The Claret Murders: A Mark Rollins Adventure Audiobook – Unabridged
Top Customer Reviews
Collins's voice is consistent throughout, and his language is articulate and easy to understand; likewise, his narrative balances "showing" and "telling" giving just enough of each to draw the reader in and get the reader involved. The recurring characters, for those who have read the previous books, feel more like friends or colleagues not just characters in a story. Finally, Collins does a great job of setting up the scenes with vivid details and imagery enabling us to see the "tapestry-covered secret door." "Curiosity" grips us, and we find ourselves descending into the old cellar faintly lit by the "light from the pantry door...leading down into darkness." Collins leads the way and makes it a delight to follow from beginning to end. Thank you from a Nashville native!
Curious as well is the use of drones for reconnaissance, something once unbelievable yet with the news of 106 governmental agencies being granted rights by the FAA to fly them, quite believable now. The story-telling ability of Collins keeps you engaged and makes it hard to stop reading. And his prescience for anticipating the use of drones by non-governmental entities may be foretelling the expanse of their reach and capabilities in the future.
The Claret Murders was an enjoyable read for me and as a skeptic to murder/mysteries, that is quite a feat. I recommend this to anyone who loves to read a good story.
Being a Nashvillian and legal community insider for more than 25 years only made the story more entertaining to me. I'm there, instantly engaged and entertained, and I could swear I know some of those folks in real life!
