I've set a reminder for myself to buy the kindle copy on Tuesday. Super excited grin no idea what it's even about!

DH said he would buy it for me for our anniversary. I hope I will not actually have to wait a full week to read it. hmm

I started reading it yesterday and was hooked : it is very long at nearly 606 pages!

How did you get your mitts on a copy? Mine is only coming on Monday I think.
Enjoy!

I preordered on a kindle from Amazon! Been waiting for book four for a while

I’ve downloaded it on audible but have only managed to listen to the first chapter so far.

Oh yikes, another distraction from Middlemarch and all the books I've committed to read for Victober (Uncle Silas, Daniel Deronda, Wives & Daughters) waves @CramptonHodnet

Oh yes , downloaded it on Tuesday and finished it today ( thanks to my 10 month old who decided to actually nap for a change 😃). Has anyone else finished it yet? I couldn't put it down!

The80sweregreat Wed 19-Sep-18 14:42:08

I'm enjoying it so far.

hackmum Wed 19-Sep-18 14:49:21

I'm about a quarter way through and really enjoying it. I'd been a bit worried that at 650 pages it would drag but actually it's skipping along.

ShinyElena Wed 19-Sep-18 15:05:47

I need a hard copy, because DH wants to read it, too. I am so envious of all of you.

Lunde Wed 19-Sep-18 15:10:11

I preordered the hardback from Amazon and it arrived in Sweden yesterday - I am 185 pages in and it is really good so far.

DH picked it up at the airport and read in a single sitting on his flight! Can't wait for him to get back from his business trip now so I can read it

The80sweregreat Wed 19-Sep-18 15:27:16

She's a good writer ; I'm in love with strike myself though!

mamapants Sat 22-Sep-18 10:42:21

I finished last night, best of the series.
So pleased about one thing that happened!

ShinyElena Sat 22-Sep-18 11:07:47

I cannot wait.

hackmum Sat 22-Sep-18 14:27:06

Finished it now. Thought it was excellent - gloriously complicated. Because I read/watch a lot of crime thrillers I'm usually pretty good at working out whodunnit. Didn't stand a chance with this one, though. She is such a clever writer. It showed even in the Harry Potters.

5ambreakfastclub Sat 22-Sep-18 15:15:55

hackmum totally agree , she is just such a fantastic writer . The book was fabulous and I was kept guessing until the end. Plus it's one of the few crime thrillers that I would quite happily read again and again !

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Sep-18 20:46:42

I loved this book.
I ( sort of) had an inkling of the conclusion but not all of it! Very complicated plot.
Here's to book 5 ..

RaggieDolls Mon 24-Sep-18 18:34:11

Me too mama. I know exactly what you're referring to!

Loved, loved, loved this book. Best of the series so far.

Letshopeitsallok Mon 24-Sep-18 18:44:13

Finished it yesterday! I listened to the audible version. Robert Glenister who does the narration is excellent. I really enjoyed it, although reviews have been mixed.

MrsChollySawcutt Mon 24-Sep-18 18:54:16

Halfway through listening to the audiobook of this. I have to agree that Robert Glenister is a superb narrator for this series.

missnevermind Mon 24-Sep-18 19:03:48

I have only watched the others on TV should I read the books first or dive straight in with this one?
