Left hanging at the end amid too many bodies

I’ve listened to a number of the author's books and while this is an interesting, if somewhat implausible story, I never felt as engaged as I had with previous novels. The book starts well with an intriguing mystery as to how the bones of a young woman, who went missing on holiday in Thailand, ended up in a field in England. However, the narrative thereafter goes off in different directions and latterly deteriorates in a series of mass of killings. I also grew weary of the clichés of the genre: maverick cop, who is taken off the case because of going out on a limb; conflict with superiors, broken marriage etc., etc., but worst of all the story ends unresolved on a cliffhanger, presumably with the hope of selling the next book, but it short-changes the reader.

The narrator is excellent as usual.

I downloaded this one based on all the good reviews but I have to say I'm very surprised this book is averaging over 4 stars? The storyline is ok but very unrealistic. For example the very powerful, rich and well connected 'bad guys' are so paranoid two of them only call each other on a mobile at midnight in a soundproof reinforced concrete room but then leave the tools they've used to murder victims in an unlocked shed in the garden? Also the first half of the book had US slang and measurements and then switch to old UK imperial. Trying not to give specifics here so not to spoil it. The book felt like it had a ghost writer for parts of it? Also the book is read as the protagonist's memoirs which I felt took away a part of the storytelling. First book in this series and it will be my last I'm afraid.

I Want Some More!

Fast paced adventure, unpredictable, enjoyable. Violence a little gross at times. Who are the police engaged with this gang? Where is the man with the hat, Mr. Bone? What is the title of the sequal? I want to read it.

Usual fast paced story from Kernick spoiled

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Similar to other Kernick novels this is fast paced and exciting and demands little effort from the listener. This one is spoiled for me by the American references which are entirely out of place as the story is set in the UK and France. Not sure if I'll finish as they distract me.

What three words best describe Paul Thornley’s performance?

Believable accents tempo
