Cerebral! Not idle listening.
Classic James, don?t listen in the car. I missed a clue (or two) and will now, happily have to allocate some time to re listen and see where it popped up. Her characters, scenes, storyline are richly detailed and layered; her command of the language is amazing a true artist.
Charles Keating the narrator?s performance is natural and believable. Some of the audio books I have heard the performer gets in the way of the story, not the case here.
You owe it to yourself to set aside the almost fifteen hours to listen. Concentration required.

No one can make words sound more comfortable than P.D. James. She does it once again in this especially wonderful murder mystery, introducing us to new characters as well as once again familiarizing us with the old pro - Adam Dalgliesh.
What makes this listen so enjoyable is the extraordinary competence of Charles Keating. As a reader, he is everything one would want, playing male and female characters with aplomb and expertise. He's incredibly wonderul with James' prose.
