Too many notes. There are too many characters and too many twists and too many non-sequiturs, typical of first novels, I've found.
This story is told from the view of a detective constable rather than the DI in charge which is why I will listen to the second in this series.
Actually, no character was adequately--or believably--developed, so I had no favorite character.
I will listen to the next book in this series. I hope the author will have found a better editor in the mean time.
