Fair for Elizabeth George

I have read the 7 or 8 most recent Inspector Lynley novels and am a big fan. I went back to this which was an earlier book in the series and found the story only fair and it seemed to drag on, a bit tedious at times.

Unacceptable ghost noises on recording

My husband is a recording engineer. When I asked him to identify the constant, annoying background noises on this recording of Payment In Blood, he quickly identified it as a poorly-erased earlier recording on the original media. It's not audible unless you listen on headphones/earbuds, but that's how I listen to recorded books. If you listen out loud, it won't concern you. But if not, you will want to avoid this book. It is so all-pervasive that it will drain all enjoyment of the book. I listen all the way, but I couldn't wait for the book to end. Wonder if I can get my money back.
