Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Why, oh why, oh why didn't they have the wonderful Jane McFarlane perform this one? The writing is typical smart, lucid Mina -- the performance is distractingly mediocre. Not sure I'm going to finish listening -- and I've never done that before. Pity.
Would you be willing to try another one of Moira Quirk’s performances?

This is the third book in a cop series in which the same detective, Alex Morrow , and some of the same supporting cast reappear and evolve. This is not for those who crave action, suspense, a lot of violence and sex--which I also like if well written.
Awash in judiciously selected minutiae , and more than adequqte plot lines, each book reveals a little more about the recurring characters, without rehashing the last book --which is great for listeners like me who read them chronologically and closely together.
I happened upon Mina by accident, wasn't sure after the first one but by the second book was lhooked. Alex Morrow et al havgrown on me, but what I really have been enjoying is Mina's knack for richly nuanced exchanges between characters. Set in nicely detailed backdrops Mina creates a sense of intimacy unusual in your average cop series,
So far the narrators have been pitch perfect for Mina's style. Hope that continues; I'd like to read the rest of the series,
