From the very start I was riveted by this reading - Simon Russell Beale makes a wonderful job of an excellent book. No mispronunciations or hesitations, no moments when you suddenly realise that the narrator hasn't actually read the story until this very moment - this is a masterly piece of work. Somehow the voice and story are so well matched that at the end you find it hard to separate them, but I suppose that's what being an actor is all about. This forms a link to the plot in a thoroughly bizarre twist. Thoroughly recommended.

A number of Londoners lives converge around the mixed neighbourhood of NW1. Mary Jago, a museum curator provides a life-saving act to save the life of Lieukemia sufferer, Leo Nash, whilst escaping a violent relationship. Dog walker Leslie Bean has a strange past combined with an avaricious nature; drug addict Hob will do anything for his latest fix and finally, the cultured Roman takes to the streets after a major tragedy blights his life.
This Audiobook was truly sublime. Rendell's talent for telling the stories of a group of diverse people is amazing and I adored the twisty nature of the plot.
The narrator, Simon Russell-Beale was brilliant too. Truly a 5* listen.
