Perhaps a bit too dark & complicated for me but includes every issue you've ever heard about happening in Ireland over the course of the 20th century. Will read more in the series. ( )

Shouldn't Blame the Medium
Review of the Blackstone Audio audiobook edition (2018) listened via Audible Plus (boo!)

I was going to score this a 2 but then thought that would be unfair on the book to rate it based on my bad experience with Audible Plus, so a 3 is my compromise.

Audible ended its free Audible Originals program in September and now provides what is called the Audible Plus service for members. You can stream their offered books (Originals & others) on their app but you can't download them. So it is something like a rental service where you don't "own" the books. Anyway, this has proved frustrating for me as the app seems to freeze up on a regular basis for no apparent reason. I did manage to get through the book however. I've since attempted Cormac Reilly #2 The Scholar also via Audible Plus but haven't been able to get past the first ten minutes before it freezes. So that probably means I'll be doing less Audible in the future aside from my monthly credits which are downloadable audiobooks.

Anyway, The Ruin was ok, although it seemed little investigation was going on and the efforts of the lead were hampered by either incompetent or criminal intent by fellow police and superiors. A depressing view from that angle and also in the plot which dealt with the results of child neglect and of a nurtured child pyschopathy. The big bad seemed fairly obvious early on but it took a very long time for Reilly to catch on.

The reason for the title and for the idyllic lakeside forested scene on the cover image were not at all apparent to me.

The narration performance by Aiofe McMahon was excellent in all voices. ( )

I'm not even sure how I found this but I am delighted I did. Detective Cormac Reilly, meets a case he worked 20 years ago of a young abused boy and his sister. The boy, now grown and happily married commits suicide or does he? Irish and so luxurious accent of the reader. ( )

A plain old, ordinary, run-of-the-mill, excellent murder mystery! This is the perfect book to while away a few hours while eagerly awaiting answers to all the questions! I will check out more of this author's writing! ( )
