"Mina's detached but unsentimental view of man's inhumanity to man...never flinches, and her deadpan style serves her purpose well." (Guardian)

Good story marred by the narration
I down-loaded this book on the strength of a previous Denise Mina book I'd listened to. It's a good story but spoiled for me by the narrator. I see that another listener has commented on this. I wish I'd read her review and not down-loaded solely on the strength of the author! I found it difficult to concentrate on the story at first as I was mesmerized by the extraordinary reading style of the narrator: it wasn't the Glasgow accent, I'm used to this I'm Scottish, it was the weird intonation swinging down and ending sentences on an up. I persevered with the book and enjoyed the story, but I can't recommend it because of the narration.

Denise Mina is a good writer but is badly let down by the reader of this book. Katy Anderson puts her inflections in the wrong places, pronounces corridor as corri-door and generally irritates the listener with a reading that is not fluid and seamless. I will not buy any books read by Katy Anderson.
