Publisher's Summary

Life seems perfect in Valley Farm, a quiet community in Northumberland. Until a shocking discovery. The owners of a big country house have employed a young ecologist named Patrick to look after the place while they're away. But Patrick is found dead by the side of the lane into the valley.
DI Vera Stanhope arrives on the scene with her colleagues. When they look round the attic of the house - where Patrick has a flat - she finds a second body. All the two victims have in common is a fascination with moths.
As Vera is drawn into the claustrophobic world of this increasingly strange community, she realises that there may be deadly secrets trapped here....

the Moth Catchers

Excellent writer Anne Cleaves. Vera Stanhope her main Character is very different . The reader does a fantastic job, with a very difficult accent from Northern England. This is now a TV series and it is very well done.
Can't wait to get into the next book.

Narrator should be reading children stories.

This is a mystery story, not a light or funny novel. The narrator reads it like a fairy tale, no gravitas at all. It clashes with the scenes being depicted. One gets the impression one is listening in at childs' library afternoon. And yet the words are at odds with the cheerful performance.

In addition few of the main characters are at all likeable; steeped in self - pity and sneering envy. I DON'T recommend this series at all and certainly not read by this narrator..
