Publisher's Summary

When the Berebury Footpaths Society created their locally infamous motto, "Every walk a challenge," they couldn't have known just how apt it would be. Avid hikers Wendy Lamport and Gordon Briggs suffer from a good walk spoiled when, while reclaiming a public footpath from the greedy barbed-wire fences of encroaching farmers, a crow drops a severed human finger at their feet. And where there's a finger, thinks Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan, a body can't be far behind.

It would seem that there are a handful of bodies to whom the finger might belong. A suspiciously long list of people have gone missing from Great Rooden's farming country: the tippling son of a local pillar of society, a financier who may have angered the wrong man, and even an old tramp or two who may have thieved one apple too many. Can the old tag team of DI Sloan and Constable Crosby solve the case?

Delightful

These stories are just wonderful. I love love Sergeant Sloan. Detective Crosby is a great character as well. The dialogue between the two of them is wonderful. Ms Catherine creates the most authentic characters and how she describes her settings is masterful. She is not getting the acclaim as author her work warrants. This is a book you will enjoy listening to many times. The narrator, Derek Perkins, is absolutely marvelous in his performance.

Well told procedural

Wonderful procedural crime/murder tale. The clues are available for the reader/listener to develop the solution, but, even then the working out of the plot is entertaining. The author probably had a sound and broad liberal education and interests, given asides and numerous adds. Mr. Perkins, the narrator, does a superb job. Overall a very enjoyable read/listen.

Boring

This was a long drawn out boring story line. Deep details into subjects that didn’t need such details to the plot of the story. I did not enjoy it.

Sadly Tedious

Kinn McIntosh(Catherine Aird), is definitely a gifted writer, but she took a really different, and should have been interesting situation and drowned it with so much, constant banal banter, you forget what in the hell Sloan and Crosby are investigating.

Amusing

This book was amusing, however, they throw in a lot of poetry and recitations from other books.

Super Boring

This book is kinda like one of those people we all know who can talk for an hour & not have said anything.
I could not finish this.

Disappointed in this one, story and narrator

Narrator keeps reading the characters wrong, giving them strengths and weaknesses where they don’t have them.

However, the author has me confused as well. Why the last few books has she made Sloane a bit daft, Crosby smarter than himself, and Lees totally with it and clever? Ugh

But, besides all of that, I didn’t really care for this particular plot. My preference of course.
