Sintesi dell'editore

Chief Inspector Acton and Detective Sergeant Kathleen Doyle know firsthand how the administration of justice can often follow a labyrinthine path. As they pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton's own questionable methods may prove his undoing.

The notoriety of being married to the enigmatically brilliant Lord Acton presents its own challenges as newly promoted Detective Sergeant Doyle contends with a series of homicides that seem to point to a vigilante killer. The victims are all criminals who eluded justice - until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante's identity lies in connecting the cold cases and searching for an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years - a daunting task.

Meanwhile Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he's in contact with Acton's nemesis, she fears she's being used in a plot against her husband, whose personal code of justice has the potential to put his reputation - and his life - at risk.

For his own part, Acton must outmaneuver an unscrupulous reporter being fed information from someone within the ranks of Scotland Yard. The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards.

Not the best one in the series

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'd rather say that I really liked two previous books in the series, thanks to twisted plot, well developed detective line, intriguing relationships and unusual characters. But this one not so much.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wish it would be more dynamic, less predictable, and the main character... well, I would like to see her acting more like a professional detective with special gift rather than damsel in distress with absolutely erratic behavior. <br/>Really hope that the next book will get back on trail and again will bring us all intrigue and excitement of first two books in the series.

Did Marcella Riordan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I'm not a native English speaker and I admit that I couldn't appreciate all sorts of pronunciations but I have to say that sometimes Marcella Riordan interpretation of book's characters sounded to me annoying and distracting,especially when she spoke as the main character Detective Sergeant Kathleen Doyle. I didn't really paid it a lot of attention before as the plot of previous books completely captured me, but this time it just added negative emotion to the whole picture.

Good but not the best

A little too slow in story line but still good!
Not the best writing in terms of developing a real mystery story.

Spectacular story; outstanding performance

Marcella Riordan's spot-on performance made this already nail-biting tale of suspense literally jump from its pages. Not only was I unable to put the book down when I was READING it, but Marcella's spot-on rendering of the spirit of suspense and intrigue coupled with her skill at capturing the spirit and complexity of each character made LISTENING to the story just as on-the-edge-of-your-chair exciting, if not even more so, even though I already knew the ending. I have every intention of re- listening many times to this extraordinary audio version of an extraordinary "on paper" story. Kudos to both Ms. Cleeland and Ms. Riordan .... and many, many thanks for hours of unparalleled pleasure.

A Delight!

Any additional comments?

This is the third book in this series. I own all three in Kindle and Audiobook. They are a pleasure to read and a pleasure to listen to. Marcella Riordan is the narrator; she is perfection, moving easily from South London, Dublin and Ulster accents. My only question is where are number four and five in this charming series, wonderfully written by Ann Cleeland?

Wish I had not bought this

This was a thinly disguised soft romance novel with no real discernible plot or character development. Ugh.

Read/listen to this book at least twice

What did you love best about Murder in Hindsight?

This is a fairly complex story - I really only appreciated it after listening to it twice. You will miss lots of important facts if you don't concentrate. I'm sure everyone hated Doyle being hurt emotionally, but stick with it, its a good story and I can't wait for book 4!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Doyle - completely believable and enormously intuitive!

Which scene was your favorite?

When Cassie gets her comeuppance!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hindsight

Any additional comments?

I'm really hoping that Acton is working for good and "pretending" to be bad!

Not what you'd expect in a mystery #3

I went from #1 - to #2 -to #3 without a pause in-between. They don't exactly deserve 5 stars, but they don't deserve less, either. They are just different enough to keep you glued, and totally enjoyable to say the least.

Murder in hindsight thrills

I have enjoyed immensely all three books in this series by Ann Cleveland

The stories have romance and intrigue which are very exciting but at their heart They are police detective stories with a twist

You will love the characters and the narration

A Little Lacking

Liked the story line but Riordan was a little off her game this time. I'm hoping there will be more by this team of Cleeland and Riordan.
