This is a fantastic series. I simply adore Bruno. I hope he gets his love life in order soon, though. :-)

The story is unique - combining Basque terrorists, foie gras, love of animals, French countryside, and fabulous meals. Simply amazing!

The narration was spot-on. I need the next book now. That ending was a little too blunt.

A series that keeps improving

What made the experience of listening to The Crowded Grave the most enjoyable?

Excellent narration and very interesting plot

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crowded Grave?

When Bruno and the mayor plan a demonstration.

Have you listened to any of Robert Ian Mackenzie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, and although this is excellent it is not Mackenzie at his absolute best. His accent for the character of Carlos does not serve well.
