I have enjoyed this entire series on Audible and was looking forward to this book's release - which was perfectly timed for me being flat on my back for a few days. Alas I finished the book in one day which is the best endorsement I can give. Somewhat different from the rest of the series but an excellent story with usual excellent narration. One of the very few books I gave five stars in each category. Looking forward to the next book.

Detective thrillers do not get better than In the Bright Future! This is Book 5 in the English detective DC Smith series. Smith is on forced leave and he goes to Northern Ireland and deals with people from his past. Gildart Jackson does his usual wonderful job of narration.
If you like the mystery/thriller genre, this is a must listen novel. It's definitely one of the best of the year.

I’ve only ‘read’ these books via audio, but can’t imagine any other way now thanks to the excellent performance by the narrator. The central character is presented with a subtlety and charm that is very engaging.
A fascinating view into the complexities of “the troubles” and how they touched families for generations and still do. This a slow burner but the pace is perfect to provoke contemplation. The main character of the series, DC, is a clever thoughtful man and this book gives an insight into the person he has become. He might be a little like Marmite but I sit squarely in the “love it” camp. If you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller then go elsewhere but if you have focus and a little indulgence then you will be roundly rewarded with what I would judge to be the best in this series so far. It is also unexpectedly moving and all the better for it. A final thought on the narration which was very fine indeed. The range of accents must have been daunting but they were handled superbly and the pace and timing were absolutely on point. I wonder if Mr Jackson has met Mr Grainger as there is such empathy in the narrated interpretation. I strongly recommend this book.
