Firstly, it's important to read the Verhoeven books in order because if you don't, then there will be several spoilers and you will miss the back stor..Show More »y of many of the characters. This is the least grisly of the books, and in my opinion, the most poignant. It is read by Peter Noble, as is Irene, (book 1) and he is superb. Book 2, Alex, has a different reader who is not nearly so good.
Camiille Verhoeven is a vivid character, barely 4 ft 11 inches, a skilled artist and a good cop. His intelligence, sensitivity and humanity create a three dimensional, sympathetic protagonist. The story has many twists and turns which are totally gripping. A great listen!
