This time we get into the mind and habits of s serial killer, pursued by a wider circle of interested parties. Excellent and very modern, and Charles Luke really shines. My only complaint is that Lugg and Amanda don't play a part.
Would you consider the audio edition of Hide My Eyes to be better than the print version?
Have not read the print edition.
What did you like best about this story?
Her characterizations are always excellent. People are vivid, well-rounded, unusual and individualistic.
Have you listened to any of David Thorpe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
David Thorpe is fantastic. Although most people say that Frances Matthews reads Allingham better (and he is great), David Thorpe pushes the envelope and makes each character so individualistic. He has great enthusiasm and attention to detail in his reading. People don't like the high whine he puts into Campion's voice, but that is how Allingham describes Campion's voice in Black Dudley.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I wouldn't make a film of it as, although it was good, it was kind of a pale shadow of Tiger In The Smoke.
Any additional comments?
Allingham can do no wrong.
What made the experience of listening to Hide My Eyes the most enjoyable?
This is a pacey story - moving much faster than the other Campion books. Luke plays a key role and although I didn't like the voice this reader gave him the story was very gripping and enjoyable.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Campion - who else in one of these books?
What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?
I freely admit that Philip Franks is my absolute favourite for reading these books but he never recorded this one. David Thorpe did very well and gave each character a different voice.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
That would give away the plot. There are several poignant moments when someone realises the truth in stages.
