Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 2/12/2014

    " Pretty good mystery set in England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 2/6/2014

    " I never got into these characters as much as other John Harvey mysteries but the story itself was deep and involved. Very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/1/2014

    " Found this one a bit hard going but must admit I wasn't reading it in ideal conditions, not my normal quiet reading room. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/29/2014

    " Set in the English seaside region of Cornwall, FAR CRY tells the story of a group of local police that are trying to solve the case of several young girls that were abducted or found dead over a period of several years. This is an outstanding mystery full of interesting personalities, twists and turns. I recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Our Library Mornington | 1/25/2014

    " Far Cry is a must read for lovers of the traditional British detective story. Fast paced and uncomplicated, the novel tells the story of two half-sisters who disappear over 10 years apart. The colourful banter between DI Will Grayson and DS Helen Walker provides light relief from the issues of parental guilt, the freedom of children, and the civil rights of suspects. All in all, a ripping yarn from John Harvey, the winner of the 2007 CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger Award. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pipistrelle | 1/18/2014

    " Meh. Picked this one up by accident, and it was a tiresome slog. Too many characters and too few I actually cared about. Not sure why I finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Combe | 1/16/2014

    " Really liked this, although it was spoilt by too much information on the blurb, I was waiting for the second daughter to disappear from the start, had to wait til about page 300. Harvey is a great writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 1/16/2014

    " Very disappointing. In such a fat book I was expecting a lot to happen, but I could have started the book two thirds of the way through, as this is when the action starts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Su | 1/1/2014

    " A fantastic mystery with completely believable events and characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica Flint | 12/28/2013

    " Comparable to John Harvey's page turning best, though I must admit a particular affection for the Charlie Resnick series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arleen | 12/19/2013

    " A mix of characters that all come together at the end. In the beginning, I was very confused until I was able to sort out the characters. Takes place in England and almost seems typical of today's news of missing children taken from their homes. Scary. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 12/5/2013

    " I expected more from this book based on what I read of it in the New York Times Book Review. It was okay, just nothing special. I also figured out one of the main parts of the mystery (and I'm even bad at Clue) well before the end of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/3/2013

    " A nail biter, very good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 8/25/2013

    " A better than average police procedural - good plot, good characters - I would like to read more by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delphine | 7/13/2013

    " Excellent suspense, breathtaking, scary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 3/21/2013

    " Probably closer to a 3.5, but a head above other British procedurals. Plot involves a missing child - not exactly a new theme - but v. well rendered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 3/5/2013

    " What a great new book by my favorite detective story writer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane Brant | 2/13/2013

    " I now have read 3 of his mysteries that deals with kidnapping of young girls,ages 9-13...seems a little obsessive to me. At this point, I don't think I'll read any more of his works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nora | 1/6/2013

    " Well-written... not a thriller, more of a mystery. There are a lot of intersecting plotlines in this book; I felt as though I had jumped into a series 3 books in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/4/2013

    " Written so you couldn't put it down. A story about relationships and a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryAnn | 8/19/2012

    " Another good British police procedural from this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Warrick | 5/6/2012

    " This is a decent, well-written mystery....the characters could use a little more depth, but it was entertaining. I'll look for more from John Harvey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane Clark | 3/8/2012

    " Read first 75-100 pages and the last 50. That was enough for the plot, I didn't need to see the inbetween. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 9/24/2011

    " First book I've read by this author but I will definitely read more. It moves along slowly but the characters are very interesting, and the story has enough surprises to keep the reader interested. I especially enjoyed the description of the beautiful English countryside. "
