What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Having all of what Elton wrote would have been a start.
Have you listened to any of Ben Miles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I don't think so, but he makes a good job of what's left of the book.
What character would you cut from Past Mortem?
Any additional comments?
I never listen to abridged books but made a special exception in this case as it's the one Elton audiobook I haven't heard. Now I know why. The cutting is shameful. Chunks of the plot are missing and some scenes are so cut they read like notes the author might have made in the first place. Avoid at all costs if you admire Elton as a novelist as I do. I've a good mind to ask for my money back.

One of the rare listens that though short is compelling to the end! Well worth it!
I'm not a huge fan of Ben Elton, but this book looked a bit 'crimey' so I gave it a shot. I wasn't disappointed, Ben Miles' reading is excellent, the writing is pure Ben Elton style and the story line is a 'can't put down' type. Definitely worth the money and you will listen to it in one go!!

I usually Love most of Ben Elton's books but this was very poor. I knew who'd done it by the second chapter. Very un suprising and dull. Don't go for it. Trying another Ben Elton's work. Also it was very short, lacked any story.
