It's probably impossible for Ian Rankin to write a bad story, but this isn't quite up to his usual high standard. The problem is that it is far too short, so that characters are left sketchily drawn and the plot is hurried through. I really would like to have this expanded into a full-length novel so that we can get into the people and their motivations properly. For example, it was never really clear what drove Gracie to get involved, and I would like to have learned more about Scott's wife and his history, and why he chose his particular job.
Having said all that, it was a good absorbing listen, and I was left guessing about the outcome until the end.
Jimmy Chisholm did a excellent job of narration. I've not listened to him before, but he was really clear and all the characters were well differentiated.
much prefer crime novels. Style not flowing and inclusive. quick read not recommended. like radio......
