The basic story was good, the narrator was excellent but I found the heroine to be painfully naive and the main male character, supposedly God's answer to any maiden's dream, was an unpleasant thug which no sensible girl would fancy.
this is a great book, full of suspence and excitement. couldn?t put the book down. was happy to rewind just to hear a part that i had missed. this is the second linda le plante i have heard and cant wait to listen to others.
Very disappointing after enjoying other books by this author. The language was too strong - too many F words etc, and the subject matter (horrific murders and sexual child abuse) too graphic for comfort.
This is a good thriller - what you would call a page turner if you were reading as opposed to listening.
Thoroughly enjoyable, fast paced crime thriller set in the UK and written with the English 'voice'. The narrator did a great job with the female characters, but some of her male voices, Lewis in particular, raised a few laughs. Lewis' voice was ponderous and I wonder if the sound engineer deepened the tone by slowing it down... anyway, I was not the only one to be amused. Luckily the writing was strong enough that these giggle moments didn't pull me right out of the magic of the story. Overall MOST enjoyable and worth the $.
"An English Treasure"
Another good yarn by Lynda La Plante which is brought to life by great reading. Kim Hicks has a lovely voice and an empathy for the story which ensures the reading makes the most of the story line. Thoroughly enjoyed listening and imagining what the stables and surrounding country side looked like. If you like Lynda La Plante I would thoroughly recommend this version.
