Good but not her best...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's worth a listen. But I was disappointed that it dealt with such a serious subject like domestic violence in such a predictable, slightly old-fashioned way. The victims were all women, the aggressors all male. Would have made it more interesting to have had just one case where the genders were reversed...

What about Nigel Anthony’s performance did you like?

Well-paced.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

In a similar ilk to other Wexford novels.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed Regs dilemma over his relationship with his two daughters and him coming to terms with finding one much harder to get on with than the other

Brain teaser

As usual an excellent story you think you know the outcome but the ending is always a surprise. I would encourage all lovers of crime stories to read this book

Classic Rendall well narrated

excellent plot with several sub plots all wonderfully intertwined and perfectly resolved. The narration is excellent with good use of a range of voices and accents.

Really glitchy audiobook

This was a good, solid if not slow story. The narration was good (Wexford’s voice was spot on from the TV version) and the characters felt real, although there were many to hold on to and I got confused at times. However, the recording itself is terrible. There are gaps, repeated sentences, a whole portion of the book which skips forward like a CD and parts that begin mid sentence. The chapters bear no relation the assigned chapter points so it’s hard to navigate if you need to go back. Really awful editing together - needs re doing!

Best ever Wexford

I’ve started listening to the Wexford books - back to front for some reason! This has been, so far my favourite. They have all been so good, but Rendell has really struck a chord with this one.
