    In this enthralling new audiobook, Rendell, "the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world" (Time), takes Inspector Wexford back to his days as a young policeman, and to the man he has long suspected of murder - serial murder.Outside the house where Wexford investigated his first murder case - a woman found strangled in her bedroom - he noticed a short, muscular man wearing a scarf and walking a dog. He gave Wexford an unnerving stare....

    "Wrong narrator"
    Overall

    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.

    No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations. But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful.

    Pamela says: "Good story; terrible narration."
    "Poor Narration"
    Overall

    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.
