Excellent narration!

I totally disagree with the other reviewer. The book starts off very slow and at times the only reasons I didnt give up were because I have yet to read a book by MW I didnt like, and because the narrator was so great. She is able to create different voices for each character unlike some narrators that make all the females sound alike and all the male characters sound alike. I'm not British, but I listin to so many British novels I can often differentiate between the regional accents. Ms. Merlington does an excellent job. Oh, and BTW, I'm glad I stuck with the book because it develops into a great British murder mystery. I highly recommend!

Narration Spoiled Entire Book

Fake British accent, harsh voices, made this novel almost impossible to finish. I cannot give an unbiased review of the story because the narration was so distracting.
