Not a lot happens even though four people are killed. We don't see any of the murders and much of the book is taken up by interviews of a long list of suspects. each of the suspects is in turn determined to be the killer, only to have our two law enforcement officers spend more time discussing why their conclusions are wrong, and then move on to the next suspect. i almost stopped after the first chapter which felt like a stream of consciousness introduction to the cast of characters. the author moves from one to the next so rapidly, they began to run together.
The narrator improved as he went along. His individual voices were fine but his narration lacked was flat in the beginning.

Second half was better, but just didn't connect with any of the characters. I like Sgt. Catchpoll. Matt Addis was so soothing in his narration at the beginning that I was getting drowsy listening. not sure I will listen to second book or not.
Great book a perfect blend of PD James and Ellis Peters. There is real promise with these novels i can only hope they live up to it.
