Good to the last drop

I really enjoyed this book - there were 2 intertwined stories, and even though the bulk of the solution was revealed before the end, there were enough loose ends left to keep me hooked and saddened that the book was over. The scenarios were very original, and the main police characters quirky and likeable. I listen to and read a lot of books, and the originality of this stood out.

My only complaint is the SLOW narrator and pauses that had me checking my player. The narrator must have been paid by the minute because he made maximum use of every possible pause. I did get used to it eventually, but it detracted from the story.

British Procedural Mystery

While it is not fast paced, there was good character development which I believe is where the strength of the novel lies. Several folks commented on the narrator's slow style. I became accustomed to it, wasn't distracted by it and found him easy to listen to. Two mysteries are being investigated within the novel. I liked the way the author shifted back and forth because it kept my interest. Sometimes you could anticipate what was going to happen but not always. This is probably because you began to understand the characters better.
I honestly enjoyed this book although I realize this is not a glowing review. I would say that if you don't mind a slower paced story-line with a narrator that may or may not irritate you, I think it is a great book. I did not object to the narrator. This appears to be the first of the 3 novels involving Faraday & Winter that Audible carries. I am planning on listening to the additional ones.
