I love the Wexford series, but this narrator was awful. Every woman had a simpering voice, Wexford sounded like an overbred public school boy, and the pace was deadly. For this book, I recommend reading the real thing.
It is hard to separate the awful narration from the otherwise acceptable plot. At times, I thought my MP3 player had run out of battery, then realized it was just another interminable pause in the reading, as if the narrator had run out of breath. I can't imagine how this prissy-voiced reader was selected to read an American action thriller. It is so distracting that I almost gave up on the book, but was on a long drive without other options.
