In the north of England, single women are beginning to disappear from weddings. A pattern soon becomes clear: Someone is crashing the festivities and luring the women away - only to leave the victims' bodies in their own burned-out cars in remote locations. Tony and Carol are called upon to investigate - but this may be the toughest case they've ever had to face. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Paula McIntyre and her partner Elinor must deal with a cruel cyber-blackmailer targeting their teenage ward, Torin.
Impeccably plotted and intensely gripping, Insidious Intent reaffirms Val McDermid's place as Britain's reigning Queen of Crime.

Another stellar mystery. Unfortunate narration.
I struggled through nearly half the audio book before deleting it and downloading the novel on kindle to finish this excellent new installment in Val McDermid's Tony Hill/Carol Jordan mysteries.
I'd grown so used to Gerard Doyle's narrations, this new voice threw me for a loop with his interpretations of Ms. McDermid's stellar characters.
Others may enjoy this narrator, as he's enthusiastic. Unfortunately, he's not my cup of tea.

WHERE IS GERARD DOYLE????
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, because I wanted to know what is going on with Tony and Carol, with Torin, and with Stacey. No, because it was painful to listen.
What didn’t you like about Saul Reichlin’s performance?
He is no right for this series. The cadence and accents were off. The tones were wrong. In some instances it was hard to distinguish one character from the other. The voices of Stacey, Carol and Tony were wrong, wrong, wrong. Torin's was fine.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I confess I am ignorant of the process of publishing an audiobook, but I guess sometimes the narrator changes for any reason. Please try to maintain some semblance to the voices already established in the series. It can kill the experience.
