Probably my favourite book of the trilogy, but I found the jarring inconsistency between the pronunciation of key place and character names by the narrator of this book and the pronunciations used by the narrator of the first book rendered it unlistenable. Changing narrators for the second book makes sense, but first get your two voices to agree whether the stress falls on the first or second syllable of Morgon, and whether he is from Hed or Heed.

Good police procedural, poor production quality control

A solid conventional detective story to start a series that became very unconventional and exceptionally good. The audiobook was marred by chapters out of order, erratic volume levels and a sometimes disconcerting mismatch between the expression and meaning of the words being read. The book is well worth reading, but in future I will stick to my printed copy.
