Well written. It’s an easy read. Good story line.
Not the book to read if you’re looking to feel good about the world.

The narration is edited poorly - the change from one “part” of the book to the next is abrupt and ruins the flow. It would be easily fixed by adding a pause, and perhaps an announcement of the shift.

Thank goodness it is narrated by a female and male voice, so you realise the shift, but it would have been so easy to make it better.

The rest of the narration is good.

This is a bit of a rambling tale, with many convoluted elements to keep track of, but it’s a compelling story line, and I was very happy I persisted. Unexpected twists keep coming to the end.

This third book in the series further develops a lot of the characters and story line and ties the whole thing so nicely together at the end.

An articulate and well researched narrative on the history and current state of racism in the UK. While it has a lot that relates directly to the UK, there are common threads that will apply to any predominantly white society in the world.

Loved it. A wonderful complex plot and wonderful strong characters. The balance of past and present was handled very well.
I will be seeking more from Natasha Lester!

Some reviews (US site) have said this is predictable and not worth a listen, but I disagree. While there are some predictable elements to the story for those who enjoy reading this genre, the story still has a great plot and interesting characters. There is quite a lot of gruesome detail of the murders, so be prepared for that. I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series.
