I think everyone should take the time to write stories of their family. We may not have the talent of Peggy Rowe but I’m positive our future generations would enjoy our reminiscences.

Titus Welliver encompasses the character of Bosch. When I started watching the TV series I wasn’t sure I’d like him as Bosch....but I quickly lay changed my mind. Perfect for the series role and as the narrator.

This is one of my favorite Bosch novels. Solid story, character development and great narrator.

Narrators outstanding.

The main narrator was terrific. He plays the character of Bosch on the Netflix series and is equally good as an actor.

This was at most original, but in no way plausible. I didn’t like multiple narrators as they at times just didn’t fit the character and were somewhat jarring. I admit I skipped ahead as I did want to know the ending but couldn’t handle listening anymore.

While I do like novels that switch from past to present this book made the transition awkwardly. Not my favourite Wignall thriller.

The narrator/s were pitch perfect. The book was well written,with good character development...particularly it’s main character.
However I needed to remind myself throughout the novel that she was a child who, because of her circumstance, was ripe for latching on to the first person who treated her with love and respect. In this case it is a fully grown man who often struggles (and loses) his desire to change the relationship from friend to lover. This started when she was 8 and was manifested by 13. While love was the only emotion each felt for the other...it sends a troubling message. This book is not for everyone. I’m still grappling with balancing the fiction of this book with a dangerous message.

I loved this story. Not just because I grew up in Nelson but because this is an entertaining, well written and humorous tale. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed this short story. Reminds us how our lives and the choices we make intersect with the lives of others.

Amazing debut Novel.

Catherine Steadman's writing and narration had me hooked right from the start. I've listened to a lot of novels and this ranks up with the best.
