Publisher's Summary

The droll Scots detective, Bob Burns, is once more aided by forensic scientist and ladyfriend, Dr Julie Bryson, and abetted by overly keen Andy Green. Working undercover on a cruise liner bound for the Canary Islands, Bob and his two sidekicks have plenty to cope with. The discovery of a severed finger in a passenger's quiche lorraine sparks an investigation full of greed, guile, deceit and double-dealing. Does the finger belong to an alleged man-overboard victim? Was the man-overboard victim pushed, or did he commit suicide? Is it all just a cleverly engineered insurance scam?

Can’t Deal With The Sound Effects

ACH! Forget it. I started listening in 2008, got more than ½ way though, and gave up because it was boring and I HATED the narration. I tried again now (Dec 2012) and I just can’t go on. I’m 38% done and I could not care less.

This might be the best story ever, but I will never know it because the narration is terrible. The strong Scottish accent of some of the characters is IMPOSSIBLE to understand.

But that pales in comparison to the DISGUSTING, REVOLTING noises going on during the narration. Wet, clicking, smacking, swallowing sounds… it he actually eating??? Maybe sucking on a mint? Loose dentures?? Really it’s like he’s talking with his mouth full - It’s so distracting (gross) I just can’t go on.
