Publisher's Summary

Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face she hoped never to see again. It's definitely him, the same police officer, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape. Or so she thinks.
The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road. Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in such a peculiar way, or why 'he is no less dead' was painted on Blundy's study wall.
And she can't explain why she avoided Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her life.
Because although Nicki is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent...

Best yet, can't wait for the next one

I love this series and author. She's not for everyone but if you like the long meandering twists and turns plot wise and psychological wise of Gillian Flynn you'll love these. This was definitely the best yet and after blowing through all of this series in the last few months I'm sad to have to wait. I also liked having multiple narrators, since the books have the division I think the audio should too. My only complaint is all the rest of the books and the facts of the character make the name Proust rhyme with boost, not like proud with an st. It's supposed to be the same as the author. Otherwise I liked the performance.

This thing drags on and on and on....

What did you like best about The Telling Error? What did you like least?

I like the narrators; they were both excellent.

What was most disappointing about Sophie Hannah’s story?

Took too long to get to the point, and all that reading of the email and text headers was excruciating.

What does David Thorpe and Julia Barrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

voice and accent

Was The Telling Error worth the listening time?

Not all of it.

Little Pace

I used to be a passionate fan of Sophie Hannah. "Little Face" was nothing short of brilliant, and the next 2/3 in the "Culver Valley" series were (almost) equally as good. If you're a lover of the "puzzle unravelled" type of mystery I'd recommend any of these.
However from there I'm afraid things have gone downhill fast.
Ponderous prose, weak characterisation and plodding tempo seem to have become the order of the day.
I'm afraid that this one is quite possibly the worst of the lot.
To call the plot contrived and convoluted would be the nicest thing I could say about it.
Compared with her earlier work I'm afraid this is starting to feel like "ok I suppose I'd better knock out another one". I'm reading dialogue I really don't care about from characters I used to love but who have become...... monotonous I'm afraid.

It's sad, but I think it's time for me

Great as always apart from Damon Blundy accent!!

The accent used for Damon Blundy was the most aggravating narration ever experienced in a Sophie Hannah audio book. It made me want to fast forward every time. Would have much rather had Julia Barrie narrating the male parts in the book as usual.
