Having just finished the Frieda Klein stories by Nicci French, I was looking for a worthy replacement... Scared that I couldn't find one, I bought this. WOW! Fantastic, I enjoyed it thoroughly (couldn't stop listening to it!) and am thrilled that this is a long, long series of books! I'm going to start the second in the series straight away. If in doubt, BUY IT!

Roy Grace is a really unpleasant character. Every woman he meets is judged on her looks and he is perpetually aggravated by minutiae. He'd be the worst colleague in the world but I think he's meant to be the hero. Here's a typical description of one of his co-workers: 'Either she has rocks in her bra or seriously large breasts'. The word 'horny' crops up more than once which is frankly unforgivable. I could hear Alan Partridge all the way through. The author seems to be trying to up his word count by describing every single thing that happens. The scene where Grace is in a pub and it describes every single detail of the drinks is excruciating. The narrator was a little over enthusiastic and sounded like an outraged Daily Mail reader in parts. I stuck it out until the end to find out what happened to the missing guy - the plot wasn't terrible. Using a medium to solve bits of the case is a lazy device though and led me feeling like I'd wasted a lot of time for nothing.

The twists keep you guessing as they're not as obvious as they seem at first.
