Publisher's Summary

Two dead men...

In fashionable Chelsea, a Halloween bash goes terribly wrong. Emmeline Wardle, daughter of the frozen foods baron, throws a party that results in the demise of two university schoolmates. Handsome golden boy Trevor Parsons is dead. So is pasty computer nerd Clive French. Both died on the Wardle Estate within minutes of each other, and both died the same way - an axe to the skull.

Two prime suspects...

This time around, Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield and her partner, Detective Sergeant Deepal "Paul" Bhar, have their work cut out. Bhar must contend with Emmeline Wardle, a spoiled blonde with a penchant for the finer things, including a certain illegal white powder. Kate must decide if Kyla Sloane, model-pretty and delicate, is being truthful about the events of that fateful night. And if Kyla's connection to a former lover of Bhar's means nothing - or everything.

    "Good plot but creepy voices"

    Found it difficult to listen to-really disliked the narrator's voice for DS Bhar. It sounded like Marilyn Monroe on downers. Using my Kindle to accompany the narration made it
    possible to finish the book. accompany

    "All of Great Britain have new asian accents!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Very good mystery and well-developed characters. I've read the first three books of the series and hope there will be many more. That said, the narrator is awful!

    If I could have give Mr. Wallen zero stars Iwould have but it is technically impossible.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Author kept me guessing "who done it". Also there are issues between .various characters that make you wonder "what's next?".


    What didn’t you like about Jack Wallen’s performance?

    Mr. Wallen speaks with an Indian/Pakistani (?) accent. There are two characters who naturally speak with the same Indian/Pakistani accent. Then there are all the other characters who would usually speak with British or American accents but Mr. Wallen gives them his own accent. Not only is this distracting but it is often hard to recognize which character is speaking,


    What character would you cut from Blue Murder?

    None.

    "Awful, awful narrator"

    I stopped listening after less than 20 minutes. The narrator is terrible. He is an American who has no idea what a British accent sounds like. His phrasing and pacing are bad. There is no way I could have listened any more.

    I like this author. I read the first in the series and will return to the book for the second. I advise you to read. I am giving the story four stars because, even though I didn't listen to most of it, I don't want to penalize the author for the terrible narrator.

    "Difficult to distinguish the characters"

    If it was narrated by a different narrator, I would have enjoyed it more. It is a light read or listening but interesting enough to keep going. The trouble I had was distinguishing who was talking. I finally was able to distinguish the main three characters but the others, very difficult to figure out whether it is female or male and often times he conveyed no emotions.

    "Great characters and engrossing mystery"
    What did you love best about Blue Murder?

    This second book in the series continues to expand on the lives of the already interesting trio of Scotland yard detectives. The plot kept me guessing until the end and the romance was both civilized and satisfying. I really didn't expect to like this series, but now I am hooked. Reading the third book now.

    "Aweful narrator!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend reading the book, but not listening to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blue Murder?

    The conversations between Bahr and his mother were quite entertaining, but so much was lost with the very bad narration.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Wallen’s performances?

    No


    Could you see Blue Murder being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I will not listen to the third book in the series if Wallen is narrating.
