Publisher's Summary

D/S Jimmy Suttle is called to a brutal murder in the picturesque Devon village of Lympstone. Harriet Reilly, a local GP, has been found disembowelled in the bedroom of her partner, climate scientist Alois Bentner.
Suttle's estranged wife, Lizzie, has abandoned Portsmouth, moved to Exeter and returned to journalism, hearing rumours of a local GP offering mercy killings to patients meeting certain criteria. The name of the GP is Harriet Reilly.
So begins two investigations of the same crime. Operation Buzzard, with D/S Suttle at its heart, and Lizzie, piecing together her own version of the events that led to Harriet Reilly's death.
The fourth novel in the Jimmy Suttle series is a story of ultimate betrayal, reaching much further and wider than its Devon roots.

Predictible and a little boring

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less predictable plot twists and situations. It seemed to me that Mr. Hurley was on auto-pilot when he wrote this one.


Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Hurley again?

Possibly. I think his novels are much better when he hoses an audience and writes for them, such as mystery readers or social issue readers or alternative life-style readers but not all. I know characters need dimension but too much dimension just leaves them flat.


What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jonathan Keeble is always fabulous. One of my most favorite Jonathan Keeble performances is: A Cure For All Diseases by Reginald Hill.,


What character would you cut from The Order of Things?

If you're a warmista you will love it

If you don't mind being brainwashed by the current Globull Warming propaganda with a bit of lesbianism thrown in you'll probably love it. I fast forwarded through much of the propaganda and really only stuck with it because I was short of a book on my walk.
