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.

As always the Lincoln Rhyme stories are great and I wanted to listen cover to cover. My only negative is the narrator. I've listened to most of the other Rhyme series and this voice was so so off putting. I'm about to start the next book, but if it's the same voice I will start something else as I don't think I could listen to more than the 4hrs I have already had of his voice!
