Not up to par
I love Val McDermid's psychological thrillers. However, it was really hard to like the protagonist of the story. The story itself was far fetched and toward the end it was completely unbelievable. The narrator is wonderful though.

Not One of My Favorite McDermid Books
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I have no real feelings about this book. I have always loved McDermid mystery books and would have purchased this anyway, based on past experience. It was somewhat boring and disappointing this time, as I always look forward to her newest work. Based on this experience , I will think twice about purchasing her next title.
If you’ve listened to books by Val McDermid before, how does this one compare?
The characters in this book were not at all sympathetic to me. It seems artificial in that there are no main male characters. It is heavily weighted with lesbian characters and not well balanced with other viewpoints or storylines. Past books had much better plots.
Which scene was your favorite?
Can't remember any favorite.
Was Trick of the Dark worth the listening time?
Would not recommend this whole heartedly.
