Reviews

Excellent Reader


(5 stars)

The reader was excellent - I hope that she will read more mysteries. The story had a lot going on and kept my interest but I was disappointed in the ending. The killer is revealed but there's no real explanation of why they did it or much corroborating evidence. I have listened to all of the other Craig Kennedy stories and enjoyed them - this one was a bit of a letdown in the ending.


(5 stars)

The use of early scientific methods, knowledge and instruments once again gives Craig Kennedy the advantage over the criminal. My only gripe is the abruptness of the ending. However, the actual plot, characters, and twists and turns; along with an excellent narrator, delivers an entertaining listening experience.
