Publisher's Summary

DI Sally Parker has a serial killer on her patch. One thing that sets this killer apart from the others she's hunted before: his willingness to leave DNA at each of the crime scenes. It's up to Sally and her partner, DS Jack Blackman, to find out why before the body count rises to double figures.

While Sally is engrossed in the investigation, her ex-husband, Darryl, pays a surprise visit to her new home. His actions not only threaten Sally's newfound confidence, but they also force the DCI to give Sally an ultimatum concerning the case. Can Sally overcome all the obstacles fate has placed in her path and arrest the brazen killer?

    "Painful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The worst narrated audio book I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. Made the story sound as if it had been written by a 5 year old. I was constantly exclaiming at how dreadful it was.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. A. Comley again?

    No.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Charlotte Anne Dore?

    Anyone who can read fluently!

    "Tolerably good plot - ruinous narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not to an American or anyone familiar with UK dialects. The narrator is low, painlessly "correct" and reads as though she was on a stage. It made a plausible plot dire on the ears.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked D.I. Sally Parker because I know it can be tough for a female officer in a police force. Then men don't get much of a run as characters but there is sufficient to add flesh to skeletons.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Charlotte Anne Dore’s performances?

    NO


    Was Wrong Place worth the listening time?

    Yes and no.


    Any additional comments?

    I was strongly tempted to return this one and after 3 starts I managed to get into the plot. As I am a supporter of police procedurals, the advertising wasn't misleading but books written by women should not always be read by the sisterhood. I'm sorry that Charlotte Ann Dore should try again in a few years when her voice loses the schoolgirl pitch. Alternatively she could practice after whisky.

    "Disappointing and dreadfully narrated."

    The story was nothing special but the narration was bizarre. She sounded like a 9 year old taking elocution lessons and sounding out every syllable as the syntax was so abnormal. Is the narrator American doing a poor interpretation of an English accent? Dick Van Dyke did better in Mary Poppins !

    "Good story"

    I couldn't listen to the narrator any longer so I switched to reading it instead.
    To me it sounded very amateur and clipped.
    The story was good but a bit rushed in parts and the "polite" wording was also a bit unnatural.
    I enjoyed reading the book but I may well have given up if I had carried on listening to it.

    "Disappointing"
    What would have made Wrong Place better?

    Started listening to this book and cannot continue due to the poor performance by the narrator. Over pronouncing words, no feeling in any of the story so far. It is supposed to be a crime book which need to have some rawness about it but because of the narrator you cannot tell.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. A. Comley again?

    Yes as long as its not this narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    Re record this book with a different narrator. If I was to say Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins I am sure most people will understand where I am coming from.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I dont know. I've listened to Comley before and utterly disappointed in this narrator being so crap I cannot continue. A waste of a credit


    Any additional comments?

    Sack the narrator

    "Good story but..."

    .... the narration was "wooden," it lacked fluidity. The story itself was good with good plot.

    "good book terrible narration"

    I was unable to finish listening to this book, although an excellent story. I found the narration terrible, it was robotic and where accents were attempted they were abbismal. I will continue to read it without narration. I also returned the narration for the next book in the series.

    "Narration spoiled the story"

    Sadly, the narrator's perception that every consonant needs articulating results in an unnatural outcome. Pauses at odd moments due to this made me irritable, spoiling the story. I can't say I enjoyed it because I was so focused on the delivery. A pity.

    "SO BAD"

    I thought every detective book with British D.I.s would be good. Oh, so wromg! This is so poorly written and read it could be a parody but, alas, it's not.

    "where do I start?
    "

    the oversimplified story line and characters? crime scene 101 dialogue? under developed principal? or the clipped, excruciatingly slow and wooden narrator? don't. dont bother. unless you're new to reading.

    "Good story but narrator was not great"

    Story was very good but the narrator sounded like a robot. I could've just had the free narration on the kindle instead of spent the money on the narration. I hate to write a bad review and the voice was nice but too mechanical.
