Too many characters causes obliqueness.
Underwhelming and kind of insulting.
In short: no. Sadly, while I've very much enjoyed the Mrs Murphy series up until this point, this book rubbed me the wrong way.
The most I can say without getting too spoilery is that the incredible amount of victim blaming in this book left me with a bitter taste in my mouth.
Yes! Kate Forbes's performance is flawless as usual.
For me, it wasn't. If you're a fan of the series, give it a listen, but be prepared to be left feeling uneasy, and maybe even angry, instead of satisfied with the grand reveal.
