    Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn't: a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents, who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here....

    Story

    Too descriptive which slowed the story up somewhat. The narrator had an annoying whine when some female characters were concerned. Very disappointed and has put me off these Banks' titles. I have bought others that have been better. But narrated by a different person. I'll try again once more. The storylines are good..........

    There's more than blood and bone beneath the skin... The victim, a nondescript "numbers cruncher," died horribly just yards away from his terrified wife and daughter, murdered by men who clearly enjoyed their work.

    Story

    James Langton has done a reasonable job. His interpretation of the female characters were a tad annoying in that they sounded similar and somewhat insipid. Some of the description of the scene were overdone to the point of getting tedious. The over use of swearing was boring and there was no need. So when used at certain critical points in book the impact was lost. A good yarn that keeps the listener interested.........But not on the edge of their seat.

    The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 12 stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective. They were originally published in the Strand magazine from July 1891 to June 1892.

    Matthew R. Fomby says: "Terrible narration"
    "Certainly no Adventure"
    Overall

    What an insult to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle..........The worst narration I have ever encountered. The title should be removed and monies returned.
