The House in the Woods

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mark Dawson

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Date: May 2020

Duration: 9 hours 57 minutes

Summary:

Four murders. Two detectives. One mystifying crime.

On Christmas Eve, DCI Mackenzie Jones is called to a shooting at a remote farmhouse. Ralph Mallender believes his father lies dead inside. When three more bodies are discovered, it's clear a festive family gathering has turned into a gruesome tragedy.

At first it seems like an open and shut case: a murder suicide committed by Ralph's volatile brother Cameron. Then new evidence makes Mack suspect the man who reported the crime is in fact the perpetrator.

But Mack isn't the only one with a stake in the case. Private investigator Atticus Priest has been hired to get Ralph acquitted. That means unearthing any weaknesses in Mack's evidence.

Irascible, impatient, and unpredictable, Atticus has weaknesses of his own. Mack knows all about them because they share a past-both professionally and personally. This time round, however, they aren't on the same side. And as Atticus picks at the loose ends of the case, everything starts to unravel in a way neither of them could ever have predicted . . .

    Top notch crime fiction.. Atticus is the perfect oddball-intelligence-detective and I can’t wait for the next instalment! Narrator just as good as the content, match made in heaven m.

    Not bad, just mediocre. Overdone plot twist, classic cop procedural with a too-cool-to-stay-a-cop type main character.

    I picked this from the book club offerings . I love crime novels, was not what I expected, not really the style of writing I'm looking for, I did listen to it after all other books . Interesting content, a bit drawn out, nice plot twist.

    I was offered this book from the book club. Considering that it is about a police department in Great Britain, I naturally expected an A. C, Doyle, or A. Christie flavor to the text. I was pleasantly surprised to find the book quite engaging! On more than a couple of occasions, I was on the proverbial edge of my seat! I had to write a review because I was caught up in the novel. An engaging read! I highly recommend!

    Excellent book and excellent narration. I thought I had predicted the end correctly but there is a nice little twist in end that I definitely didn’t see coming. It gets straight into the story without heaps of background building up front. I like how Mark Dawson writes, he really draws you in.

    Very enjoyable book. The story was engaging even though it was predictable. The narrator was accomplished and entertaining. I would listen to a sequel.
