Novelty Value is Not Enough
I'm a big fan of Peter James otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with this very short book in the first place. It's a decent short story even if the final twist is something I think a lot of listeners will see coming from a mile off. Peter Panting breathes life into it and does a fair enough job of the narration so James completists will of course want to get this.
For me though next month I will be getting 45 hours of Brandon Sanderson epic fantasy for the same single credit and I can also get any of the full length novels by Peter James including the excellent Roy Grace series. It's a problem with the credit-based system of course but to me if you're going to release something this short it really should be something that's genuinely a bit special or also available for a much cheaper cash price than the fiver it's currently available for.
So, this has novelty value but not enough for me personally.
