I knew there was a new Jackson Brodie book because Amazon tried to sell me the Kindle version, but I didn't know there was a Jason audio version, so thanks for the info.

I found him reading this a pleasant surprise too. :D
It would be great if BBC would make this into a series as well..

I thought it was interesting the things he said about reading the audio book compared to performing a role. :D

Poor guy's so tired. His shirt, too. Nice to see him reading. Thanks, thunder.

For the yanks you can pre-order on Amazon US rather than the UK link. I pre-ordered the CD. Comes out when I get surgery so this will greatly aid in my recovery!! :D

Good luck with the surgery and recovery, Marie. :hug

Just got through disk 5. It's a disturbing subject matter, but Ms. Atkinson deals with it appropriately. Always love hearing Jason do a variety of voices and accents.
