David Rogers was a doctor, handsome, charming and rich. He lived the lifestyle of the consultant - expensive clothes, top restaurants, exclusive clubs - until someone killed him in the hallway of his lovely million-plus-pound house. Was he killed for passion, professional jealousy, or plain old money?
Bill Slider and his firm are thrown into the mystery, but they soon discover that nothing is as it seems, for though David's girlfriends are plenty, none of them can tell Slider anything about where he worked or exactly what it was he did....

I enjoy Cynthia Harrod-Eagles' novels. This was the first I have had as an audio book and have given up on it. Nothing to do with Cynthia - all to do with the narrator. The differentiation between the characters is poor and a police-person I took to be female from the voice is actually male. I have listened to the first few chapters several times to get to grips with the story, but have now abandoned. (If I had had a hard copy available, I would have read it thus far to try to sort the problem before resuming the audio, but I don't.) Too much effort is required to determine who is speaking so it ceases to be engaging. An expensive mistake.
