Critic Reviews

"A police procedural that delights the reader with a strong sense of place. Tartan Noir at its best." (Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill)

Interesting modern detective novel!

Robbing the Dead is a multiple murder suspense mystery set near the northeastern coast of Scotland. It is the first novel in the two novel (so far) Inspector Jim Carruthers series. I definitely plan to listen to Book 2 of this series. James Gilles narrates very well indeed; however, his neutral English accent is all wrong for this Scottish detective novel.

A Three

Interesting story, back story and characters make this book a lively read. It did get confusing as I listened, so many names that did not seem to fit the story, but with a happy ending all was sorted at the end. I think :-)

Going to return

I’m only 20 mins into this and going to return it. Bad narration, stilted dialogue, predictable and stereotypical characters.
