Dark Drink and Conversation

Such a Fun Story

Review by: The Audiobook ReviewOkay, so before I even get started, I must remind people about not judging books by their covers. I have no idea what the cover of Dark Drink and Conversation by Thomas Kennedy is supposed to represent. I guess it did pull my eye though, and I gave it a shot and enjoyed the heck of this cozy mystery doused in a bucket of Irish humour.

Set in the confines of Mulligans Pub, we get to experience the goings-on of the locals and the mischief they get up to. Pervert flashers saving lives. The Catholic Curate investigated for the murder of a drug kingpin and supply of pornographic CDs, the Incredible Hulk, a burglar, and pole dancers looking for husbands, just to name some of the colourful characters you'll meet.

Going into this I had no idea how compelling a story that Kennedy had actually created. Lots of plot being weaved in and out between the large cast of supporting characters, and told with such warmth and mirth, I found myself compelled to keep listening long after I should have put it away for the night.

The narrator, Gerard Doyle, did a great job with the narration. Being set in Dublin, Ireland, I did wonder if some of the accents might come on too strong, but that turned out not to be the case. Well produced, with no audio issues noted and a smooth flow.

Look past the cover of this and give it ago. You'll find yourself being sucked into this mystery and loving the locals.


I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I have not let this gift affect nor influence my opinions of this audiobook and have left an honest review.
