Summary

A trail of secrets. A dangerous discovery. A deadly turn.

Police officer Sebastian Clifford never planned on becoming a private investigator. But when a scandal leads to the disbandment of his London based special squad, he finds himself out of a job. That is, until his cousin calls on him to investigate her husband’s high-profile death, and prove that it wasn’t a suicide. 

Clifford’s reluctant to get involved, but the more he digs, the more evidence he finds. With his ability to remember everything he's ever seen, he's the perfect person to untangle the layers of deceit.

He meets Detective Constable Bird, an underutilized detective at Market Harborough’s police force, who refuses to give him access to the records he’s requested unless he allows her to help with the investigation. Clifford isn't thrilled. The last time he worked as part of a team it ended his career. But with time running out, Clifford is out of options. Together they must wade through the web of lies in the hope that they’ll find the truth before it kills them.

Includes bonus story Nowhere to Hide.

Clifford , ace P I

After following the excellent Cavendish & Walker novels, Sally Rigby's new main character is Seb Clifford, a former met detective. Excellent story ,Web of lies is full of twist and turns. Highly recommend.

Could not stop listening

A very good story line and hope there will be more to follow especially with Jonathan Keeble narrating. As I always look first for his name before choosing my audible book

Good book overall I enjoyed it.

This book was good but they changed the narrator and he turned Whitney Walker Geordie and some of his other voices were questionable. I personally prefer the lady who narrates the Cavendish and Walker series. Other than that the story was good and the characters progressed well through the book without losing the mystery storyline. I look forward to listening to the next one.

Good start

this was a good start to a new series. The narrator is always good, but agree with other reviewers, the Geordie accent came as a surprise , particularly given that the character is from Sally Rugby's other books and its easy to find out they're based in the Midlands!!!

Good story but some odd voice choices

Enjoyed the story and generally found the performance very listenable but Clifford sounds like an old man and Birdie sounds like a child. More mysteriously, why is Whitney Walker suddenly geordie?

Promising start to a new series

I quite enjoyed this and the characters. I didn’t find the main character boring at all as some other reviewers mentioned! I found all the characters interesting and unique and the narration was stellar. Eager to listen to the next one.

I love Sally Rigby books

I greatly enjoyed all books by Sally Rigby. The more recent ones have been even better. I love Cavendish and Walker and now am a big fan of Byrdie and Seb.

Fun and well done

All together a surprisingly good book. It has a fine, tight story with no glaring logic faults. The solution makes complete sense with no having to stretch the imagination to accept the conclusion. The characters are all likeable and real. The narration is pleasant, the editing flawless, and the sound quality pleasant for listening to on ear buds or open speaker. So in general, a great, fun, fast paced listen.

Hard to Finish

I like Sally Rigby’s writing but this one was tough. The new girl, Birdy, is so unlikable she made my teeth clench. If I hadn’t been bored, I never would have finished. Sebastian is a good character, but I doubt he would have indulgently smiled at this disrespectful, entitled and immoral young woman who wants everyone to indulge her whims. She’s awful!

An Edgeless Escape

A family friendly Disney Channel style murder mystery if there ever was one.

Despite this, it's very readable/listenable and unfortunately innofensive if that's what you're looking for. To be honest, the only reason I read this was because of Jonathan Keeble who is as excellent as ever.
