What did you love best about The Kill Room?
This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best, a really rivetting story with no boring bits.
What does Kerry Shale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The ability to do the gardening, the washing and go to the gym without having to put it down.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Rhyme and Sachs are such a cute couple.
I try to be fair about Jeffrey Deaver but really, the last couple of books have felt like he was just 'phoning it in'. This book is fairly pedestrian but the performance is absolutely spectacular. Kerry Shale thoroughly enlivens proceedings with a huge range of voices and accents giving the whole story a gloss it perhaps doesn't entirely deserve. There are good books which don't really work as audiobooks, and some not so good books which work marvellously well as audiobooks. Frankly, Kerry Shale could make the telephone book sound interesting so I'm recommending 'The Kill Room' on the basis of this alone.
Off to search for books with Kerry Shale as reader.

I love Jeffery Deaver books but I'm 4 chapters in and I'm not sure I can carry on listening to this performance - Kerry Shale's voice strikes firstly as very sickly as if he's just eaten something really sweet - this is backed up when you actually hear him rattling a boiled sweet on his teeth. It then becomes very clear that he's suffering with a head cold as each character has nasal issues. I genuinely started to feel i'll - I don't know if this guy is normally very good but turning up for a reading with a stinking cold is unprofessional and then the company putting it out without checking its quality is a second fail - I'd like my credit back please!
