The novel features yet another lead detective who's supposed to be deep and interesting, yet comes across as just the opposite: both dim and dull, except when he jumps to conclusions for no apparent reason. Further, the novel suffers from truly tedious back stories that lend nothing to the plot. Otherwise, the story is moderately interesting--enough to get one through a work-out at the gym--but that's about it.

Would you try another book from David Whellams and/or Gerard Doyle?
Mr. Doyle, absolutely; Mr. Whellams, not a chance.
Would you ever listen to anything by David Whellams again?
Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, he's a fine narrator./reader/performer.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Walking into the Ocean?
This book needed a strong editor with a lot of red ink. The lead character was not developed in any meaningful way. Instead he seemed to be a sexist, simple-minded git whose proclivity for secrecy was responsible for several deaths. I think the local chief of police was on the right track to insist the dolt be called back to London.
