I picked this up on a recommendation of a family member, and while I lied to them about my feelings on it, I won't lie to you. The narrator does a good job of giving voice to this easy detective novel following a murder of employees of a research facility, but it telegraphs its solution pretty early on if you're used to this genre, and the only thing left was the details of the how, as why and who are given up pretty early on. Still though, the how was interesting enough to keep me engaged, and this wouldn't be a terrible companion on a long drive, but there may be others more worthy.
The story got me hooked pretty early on, and the switching between the two voices of both the actual performers as well as each chapter's character view point was great. The switching of view points between the two characters lent well to the mystery as you try to make up your mind who the unreliable narrator is, and every twist in the path brings new thrills. Totally worth a listen!
This was a fun little thing I could turn to again and again over the year that I've had it. Each chapter functions more as a short story than a continuing narrative, so it was awesome to have this along in my collection every time I finished another story just shy of reaching my destination while driving.
The performance of Nicola Barber was great, with distinctive voices for the characters, she lent a pleasant tone to the great short shots that I took in.
