    "Wrong narrator"

    It was hard to enjoy this book, mainly because the narrator - supposedly telling the story of a gritty male scouse detective was a female who would have been loads better reading Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer. I think she was an American so she struggled even with the English, it was very "proper". Her accents were atrocious and her voice too light to do gritty male scouser no matter how hard she tried.

    Even if you got into the story, the gratuitous sadism got rather boring and I felt the author was struggling to find yet another way to slay someone with some outrageous gore. It was rather all over the place and I found myself wanting to slap the policeman and give the Gecko a medal.

    Probably won't be following on with any more in this series.

    "Worst Narrator i have ever heard!"
    What disappointed you about Criminally Insane?

    Great books seriously let down by a very poor, almost robotic narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot


    What didn’t you like about Julia Farhat’s performance?

    Her timing is very strange, her generic 'female' accent for all women in the books, lack of any expression and ferling and the strange empasis on random words.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Conrad Jones is an excellent storyteller but really needs a half way decent narrator or they are unlistenable.
