Where does The Wire in the Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In the top 15%, If you consider when it was written, it would be a lot higher. It was the first Val Mcdermid book I ever read and has lead to a long and happy succession of others.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wire in the Blood?
The twists and turns of the plot.
What about Michael Tudor Barnes’s performance did you like?
Does the characters very well, and kept the impetus of the story going.
Any additional comments?
I do find Dr. Hill's comment very worth a chuckle now and again, sort of a deadpan, grave humor, no pun intended.

As of this review I am sure I've read over a hundred novels about serial killers. What makes this one stand out is the focus is on a newly formed team of profilers. They are experienced cops, but entirely new to profiling. They are led, however, by a very prominent physcologist who specializes in criminal profiling, Tony Hill.
The integrity of this group is immediately challenged by a police force unimpressed with any use of physcology and this prejudice is continually exacerbated by an extremely manipulative killer. I learned a lot more about profiling than most any other book I've read.
The suspense kept me engrossed throughout the novel.
