What the Critics Say

"A proven master of the British police procedural, Robinson should find a large audience for this gripping, psychologically astute tale." (Publishers Weekly)
"This multilayered novel puts Banks firmly in the upper echelon of British mystery writers." (Library Journal)
"A devilishly good plotter...[Robinson's] characterizations are so subtle that even the psychological profiler is stumped." (New York Times Book Review)

Most Helpful

Boring story. Awful Narrator.

Probably no one could have brought this boring, repetitive and obvious story to life but the narrator here is the worst I?ve ever encountered in an audio book. The reader is so intent on affecting a broad Yorkshire accent that he pays no attention to character or content. All his women characters whine, all his male characters bark gruffly, all the time, no matter what they are saying. Avoid this one.

Reader kept me from buying this book

I can listen to a wide variety of readers. But this reader put me off to the point where I refused to get this book by one of my favorite authors. It wasn't even the voices of the characters that I found so objectionable, but his normal reading voice that seemed to attempt to infuse every word with intrigue. Some listerners may like that, but I can't listen to those few readers who do this. It's like overacting, and ruins the story for me.

- Trent Kittleman "I started listening to books in 1992 (Books on Tape rentals) and have continued to do so through today. Going to Audible's immediate download made it so much easier -- as you can see, I have 415 downloaded books -- and another 200 or so in CD's or cassettes. Thank all of you who post reviews. I rely heavily on the reviews to make my selections. (I plan to introduce my granddaughter to audible books in about another year!)"
