I was looking for something light and entertaining in the British mystery genre and since I had enjoyed other books by this author I took a plunge on his new release that didn’t have any reviews yet. Big mistake! The description sounded fine but once I started listening I had a hard time getting into it. This only got worse as I found the main character both not very likable and not very believable. Her actions didn’t seem plausible- and after I kept listening I realized I didn’t care about what happened next. Blah. The narrator was also wrong for the book and added to my lack of interest. The 1st person main character was supposed to be an American- but whatever accent the narrator used it didn’t ring true to the character. Life’s too short for bad books so I stopped listening after a couple of hours and returned it. Save your credit! I do like the other books by this author in his Max Tudor series but if I had read this book first (not Max Tudor) I think I would have avoided the author in the future!

I really have like GM Malliet’s other books but this was really bad. All the characters are completely unlikable. The editing on the audio has several errors. The US accent and pronunciation off in several places—tough when the narrator is supposed to be from the USA. I can’t believe I even made it through to the end just to be rewarded with a completely predictable roll-your-eye ending.
