Summary

Storm Force is another addictive gripping crime thriller, the seventh in a chilling series of serial killer books, ones that will rapidly convert followers of L J Ross, Faith Martin, Joy Ellis, Damien Boyd and J M Dalgliesh into David Blake devotees.

Two marked men, three missing women and an approaching storm, powerful enough to change the Norfolk landscape forever. As a category four storm looms large over Norfolk’s wide open horizon, DI John Tanner is given the task of solving a high-profile murder. But when another body is found just as three women are reported missing, he faces a race against time to uncover the truth before the storm moves in to destroy everything in its path, including the evidence Tanner so desperately needs.

Thumbs down John Tanner

I nearly gave up on this outing of Tanner’s. The plot was interesting but the behaviour of Tanner - smirking, making inane comments, conducting interviews with poorly framed questions - I was so irritated especially as I’ve enjoyed previous books. Also Tanner’s lady friend Christine seems remarkably stupid expecting a senior detective to keep arrangements when embarking on a serious crime investigation. Equally what was Tanner thinking even making a date when murders have just been committed? His bosses were also annoying beyond belief. In addition, granted unlike vast numbers of listeners, I find Jonathan Keeble just too histrionic at times. I prefer more restrained, laconic renditions. I’m not sure whether or not I shall continue with this series.

Gripping compelling police drama lots of twists

Really enjoyed this next book in the series good to see Tanned back on the job and maybe slowly getting back into the dating scene with Christine, this book was full of twists and turns looking forward to the next book. Narration was brilliant as always by Jonathan Keeble

Please calm Forester down!

I’ve loved this series and the characters from the beginning but just getting a bit fed up of DCI Forester’s argumentative, annoying outbursts. Seems OTT and a tad unrealistic. Please can he calm down for the next book?

Well up to standard

If you liked the earlier stories this will tick all the boxes. Great narration, really brings the characters to life, but of course, if you’re listening to them in order you already knew that!

Another great story in the series

Haven’t finished reading this book yet but I’m enjoying it as much as the previous ones. I felt like I had to write a review before finishing just to share my frustration with regards to Superintendent Whittaker. On several occasions he is referred to as the man in charge of Norfolk Constabulary. I fail to understand how such a basic mistake can be made in this genre!

Great Story

Another great DI Tanner story from David Blake. It kept me engrossed right till the very end. Once again, Jonathan Keeble’s narration is top notch. He really is the best in the business.
