Received a bonus code for an honest review. Narrator did an excellent job. Of the three books I listened to, I found this one the most interesting.

Handful is right

this was my first and probably my only aduiobook book from this author, the narrator's tone did not change no matter what was going on,the detective is a male pig and if you follow just alittle you solve the "mystery " before the even get started. I like to read back stories and such however like I said male pig he needs to get his life together but all he cares about is when he can get back in bed with his new girlfriend. I really didnt like this all that much. I received this aduiobook and voluntarily choose to reveiw.

This book really didn't work for me...

This book really wasn't for me... I never really cared what happened to the characters. There wasn't any reason to, and that is a bad, bad sign. In addition, I found the mystery to be pretty tepid, as in, the mystery wasn't very mysterious. Within just a couple of chapters, there was enough forcasting that I already knew the who/how, long before our "crack" PI figured it out, and he was leagues ahead of the unbelievably dunder-headed Detective Inspector for the police force!
I also found the narration done by Anthony Goring, simply terrible! His delivery was on a par with watching mud harden! It didn't matter whether John Handful's life was being threatened, or he was having a good time in the company of a woman... Anthony Goring just droned on and on and on! I will never pick up another book narrated by him. It was almost painful in its lack of "spark"!
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Much better

I’m not entirely sure what happened with the first books. But this one was so much more readable. I did notice the ending a little sooner that I would have liked. But that’s ok. Good solid short story.

A wonderful mystery

Glad I stuck with the series after book 2. This was the best of the series so far and the best narration. I did not want to put it down and binged it as FA’s as I could.

This book was provided free for review, however, the thoughts are my own.

A short, quality mystery

As a disclaimer, I was offered a copy of this book for the sake of an honest review.

The writing is faithful to the rest of the John Handful mysteries, this time venturing much closer to detective Handful's personal life. The result is a lot of character development, which is good and paves the way to the following works. The mystery in itself is a little simple, serving more as a background to John Handful's musings at times.

It remains a good book, as long as one's expectations are set on the right objective.

Anthony Goring's performance as a narrator is stellar, giving this short piece of mystery a good, reflective tone that sets the character perfectly.

Good story

Very cool little story. It's very well written and the narrator does an awesome job.
