Publisher's 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.

Good story and narration..

I enjoy David Blake's books. This one was really a mystery, since it seemed to be different killers and blackmailers and it was tough figuring out who was who and who did what. The one thing I really, really hated in this story was what happened to Alice. That was not at all necessary, Mr. Blake.

There was no romance, just an attempt at one, and the F-bomb was used 12 times.

As for the narration: Love, love, love Jonathan Keeble. Fantastic at voices and emotions when he reads.

Good, quick listen.

So far, all the books in the series are good for what they are- quick, easy listens to get you through while waiting for something else. Easy to solve, not too intense. I recommend for that and for Jonathan Keeble, whose narration keeps it lively!

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.

Can’t wait for book 8!!!!

Excellent as usual.
Although I doubt this many murders happen on the broads or Norfolk as a whole.

Predictable and dull

I love good detective fiction and as an actor, I am also very fussy about it being well-read and correctly pronounced (eg no American pronunciations for English place names and the mispronunciation of other words). But this story bored me, I knew from the start who the culprit was, I didn't believe the characters, didn't care about them and lost interest really fast. There are so many good writers of this genre out there - I didn't think this was up there with them. And the reading attempted to give the characters some life, but although I know it is hard to depict a man if you are a woman and vice versa, the women in this came across weightless and fluffy. Not a success for me!

Good story as ever. Only one issue is with the reading: the reader needs to pronounce Acle correctly!

Stormy indeed

More of a page-turner than the last one - a good story which moved on quickly.

Oh dear is he trying to be funny?

The story get progressively bad as it goes on. The relationship between the detective and his boss is excruciating. I realised that it was so ludicrous that the author was trying to be funny. Well I didn't sign up for "funny". The fact that it was so not funny doesn't help. Terrible. Won't be delving any further into this back catalogue.

Thank you David Blake

I really appreciated this book. I enjoy David Blake's series and Jonathan Keeble as the narrator just makes it perfect. There was a time I feared this series was coming to an end but it seems to be back on form and a new lease of live has been breathed into the story opening the way to further books that I will be eagerly awaiting. Thank you David for keeping me thoroughly entertained with the mystery, character relationships but most of all the humour. Very entertaining.

I do love this series

Funny so very funny. I’ve not laughed so loudly in a audible book for ages. I’m not keen on Jonathan Kkeenles voice he’s very loud.
