I found the play predictable and rather boring. I'm used to the great stories Ian writes. This was not to my liking.Published 4 months ago by Steven J Macdonald
Didn't enjoy it. My fault as I had not realised it was a play rather than a novel.Published 6 months ago by Mrs A.D. McVean
Rankin at his best. MANY MORE PLEASE! WHEN I FINISH ONE OF HIS BOOKS I SUFFER FROM WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS!!Published 7 months ago by Colonel (rtd) Don Blake
A great read as usual from my favourite author. Definitely recommend. You cannot put a book down if you are so engrossed and want to know what happens next.Published 8 months ago by Elizabeth Barrowman
I am an avid Rankin fan, but I found this format very difficult to engage with. I would certainly go and see the play, but I did give up on reading fairly early on.Published 8 months ago by Bruce Campbell
