Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Oliver Hembrough

Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Thanks to Stig Abell's remarkable debut novel, Oliver Hembrough has the material needed to provide hours of engrossing listening. When former police officer Jake Jackson inherits his uncle's remote farm, he decides to disconnect from his London life and move in. Leaving behind all modern conveniences, Jake finds contentment he never dreamed possible, but when human bones are found, he's dragged back into detective work. Hembrough's performance captures both the lyrical beauty of the countryside and the intensity of this well-plotted mystery. An assortment of odd locals and a lovely female veterinarian round out the suspects as Jake assists the local police in their investigation. This audiobook is several cuts above the crowd, thanks to intelligent writing and an outstanding performance by Hembrough. S.J.H.
