One of the great noir stories

One of the great noir stories, albeit one that could have ended a few chapters earlier. The last two twists were unnecessary. The first 9/10ths were brilliant

Excellent performance by Jeff Harding, except for a hilariously bad Scottish accent. American performers generally cannot do Scottish or Irish accents and only spoil things when they try to.

Great book, great narrator, but that Scottish accent!

The narrators voice has to match the tone and mood of the book for me to be able to enjoy an audio book and not find their voice/accent a distraction. Jeff Harding was a perfect narrator for this dark, moody LA based novel, an insight into so many types of pain and a story where every character is morally corrupt. It's a wonderful novel and Harding is great- but, that Scottish accent he attempts is nothing short of ridiculous. I don't know what he's basing it on, but it sounds like Mrs Doubtfire doing an impression of an Irish person at panto. Its absolutely dreadful. If only someone else had read those parts.
