A disappointment all the way.

Would you try another book written by Deborah Crombie or narrated by Jenny Sterlin?

Absolutely no to both questions.

What was most disappointing about Deborah Crombie’s story?

Hard to say. I only kept on for an hour.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jenny Sterlin?

Tony Britton or Michael Jayston or Harriet Walter or John Keeble ...

What character would you cut from Necessary as Blood?

Hard to tell. They were all unreal.

Any additional comments?

She should not have written it,
