Publisher's Summary

Featuring the return of Sergeant Charlotte "Charlie" Zailer and DC Simon Waterhouse, The Dead Lie Down is another sophisticated, addictive listen from the new mistress of the page-turner.
Ruth Bussey once did something wrong - horribly wrong - and was nearly destroyed by her punishment. Now, she has tentatively rebuilt her life and unexpectedly found love with a man named Aidan Seed. But Aidan also has a secret - he killed someone years ago, a woman named Mary Trelease. Ruth's horror turns to confusion when she realizes that she knows Mary Trelease, and Mary is very much alive.

The Dead Lie Down

The story line is great. The author did an excellent job of painting a mental picture of what the reader/listener should see in their minds eye. The narrator had an excellent and very pleasant voice that was appealing to me as a listener. The one drawback for me was that I could not easily keep up with which character was speaking. I wish the narrator had changed her voice or inflection to indicate the different characters. If you don’t suffer from needing to hear different voice inflections for different characters you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Even if you do you will like the plot and pace of the story.

Not my favorite Sophie Hannah

Any additional comments?

There were a few things I didn't like about this book, including Charlie acting sort of unrealistically in a whiney way. But the worst part was the on-and-on-and-on about art. Maybe I'm just not a super art-lover - but the characters were droning and redundant and I actually considered just not finishing the book. Too bad because many of Hannah's other books are fabulous.
