One of the worst books I have listened to in quite some time - maybe ever - and one of the worst readers. The narrator is so consistently whiney it is laughable, and the author's vocabulary seems to be limited to "God Damn it Charlie"'" "Why, Charlie, why'" and "We were a family, Charlie." Add to that the fact that the story was weak and totally transparent and the result is a real loser.
There were so many characters and such an involved plot that one needs to be able to "check back" to earlier pages to keep everything straight. Obviously not practical with an audio book.
Reminiscent of Agatha Christie and the other British "village mystery" wirters - with maybe a touch of the "Midsomer Murders" series.
Lovely accent. Overall an excellent narrator.
Still don't have the characters clear enough in my mind to eliminate one!
This book was my introduction to Mr. Innes. I will definitely read more of his books - the operative word here being, "read."
