    Have re-discovered "quality time." Evenings listening to good books have replaced mindless tv watching. What a difference!

    "Good first book in this series"

    This is the first book in a series by Ann Granger, who has also written a couple of others (for example the Mitchell and Markby books, which are a great read). The unusual premise of this book is that Fran Varaday is an out of work, homeless young woman who is drawn into investigating the murder of a roommate in a "squat" (that is, an old boarded up house where several people have moved in for bare survival).

    Fran, despite the doubts of her friend Ganesh, is asked to visit the country home where the roommate had run away from, to see if she might be able to detect clues to the roommate's mysterious disappearance from there in the first place, and ultimately her murder.

    Not everyone is happy with her doing this, which is what provides the bulk of the story, as she puts herself into dangerous situations to get the information she needs to solve the case. This includes the police, who feel she is contaminating their investigation by her meddling.

    It's a good story. I like the Mitchell/Markby series a bit better, but this is very enjoyable, with a not-too-difficult-to-solve murder that readers may figure out on their own (or perhaps not). I do recommend this book, and all of what Ann Granger writes. I felt the narration was good, but not exceptional. Still, good series, worth listening to.
