Old Gold is the first novel in what is now the three book Eoin Miller series set in the midlands of England. As a young man he went against his Gypsy heritage and joined the police. He quit the police to work for a drug gang. Eoin's estranged wife is now in the running for police commissioner while Eoin has sank into alcohol addiction. When a woman he picked up at a bar is killed in his bed while he is passed out, he sets out to solve this murder mystery.
Eoin is weak, cowardly and stupid to go with his alcoholism. He is, however, much less bad than any of the other characters in the novel. Overall Old Gold is an interesting and worthwhile suspense thriller with excellent narration. I will likely listen to the next novel in the Eoin Miller series.

Where does Old Gold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
As this book Old Gold by Jay Stringer is the first Audio book I have listened to (my trial month with Kindle Unlimited) I think it was excellent. A good narration with a variable choice of speed. A very good thriller detective story which kept me guessing until it was revealed who the killer was, right near the end of the book.Now I want the second book, titled, Runaway Town.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I enjoyed all the characters as they all seemed plausible.
Which scene did you most enjoy?

It was all so good I can't choose one.
Any additional comments?
A very satisfying read or listening. I must get the rest of this series.
