"It's Christmas, and a serial killer is leaving displayed body parts all over Cumbria.
A strange message is left at each scene: #BSC6.
Called in to investigate, the National Crime Agency's Washington Poe and Tilly Bradshaw are faced with a case that makes no sense. Why were some victims anaesthetised, while others died in appalling agony? Why is their only suspect denying what they can irrefutably prove but admitting to things they weren't even aware of? And why did the victims all take the same two weeks off work three years earlier?
And when a disgraced FBI Agent gets in touch, things take an even darker turn. Because she doesn't think Poe is dealing with a serial killer at all; she thinks he's dealing with someone far, far worse - a man who calls himself the Curator.
And nothing will ever be the same again...."
Produced by Neil Gardner & Narrated by John Banks
Length: 9 hours - 23 minutes
Excellent as always
I normally like to go short and to the point with reviews.
But honestly how can I make you understand how insanely good the Poe and
Tilly saga is. It could be if well done one of the best series on tv
ever in my opinion. Why no one isn't snapping this up, it blows my mind.
The characters are thought of so well, the stories are just amazing. I
will need to stop raving on, no surprise that Mr Craven gets another 5
shiny stars from me. He again had me on all hook and tenders, I applaud
you sir 👏👏
ps the narration is as always the best !
John Banks' narration is excellent, he really brings the book to life.
Poe & Tilly are back, and the wait has definitely been worth it. Tilly’s character is maturing whilst her adorable traits still remain, along with Poe’s dogged determination they make a brilliant team. Craven takes you on a twist and turn journey to find The Curator. It is fast paced, enthralling and unlike most crime novels the ending is completely unpredictable.
A definite must listen.
It is a must to have experienced in the earlier stories to
be able to fully appreciate this one. Great storyline and
characterisation. A job exceptionally well done!
Absolutely bloody brilliant
I was not sure what to expect from a third Washington Poe
entry, often third books can be lacklustre but OH BOY, this one is quite
the opposite. I was sucked in and full on glued to my earbuds the
I don't know where to begin with an attempt to describe this story, it's too bizarre to describe rationally, up, down sideways, whichever ways, this is a roller coaster way beyond any I've ridden before.
Buy it, listen now, you will love it (unless you have a delicate sensibilities as this is far from cozy) .
Johns Banks is absolutely the perfect narrator for this book, in fact I wish he could record new versions of all the books I've ever listened to.
wonderful twist and turns, on the edge of your seat plot and the funniest humour!
