Reviews

"These stories evoke those black-and-white days when Alfred Hitchcock shuffled onto our walnut-encased televisions to present half an hour of spine-tingling tension... how refreshing it is to find the perfect length of story that should satisfy all enthusiasts of this genre." The Spectator "The Sounds of Crime is a collection of short stories from some of the world's foremost crimewriters. The form seems to have encouraged both first-person narrative and a more playful mode, from Val McDermid's ITV3-style detective puzzler to a rare short story by Peter James... Mark Billingham's dualistic insight into capital punishment is the most interesting take on the genre, while Laurence Block wins out for creepiness." Time Out London "...The collection creates a real feel of traditional story-telling entertainment." The Observer "Five short stories from tip-top authors... and only available on audio. Short stories work so well on audio and here, with specially commissioned stories the authors have crafted, tailored to the world of sound... I thought it an excellent collection of stories, a clever idea that's been well priced and well packaged and it deserves some top-line promotions... I'm already waiting for the sequel." The Bookseller"
