Not sure how I managed to persevere until the end with this narrator but I did. I enjoyed the book overall but it would have been so much better with voice that had feeling and soul.

A good story that kept me interested BUT the French detective inspector was turned in to inspector clouseau by the narrator or a character from allo allo the tv series. Found myself laughing when it was supposed to be a serious storyline .

When a nine-year-old boy is left to die inside a burning car on a sink estate in Peckham, DCI David Rosen is drafted in to investigate. The young boy has been severely burned, and is now fighting for his life. As Rosen and his team begin to scour the crime scene for forensic evidence, they discover something chilling; a graffiti image of a sinister eye, drawn in exquisite detail above the site of the wreckage - and behind it, a series of mysterious markings, etched into the wall. Could the markings represent a secret code left by the killer - a code that will hold the key to the investigation?

I quite enjoyed this book however I wasn't bowled over by the Narrator.
Most of the voices he attempted were really over the top, in so much as the inflection was too exaggerated . The main character seemed to almost shout every sentence, children were presented as if they were all 6 yrs old, regardless of their true age. And some of the voices of the fringe characters were just not believable . Unfortunately this spoiled a good book for me.
