Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Glendinning QC has lost faith in the legal system to which she has given her life. In an attempt to restore it, she has secretly devised a scheme to bring a guilty man back to court -- Graham Riley, whom she had successfully defended some ten years previously.
As part of an elaborate contingency plan, Elizabeth leaves the unsuspecting Anselm with a key to a safety deposit box, to be opened in the event of her death. Three weeks later she is found dead in the East End of London. Once the box has been opened, a chain of events is triggered as if from beyond the grave, and Anselm is led to fulfil what Elizabeth has begun.
The Gardens of the Dead is the second, thrilling outing for William Broderick's detective Anselm.

Possibly not suited to an audio format, this fiction work is slow and boring. I found myself losing patience and interest as the various poorly signalled shifts in time and place occurred. With so many distasteful or uninteresting characters, there was not one sufficiently appealing to justify the effort of continuing to the end. I reached the finish line only because I had paid to download the book.

The gardens of the dead

I downloaded (and wished I hadn't) Wiliam Brodrick's four books with Father Anselm in them, because I thought they might be (and sounded) interesting. As a previous reviewer has said, I only finished it because I had paid for it. I have one of his books on disc sitting in the car and I will probably throw that, as I will the other three (one completely unread), because they bore me to tears and I don't really care who does what to whom! Or, did what to whom!
