Not unless they were already a Peter Robinson fan
How did the narrator detract from the book?
OMG he was so awful. He has a nice voice, but he's a reader, nothing more. And his voice range when it comes to attempting to perform a female is laughable. Every women came off sounding like some geriatric elf, breathy, squeaky, ridiculous. Really detracted from taking any of them seriously. And this is a problem for a book that has so many female characters: Annie, Geri, Jenny, Gervaise, Linda Fuller . . . they all sounded so silly. WHY? Why do audio producers hire readers who 1) can't even give a decent range of believable voices to the main characters and 2) simply read the book aloud rather than perform it. What happened to Simon Prebble, who was doing this series for years? I hope this is a temporary change, because Prebble is a master.
Do you think Sleeping in the Ground needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
I was disappointed by this outing from Robinson. It wasn't any kind of a puzzle, there weren't multiple suspects. Also, it was so unbelievable that all the cops would buy the suicide at the beginning - it's so frustrating to read along when actions are that implausible.

If you love British police procedurals, Peter Robinson is a must read. Attention to detail, great misdirection, and characters we recognize as old friends.
