I didn't enjoy this book very much, it was too complicated and it was difficult to follow and the plot wasn't particularly interesting. I have enjoyed other books by this author which were read well by the same narrator but on this occasion the narration was not up to the usual standard. The book is set in Norfolk and it is not unreasonable to expect place names to be consistently pronounced correctly. I am not sure if the narrator was attempting a Norfolk accent but at least one of the characters sounded Australian for no obvious reason. I will try more books by this author and I would be happy to listen to other books read by the narrator, but this book was disappointing.
Daniel Weyman awesome reading voice
to an awesome story as usual
thanks for a fantastic read
James has introduced just too many potential killers - too many balls to be kept in the air. As usual, she engages in gratiitous hyperbole, overuse of adjectives, doubtful imagery and even more doubtful vocab and has an annoying tendancy towards tautology. In the end she resorts to farce to deal with the surplus characrers - introducing a sub-plot too ridculous to be believed, a revalatory process that becomes laboured, and yet another disappointing but predictable love interest for our super-sleuth. Too long. Too complex. Too ambitious. It is saved only by another polished performance by narrator, Daniel Weyman.
