Not the Usual Standard

I am an avid fan of LJ Ross and have enjoyed all the DCI Ryan books in the series - until this one. Jonathan Keeble, as usual, is perfect as the narrator but even he cannot lift the book. It is very short and just as you think the story is going to build it fizzles out. Hopefully it's just a blip and any further books in the series are back on track

Sloppy Narration

I have read the previous book in this series and enjoyed it immensely. This book was my first try at audio books and i was disappointed at the sloppiness of the narrator who repeatedly swapped between talking about Slade Green (correct) and Slades Green (wrong). Picky i know but spoilt the story a bit. Wont listen to the next in the series, if there is one, I'll read it instead. Very good story overall.
