The performance by all who took part was committed and and drew the listener in to a book that otherwise would have been a complicated and at times confusing and frustrating read.

Not to the usual Mark Billingham standards! I was becoming deeply involved with the story line the protagonist the role of the perilous lead female hanging on in there.
Then NOTHING !!!
I get the dichotomy of the evil characters, and there interactions and I get the "there but for the grace of God " lottery style I feel he is reached for ??? h.mm
I cant help feeling let down !

i found this a very long winded book, with drawn out unnecessary situations that seemed to spring not out of the running narative.Although the protagonist a constant throughout most of the book,was the only positive kept me interested

this was a good easy listen that could be dipped in and out of and enjoyed at any time. The team of narators were perfect for the roles they played. I hope this isn't the only book in this series

wasn't sure this was the book for me being slightly disappointed with a previous book similar genre, but open mind
It was as busy and did get quite cluttered and you do seriously have to concentrate on the plot lines, twists multiplicity of depth of main characters.
It was really good listen

Although the narrator was brilliant I think there is a part in the second section of the book where things are moving at a pace where the action prose out paces the atmospheric description and so things seem a little puddled
