This is an easy to enjoy mystery. It did not challenge me, but sometimes that is exactly what the doctor ordered. Here and there the main character comes across as a little prude and self righteous, but these are easily overlooked flaws. Of course, excellent narration by Kelsey Grammer.

Wonderful book!

This is an example of excellent nature writing. This book presents a fascinating look at a fascinating tree and the symbiotic relationship between it and a type of wasp. Much learning. Thoroughly enjoyable. The narration is flawless.

This set of 5 heists, the 6th episode does not detail a heist, makes for a very good listen. Even if one remembers a specific one from the news, the analysis of how it happened is fascinating. Very well done.

Very well done

Not being a fan of true crime whether book or podcast, I listened to West Cork with an open mind never having been aware of the story. I think that it is well structured and it held my interest throughout. I'm glad that I listened.

Another great Shetland story

The Shetland series by Ann Cleeves is a favourite of mine. The stories are well developed and the characters believable. Stories such as this one are set in remote Shetland communities, and Cleeves's writing describes the landscape and the characters relationship to it very well.

The narration by Kenny Blyth is wonderful, again!

Another fun listen

I really enjoy these Mydworth Mysteries. Can't wait for the next three stories to be available on Audible. Will move to the Cherringham series, which are as much fun and with more stories available.

Wonderful version of Greek Myths

This is a modern, although not complete (S. Fry says so himself of myths that are the basis for much poetry and literature. Highly recommendable.

Having scant knowledge of Tess Gerritsen's books, I read The Surgeon when it first came out, I am glad that I listened to this one. It is time for me to return to other books in the series. This is a very good and well plotted thriller. Highly entertaining and recommendable.

Great story!

Set in Argentina. This is a nicely woven story of murder with an outcome worth supporting... A national Park. Nicely narrated.

The Jackman and Evans series gets better and better with each book. This one book offers nice twists and a solid resolution. I really enjoy this series as well as the D. I. Galena's. I wish there were more than two Matt Ballard books - waiting.

As usual, the narration by Richard Armitage is superb!
