Review: Three Lives Down by Rachel Amphlett @RachelAmphlett @CraigBeck

So. Rachel Amphlett has another audio book out. Book three in her Dan Taylor series as a matter of fact, narrated once more by the fabulous Craig Beck. Now, I know I hide it rather well but I am somewhat of a fan of thrillers and I am rather partial to this series. I am not sure at this stage, as I have listened to all three book on audio rather than read them, whether I have a random book crush on Dan Taylor or on Craig Beck (sorry – possibly best to run for the hills now just in case 😉 )

Anyhoo, I will share my review of this latest addition to the series in just a mo, but first of all, here is what the book is all about. Continue reading “Review: Three Lives Down by Rachel Amphlett @RachelAmphlett @CraigBeck”
