This has to be one of the worst books I have ever read. The "detective" never does any detecting. He simply makes guesses with no evidence. He never asks the most obvious questions. All the answers just fall into his lap without him even trying. And the most laughable part? Literally every woman he meets wants to have sex with him. All he has to do is meet them and they simply can't resist him. Even to the point of one character sacrificing her career because of the love she feels for him after spending a few hours on a plane. My guess is the "author" (no surprise he kept his real identity a secret) is simply projecting his fantasies onto a fictional character.
Do yourself a favor and stear clear of this one.
I, like everyone else, am very disappointed by the change of reader. I was so excited and full of anticipation for this audio book but the reader is so bad that I found it hard to enjoy. Like an earlier reviewer I found it hard to keep track of who was speaking because the characters all sound the same. Part of what made the first three books so great was the wonderful voices given tothe characters by Mr. Dotrice. This reader barely tries to distiguish one character from another. You would think he would have taken a little time to listen to some of the earlier books before recording this one so he could at least pronounce the names the same.
