed effectively for each character. She reads extremely well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would happily have listened to the entire book in one sitting if it had been possible.

Any additional comments?

This book was a great combination of Ann Cleeves writing and Janine Birkett's reading.

My first Vera Book

If you could sum up Harbour Street in three words, what would they be?

A great listen,

What did you like best about this story?

A detective that does not spend all day arguing with superiors. I sometime wonder how they actually get any work done. A detective that is not and does not seem to have ever been an alcoholic . She does enjoy her food and drink but that story line is not continually harked upon. No Vera gets on with the job in hand, is pleasant to her staff and is aware of her failings. All in all a great story,I am off now to listen to another,

Saw it coming and the forgot

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story is original, one could sense who might be responsible but then we are steared away and return with a surprise as to whodunnit

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Less mention of the eventual culprit would have made sense

What does Janine Birkett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Driving in the car would have been hazardous whilst reading this book, or any other. Her narration was excellent.

Was Harbour Street worth the listening time?

Definitely

Any additional comments?

No thanks
