Interesting but I didn't care for it as much as previous books for some reason. I found the characters confusing - maybe because the narrator made everyone sound pretty much alike. Often, there was little difference between Roy and Glen, for example.
The story was disappointing. One of the reasons I read British stories is because of the British characters. Too many Americans in this one (and the previous one as well.)
And then there's still Sandy. I certainly hope this comes to an end soon. But her storyline did get more interesting.
And find a better narrator.
This was a bit of a tame, boring outing from Roy Grace. I love him, but it seems like P James is getting stuck in a rut with the series.
A rock/film star is coming to Grace's hometown and a stalker threatens her and the production she's starring in.

I love the Roy Grace series by Peter James, but I really am so disappointed by the choice of narrator in this case. I have listened to all the books in this series, maybe the none of the other narrators were available (I have only now realised that there has been more than one - bravo to the previous ones who have done such a good job keeping it consistent for the listener!) but the new voices completely change the character of individuals who we have grown to love.
It is not this narrators fault but he was a poor choice for this series. I almost can't listen to this book. Maybe I will get used to it as I am only an hour in at the moment.
I'm sure the book will be enjoyable to listeners who have not read the previous books, and those who are already into the series will just have to make do with this one in order to find out what happens.
Seriously tempted to buy the paper version so I can read with the "proper" voices. (maybe I have just uncovered the purpose of the new narrator? Does this drive up paper sales?)
