Well done but time listed is wrong

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Nicely convoluted Oxfordian plots.

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

At least happily listening on a car drive.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Whately – was your favorite?


Could you see Morse's Greatest Mysteries being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Kevin Whately, John Thaw(?)

Any additional comments?

This is mislabeled. It's only 2:30 long and it said it was 7+.

kevin whately should be reading ALL audiobooks! :)

Have you listened to any of Kevin Whately’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

it's probably not surprising that someone who's an excellent actor AND knows these characters as well as anyone alive would be a GREAT narrator for the title, but i was surprised how very wonderful kevin whately's performance was; i think, in future, i'd listen to just about anything reads!

Any additional comments?

i chose this mostly for the (one) christmas-themed story, but all five titles were fun and involving, and not ones that i remember being dramatised in the tv series. i will definitely look for more.
