While I have loved every book narrated by Graeme Malcolm, this one could have used some editing. Long pauses and swallowing sounds were very distracting. Otherwise, this is another fun adventure of Hamish Macbeth.
Edited out the swallowing sounds.
Listening to this makes me wonder about McDermid. This is the most graphic sexual violence I've ever heard and I couldn't finish the book.
Somewhere in the middle. I really enjoyed hearing her tell about her writing process and the characters she created. I was also interested in her reminiscences about her early career where she was paid 60 pounds per story and calculated her taxes and what it left to spend. She planned household projects around how many stories she would have to write to pay for them.
When she described her writer's block and how she got through it with the help of her husband.
Hearing the voice of this marvelous woman talk about her life.
The story held my interest at first though I thought it was derivative of Rex Stout (Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin rolled into one character), but it really turned stupid at the end. A car chase came from out of nowhere and completely sideswiped the story line.
Leave out the gratuitous car chase. Also, I vaguely remember a detective story with the same ending.
Okay, okay, alright.
