Getting better at story telling

Would you consider the audio edition of Beneath the Ashes to be better than the print version?

This is my second Jane Isaac's and I liked it. I have not read the printed version but the audible version was worth the money

What about Tim Bruce’s performance did you like?

Yes. I thought Tim's subtle use of inflection for some of the characters was useful

Any additional comments?

Jane has got a better handle on her prime character and it shows. The descriptions are clearer and there's just the right balance between information and imagination

I Needed Kindle to Finish This Book

The police procedural chapters were interesting, and I enjoyed the characters, setting, dialogue, etc. However, after listening to several chapters about the victim's girlfriend, I could no longer listen to the Audible version--at any speed. At first I sympathized with her predicament, but as more unpleasant facts about the victim came to the fore, she began to sound more like a whinging, pathetic pity-poor-me character. I switched to Kindle so I might skim/skip/speed through her chapters. As soon as the police procedural resumed, I switched to Audible. Without Kindle I could not have finished this book. That said, I may try other books in this series
