The mysteries I enjoy most are those with an intricate plot, an absence of graphic violence, and character development. This book has all these elements.
Simon Prebble is one of the best narrators I've heard. He adds much to the story without doing anything distracting.
I enjoy "police procedurals" and this author is one of the best at the genre.

Could not stop listening to this and almost stayed up all night. I've been a dedicated fan of Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series from the beginning. About three books back, I sensed that perhaps Robinson (and Banks) were losing their way a bit. I am glad to see that in this book Robinson returns to tight plotting, great detective work and perserverence separately by Banks and Annie, interesting secondary characters, fascinating locations, contemporary and believable crimes, nasty as well as conflicted villains, and wonderful, chilling location vignettes. Add to this the always superb Simon Prebble as narrator and it's hard not to overdo the superlatives.
