I can't get enough...

Make as many of these as you can! I will pay ANY price to continue to enjoy the saga of James McLevy, Jean Brash, Lt Roach and Mulholland. If ever there was the perfect storm of script & casting, this is it. Sadly listening to the entire series, over and over again, waiting for new episodes. Get back into the studio!

McLevy LOVE!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely would recommend this audiobook to a friend. Love, love, love McLevy.


What did you like best about this story?

I love the characters and characterizations. The stories progress and so do the characters. Insight into Victorian Scotland is a treat.


What does Brian Cox and Siobhan Redmond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Brian Cox and Siobhan Redmond's voice charaterizations. Already familiar with Brian Cox's work in films--Glimmer Man and the Austrialian Broadcasting Co. show where he plays the kingpin of a drug selling family. His gravelly voice is just perfect for the picture I have in my head re: McLevy. Siobhan's voice is a perfect warm, playful counterpart to McLevy. The other actors portraying Muhollad and the Lt. Roach are fabulous as well. The story lines are progressive and interesting. I'm riveted and now I've gotten my hubby hooked too.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'm delighted that McLevy and Jean Brash finally got "together." I was afraid that it would never happen. They're in love despite their circumstances in life and now I'm afraid for them. Possibly, Muholland suspects their secret. What's going to happen when it finally comes to light? Absolutely, everyone close to them sees how they are about each other, but their situation seems impossible. She has intimated that she'd be willing to move elsewhere, but he's a cop and that's all he knows. His patch.


Any additional comments?

Keep the stories coming as fast as you can. I'm anxiously awaiting the next thrilling installment. Also, the full-cast productions are marvelous. Much more interesting than single narrators.
