I absolutely never identified with the main character (Molly). Her every action was the opposite of what mine would have been. I found it a little disorienting and maybe just a little interesting (hence the star). The only believable and likable character was (Molly's) father. I enjoyed the narrator.

Sadly I found this book tedious in the extreme and a far cry from the usually excellent Reginald Hill books. I am a huge fan, originally for the Dalziel and Pascoe books although The Stranger House is in my top ten books ever. Find it hard to believe that both books are by the same author. I tried to persevere to find out what happened, but somewhere in Europe I stopped caring.... :(

Would you try another book written by Reginald Hill or narrated by Julia Barrie?
I have purchased many other Reginald Hill books in the past
What was most disappointing about Reginald Hill’s story?
Why bother writing this? It's like he wrote it when he was a student and brought it out to capitalise on his fame in order to make more money.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Awful, northern accents
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Spy's Wife?
Any additional comments?
Save your money. Even if you've enjoyed other things that he's written.
