I find this series quite strange for Nicci French whose books I usually love. Such unlikeable characters, on the whole, probably made a lot worse by Beth Chalmers reading. She makes them all sound so angry and unpleasant. I wonder if the books would seem less annoying if I read them myself or if there were a different narrator. But I keep reading them and will read the next one if or when it appears.
I can't bear Beth Chalmers' performance. I hope to never have to listen to her again. Such ugly voices. Really spoils the books.
Even though I dislike the characters and particularly dislike the narration I would still buy any more books inthis series.
Fascinating story, terrific characters. One of my favourite writers on excellent form. Wonderful reader too. Did all the dialogue brilliantly, which made the book even more exciting to listen to.
