good story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm making my way through all of the Hill and Jordan series and i enjoyed the story but the very poor accents put on my the narrator really annoyed me and i'm now not sure about the the rest of the series now

What didn’t you like about Saul Reichlin’s performance?

very poor regional accents

If this book were a film would you go see it?

yes

Good but spoilt by narrator

An unlikely plot but quite entertaining. Like many of this series it is spoilt by the reader. He sounds prim and elderly and poor old Saul just doesn't do accents (with possible exception of a rather comic, constipated scouse).
