The voice was very pleasing to the ear. Unique story development. Something I had not heard before, I'm glad I tried it and am purchasing the next one in the series. It's not a horror story or rape story it's a good old fashion mystery. I've gotten away from the more violent thrillers, they all seem the same and they started keeping me awake at night. This type of book is excellent and no nightmares.

First, I really wanted to love this book. The book reviews (Amazon) were excellent, and with Simon Vance narrating, what could go wrong? Well....the audible reviews weren't encouraging, but there were only a few so my hopes were high. The first half of the book was only ok, it was not very engaging with a lot of details without activity. However the second half the the book was really great. Plenty of action with a number of suspects, twists and turns. If I could, I would rate the first half of the book a 3 and the second half a 4 plus.

I enjoyed this book. It's not mind-blowing, but it is well worth a listen and a great way to wile away the afternoon. I also really like the fact that they have used a British narrator despite the main character being American as the story isn't told from Jefferson's POV. In fact 99% of the book is set in Britain, and most of the characters are British, so I personally think it makes perfect sense to have the story narrated by a British narrator - plus it's really nice not to have to listen to the British accents and places being mangled by an American narrator, something that I have had to endure far to often as an Audible.co.uk customer.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and will probably get the next in the series.

What did you like most about In the Blood?
Just the right mixture to keep the interest piqued. Facinating historical details, evocative descriptions of Cornwall and a detective thread based usually on genealogy.
What was one of the most memorable moments of In the Blood?
JT swimming into the coastal cave.
Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Easy listening, well narrated, satisfying ending.

I am a big mystery and detective story buff and it takes a fair bit to impress me, but I really loved the unique premise of this book. It was fast paced and credible with a satisfying number of twists and turns. It was performed well by Simon Vance who was enjoyable and witty and made great use of the material. Do not start this book if you have something important to do, you will not be able to turn it off. I am buying the next one in the series now.
A real page turner as they say which keeps you on the edge of your seat. I actually resented the interruptions which forced me to leave the story for the often necessary functions of life. That's two of the author's books I've enjoyed and can't wait for the next!
