What does Steve Worsley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
With a dead-on ear for MacBride's humor and humanity, Worsley captures the author's characters beautifully. I read the e-book first because the audio wasn't available for some time, and found that I really missed the Scottish accent. He's the perfect voice for both Logan and Steele, no small trick.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Everything about Logan's steadfast devotion to the comatose shell that was Samantha is moving for me, more so because MacBride avoids being maudlin or overly sentimental.
Any additional comments?
I love this series. Sometimes when I've come off a bad streak of disappointing mysteries I go back and re-listen to one of the Logan Macrea novels - like a breath of fresh air, they are by turns tragic, horrifying, laugh-out-loud funny, always wonderfully written and driven by a truly heroic, flawed central character. Always leaves me wanting more.

I so enjoy the humor that pops up in this book. Now I'm off to choose another in the series.
I've loved all of the Logan McRae books and pre-ordered this one as soon as I could. I had a long car journey to get through and I was sure this was just what I needed. For the first couple of hours I kept waiting for the big case to start and began to get frustrated when the story wandered around from case to case. I very nearly gave up when I got to the end of my car journey and we still hadn't got our teeth into anything like the usual Logan McRae adventure. I'm very glad I kept going though as I eventually got sucked into the day to day routine and got more involved in the numerous cases that Logan dealt with. The tension and excitement grew and by the end I was very sad it was over. Although this book wasn't what I'd expected at the outset, it really was very enjoyable and I can't wait for the next one.
The narration by Steve Worsley is fantastic.

I've now listened to all the unabridged Logan books and this one didn't disappoint! Love Steele - she has a heart there somewhere!
You do need to listen to these in order as the background follows through the series. Another great listen from MacBride - more please....

Whilst I didn't find the story as fast paced and gritty as others in the series it is always worth it just to hear McRae & Steele together. There were many occasions when I laughed aloud at the banter. MacBride is a master at this type of dialogue. As ever his descriptions are so evocative that you can almost feel and smell the scene. I am once again desperate for his next offering. The characters are believable, down to earth and often flawed but they are very real. Stuart MacBride has delivered again. My only criticism would be that he could learn to write faster!

Back on track with this one, I felt as if poor Logan was slipping away slightly in the last book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story line in this one and it was really well narrated.
Great job by Stuart MacBride and Steve Worsley
