Would you try another book from Lesley Thomson and/or Paul Ansdell?

Probably not, unless it got rave reviews--as for the author. Paul Ansdell is good.

What could Lesley Thomson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The book seemed to be demonstrations of creative writing essays which were accomplished but not relevant to the story of this book. The book has an absurdly long intro/background--through chapter 12, much of which really didn't advance the plot or character development. I wondered if the book was really a cobbled-together combination of short pieces written, as I said, for a creative writing class.

Which character – as performed by Paul Ansdell – was your favorite?

I actually didn't like any of the characters except the dead detective. Sarah seemed to be off her trolley for no good reason that I could determine.

Was The Detective's Daughter worth the listening time?

Barely, but I made it through.

A very unique perspective. I enjoyed the story and the narrator. Amateur detectives usually devolve into extreme caricatures, not so in this case. This was not a jam packed thriller, but more a slow build with a natural and inevitable end.
