    Description

    In the early hours of Christmas Eve, the wife of parliamentary candidate Tom Perry is brutally murdered in an apparent burglary gone wrong.

    With the by-election campaign about to start in earnest and the festive season in full swing, torrential rain brings with it flood warnings on the Somerset Levels.

    Suspended on full pay and transferred to the cold case unit, Detective Inspector Nick Dixon is languishing on the sidelines as the investigation into Elizabeth Perry's murder unravels and the floodwaters rise.

    Returning to duty, Dixon is convinced that the answer lies hidden in Tom Perry's political life, but why was Elizabeth the target and not her husband? The more Dixon uncovers, the further he is from finding the truth....

    Dead Level is the fifth novel in Damien Boyd's addictive DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

    Overall a super series..

    I noticed in this series that the first book had 173 pages and the page count got higher with each book, with this one having 354. However, it was like the author forgot how to use verbal expressions in this book, as he went along: no exclaimed, muttered, mumbled, yelled, replied, and the like. In this book he thought “said” was enough, since that one word was used 757 times. Don’t think for a minute that one word used that many times isn’t noticeable. It drove me nuts. And, since the next book, due out in October, is 352 pages long I’m not sure I’ll read it. To me, that’s just the lazy way to write, but that’s just my opinion.

    Having said that, this was a pretty good mystery: who paid to have a pregnant Elizabeth Perry killed? And why? Oh, and that was just the first murder. And then there was the shooting by the police who are usually unarmed. Where the US refers to it as a “bulletproof vest” it’s called a “stabbing vest” in this series.

    Needless to say, I was totally surprised to find out who paid for the killing of Elizabeth and why. WOW!

    Again, no romance, no kissing, no nothing. These were all murder/suspense/mysteries NOT romances.

    There was swearing and the F-bomb was used 12 times.

    Over all, it was a quite the mystery, but not as good as a couple of the others’ from this series.

    As to the narrator: I enjoyed every second of all 5 books because of Napoleon Ryan’s narration. He did so many voices, and they were all wonderful.

    ALL 5 BOOKS WERE FREE READ & FREE LISTEN. IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT.

    Outstanding detective thriller!

    The DI Nick Dixon detective series Book 5 is the best yet. My only complaint is with narrator Napoleon Ryan. He does an excellent job with male and female voices, but he does some male voices too loudly and some female voices too softly. It makes the volume control difficult to set.

    My new favorite author!

    Great story, I am always surprised with “who did it”.
    Love the narration! It’s like taking a trip to England.

    Excellent plot made even better by narrator

    The series is great. The talented narration by Napoleon Ryan who does voices and accents to perfection makes for a great listen.

    Holidays, Politics and Murder

    Book Five in the series finds DI Nick Dixon suspended with full pay, then transferred to the Cold Case Unit, following the solving of the case of the murder of his college girlfriend. It’s the early hours of Christmas Eve and the wife of a popular parliamentary candidate has been murdered. Is it a random robbery gone wrong? Or something more sinister? When the suspect in the murder turns up floating in the river, DI Nick Dixon is called back to regular duty and put on the case. Nothing is what it seems. If its politically motivated, why kill the wife? This is an excellent series, rich with atmospheric details of torrential rains of the season as well as holiday celebrations, which have to be cut short for murder investigations. Great details and resolution.

    Dead Level

    Napoleon Ryan 's brilliant performance and fantastic talent was the only reason I listened to this book. Author was very lucky to have Napoleon Ryan read the story.

    book interesting.. narraters are dreadful

    Hard to stay with when the two main characters speak with sexy breathless tones. They sound like they just had a passionate encounter in between murders. irritating to listen to.

    Book Cleanse

    After listening to a disturbing and depraved book by another author (J.A. Konrath), I needed a book that wouldn't cause me troubled dreams and uneasy sleep. Damien Boyd writes books that are easy listening and don't cause nightmares. I have read every book in the DI Nick Dixon series and have enjoyed them all.
