I generally like Patricia Cornwall books, but I simply couldn't stand listening to the reading of this book due to the voice artist's choice of readings. For example, she plays one of the major characters as a monotonic, Dan-Akroyd-in-Dragnet kind of a cop, which might be fine if he wasn't also the protaganoist's lover and needed to show some sensitivity on occassion. Other voices are similary stereotypical and don't display any depth of characters. Normally a lover of audiobooks, this is the first time I've had to stop listening because the reading was SO bad.
