Tammy Franklin has learned too much about death, too quickly. Two years ago she lost her mother to a long, lingering illness and now the body of the woman her father married in an attempt to replace his wife has been found on a railway embankment close to the Franklin farm.
And this time the death is murder.As Superintendent Markby knows only too well, Tammy also stands to have her father taken from her. For Hugh Franklin is suspect number one...
There are some audiobook authors that I can always rely on for a reasonably good detective story and Ann Granger is one of them (Reginald Hill and Henry Mankell also). Granger does not always stick to the storyline but gets there in the end.

What did you like about this audiobook?
Interestung characters, good story. I've listened to all the available books in the Markby and Mitchell series on Audible with several narrators. Disliked narrator Bill Wallis' use of a slight Scottish accent for Meredith Mitchell.

Another good story spoilt by this narrator. Who told him Meredith needed a Scottish accent? Particularly an excruciatingly pseudo Scots accent which seems to come and go at the narrator's whim.
Ann Granger's stories are good but please do not let Bill Wallis narrate any more of these books.
This is the first Ann Granger I have read/listened to and I am enjoying her relaxed and very natural style. All credit must go to Bill Wallis who narrates so well, and whose portrayal of the character's voices, with just a slightly different nuance for each, is perfect.
