I have started reading Elizabeth George's book and I am absolutely hooked. She develops and expands each of the character's personality more fully in each book. I am now a devoted Lynley and Havers fan. Derek Jacobi is an excellent narrator. However, listening or reading an abridged book is, for me, a waste of time, not to mention the money invested for the audio. I read this unabridged book first, and it was fabulous! Then I listened to the abridged audio. There is just too much of the story left out. I was completely let down when the audio was over. In the future, I will only purchase the unabridged version of any book - written or audio. I truly wish that the publishers of Elizabeth George's books would go back and reproduce all of her books in the unabridged audio version. Ms. George is an excellent writer, Mr. Jacobi - wonderful narrator. Don't let the public down by down-sizing their incredible gift of telling a story.

Abridged this production may have been, but well worth the money.
Elizabeth George runs in the same literary circles as the likes of P. D. James and Ruth Randell. But the depth of emotional, in addition to intellectual, complexity she brings to her mysteries is unique.
