Mystery in Australia
The reader did a great job w/dialect and descriptions of Australia were interesting.
Understated mystery, minimum of explicit violence, and interesting local characters
Fun to listen to.
I thoroughly enjoyed this masterful read!
At the top of my list for fiction.
The protaganist - the Inspector - he was everything you would wish an "Inspector" to be - capable and competent as an officer of the law, with a wry sense of humor and a deep appreciation for what is really important is life.
The coffin maker - i looked forward eagerly to the Inspector's every visit to him.
When the Inspector was temporarily locked in his coffin.
I tried this book on a , but loved it from the first page,an have bought more of the Inspector's books since then.
