To be fair, I cannot rate the book itself because I couldn't get through it. I love Mark Billingham's books, and Robert Glenister has been the perfect narrator -- gets all the accents, the voices, the rhythms of speech. This narrator -- why would they use an American narrator for a book in which a range of accurate British accents is so important? -- speaks at the speed of molasses, goes in and out of accents (when he bothers to take a stab at them -- mostly he butchers them) and makes the book boring. Because I like Billingham's work and am interested in reading this new stand-alone, I will buy the printed book and enjoy it that way -- life is too short to listen to a narrator butcher a book. Who picks these people?

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The reader helped a rather limp story.
Would you recommend In the Dark to your friends? Why or why not?
No. I have already forgotten the story.
Have you listened to any of Stephen Hoye’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
My first Stephen Hoyle and will look for more.
