    On a Hawaiian island a wealthy American woman – twice widowed, once divorced – hires a local driver to show her around. As their relationship develops we discover the secrets of narrator, Luis', past.

    Orphaned as a young boy and raised by his aunt, he knows this central truth about himself – his father was a murderer. How does this affect his life; what about the other secrets he has been keeping? And what is the real truth behind Marcia's immediate attraction to him?

    The Man Booker prize-winning novelist and poet, Ben Okri makes his Crime debut in this series with a daringly ambitious story that crosses genre. Detective Drapper feels the world is out of kilter as he investigates an alleged crime. There is a witness but no body. And then the facts begin to shift and what should be impossible seems to be happening at every turn.

    Why can no one else see the truth as it soon becomes plain to Drapper and how is he to solve a problem when the very fabric of reality is torn?

    In a departure from the worlds of her crime novels, Sophie Hannah has created a new character especially for this series. Detective Constable Simon Waterhouse can't let a case go. It looks as if it's been solved, but he is sure that something has been missed. As he continues as investigation into the suicide of a schoolyard bully, the underbelly of village life is laid bare – as is the secret pain Waterhouse himself has carried for so long.

    Featuring deranged altercations in the churchyard and a blue bear named Bully, this story by one of our leading crime writers examines the motivations of a very human police officer.

Fantastic

So spooky - there are twists, but at the end you’re still not sure what happened

Wow! Very Scary!

This story, beautifully acted by a woman whose name I can't find, is frightening on so many levels.

Vampires don't scare me. Ghosts--meh. But when you mess with reality in such a way, with me loving and hating and identifying with the characters, you really twist my head.

I've never read anything by Ms. Dibdin, but she now has a new fan, and I'll seek out more of her work!

Enjoyable listen overall

Good stories overall. However, one story seems to be somewhat incomplete I, personally would want to find out more about characters and what happened to them. I don't want to spoil the listen, but I hope you would figure out which story I am talking on about. Generally, it is worth listening, and it is free. What are you going to lose?

Disappointed with stories

Two stories were OK. Bully and Zephyr. The rest were poor and were not really stories at all but to me, just self-indulgent waffling. I wouldn't recommend.

Bland multiverse mumbo-jumbo

A really great narrator, unfortunately terribly bland writing, for example - "not where... but *when*"

Good stories, but poorly grouped.

I thought that these were all good stories, but they were bundled together as a set crime stories in the tradition of Scandinavian crime fiction. I don't know who made that decision, or why, but it detracted from the set simply because I went in with very different expectations.

very underwhelming

so disappointed, the stories got worse as I listened, hoped they would improve but they didnt. Also some stories end unfinished.
