Pretty good book read by a great narrator. Love his sexy Irish accent. The story had an interesting plot and both likeable and unlikable characters. Definitely kept me wanting to know who did what, and it delivered.
The Irish bog makes a perfect setting for a murder mystery and though this tale was entertaining, I found the ending less climatic and somehow lacking in the drama and resolution I had been expecting.
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me interested and it was very exciting.
Very good story. The reader's voice was soothing & lyrical and held my attention throughout.
Very interesting, wouldn't say haunting but definitely kept me listening. Well thought out plot and excellent writing. The narrator had an incredible array of accents!
This one kept me engaged all the way to the end. The only problem was exactly that: the end. It seemed the author wasn't sure how to lead the characters through solving what appeared to be an insoluble mystery, so she resorted to an improbable, and rushed, deus ex machina that tainted my enjoyment of the story. I shouldn't complain too much, because I probably would have been more dissatisfied if the author had left the mystery unsolved. She develops some great characters, and chooses a terrific starting point in forensic archaeology. I would not be surprised to see some of these characters and themes reappear in future works by Hart.
Very enjoyable - multiple, similar plots in different times (far past, recent past, and present), archaeological information (superficial but a nice touch), and little nuggets of Irish history combined to make this interesting, but not too complex for listening. Well read also.
Wow! First of all, I loved the narrator's accent. Secondly, the multiple plot lines are deftly woven and each is compelling. The suspense built from the initial vignette and by the end I still hadn't figured it all out (even though I usually do). Finally the characterizations were believeable and well-drawn. All in all, a fine story.
