Publisher's Summary

As the snow falls thickly, Detective Joe Ashworth and his daughter, Jessie, are swept along in the crowd onto the Metro. But when the train is stopped, Jessie notices that an old lady hasn’t left the train: Margaret Krukowski has been fatally stabbed as she sat on the crowded train.

Arriving at the scene, DI Vera Stanhope is relieved to have an excuse to escape the festivities. Soon Vera and Joe are on their way to the south Northumberland town of Mardle, where Margaret lived. Then a second woman is murdered. Retracing Margaret’s final steps, Vera finds herself searching deep into the hidden past of this seemingly innocent neighbourhood. Why are the residents of Harbour Street so reluctant to speak?

Unexpected Ending!

If you could sum up Harbour Street in three words, what would they be?

Extremely well written

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

There are many twists and turns in the plot.

What does Janine Birkett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Janine Birkett's voice changed effectively for each character. She reads extremely well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would happily have listened to the entire book in one sitting if it had been possible.

Any additional comments?

This book was a great combination of Ann Cleeves writing and Janine Birkett's reading.

Enjoyable but...

I really like Vera Stanhope as a hero in these books she is a totally believable flawed human and it makes for a great story. I had issues with the narrator on this book. She had a nice voice but t the accents were very poorly done which spoiled it for me. Shame.
