I love British Detectives and I love to hear P.D.James books. The story was original and excellently written, although might be a little slow paced for an American audience. For me, it was perfect and I enjoyed it greatly.

When I selected this book I read the reviews and listened to the audio sample. I liked both and bought the book. It wasn't until I started to listen that I noticed the length of the book. Eighteen hours is a long time!
Those hours went by quickly. There was no "filler". The characters are well developed. That is necessary to appreciate the complexities of the story. P.D. James is one of the great authors of mysteries. This book helped me to appreciate just how talented she was.
Penelope Dellaporta does a fine job of narration. Her diction is precise and every word is clear.
There is a slight technical glitch. Several times in the book a sentence is repeated. I suspect this may have something to do with the original recording. This sometimes occurred when books were on CD's. For instance, the last line on CD 1 might be repeated at the beginning of CD 2.
