Publisher's Summary

Anthony Hetheridge, ninth Baron of Wellegrave and Chief Superintendent for New Scotland Yard, has never married, has no children, no pets, no hobbies, and not even an interesting vice - and will turn sixty in three weeks. With the exception of his chosen career, too sordid for his blue-blooded family to condone, his life has been safe and predictable. But then he meets Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield - beautiful, willful, and nearly half his age.

When Hetheridge saves the outspoken, impetuous young detective from getting the sack, siding with her against Scotland Yard's powerful male hierarchy, his cold, elegantly balanced world spins out of control.

Summoned to London's fashionable Belgravia to investigate the brutal murder of a financier, Hetheridge must catch the killer while coping with his growing attraction to Kate, the reappearance of an old flame, and a secret that emerges from his past.

    "Terrible narrator!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story is good, but the narration ruined it.


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

    Jack Wallen assumed voices that demeaned the intelligence of the characters, in particular Kate and Bahr. Kate is an intelligent woman, and he made her sound stupid and unprofessional.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy reading the series and would have enjoyed a decent narration. It is unbelievable that the author (if she had any say) approved this narrator. I would only buy another Audible in this series if the narrator is changed.

    "Good Story, But the Reader was Awful"
    What did you love best about Ice Blue?

    It was a good mystery with a back story. Bit too much back story, but barely so.


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

    NEVER!

    Story
    "Horrid narrator!"
    What would have made Ice Blue better?

    A different reader! He has an awful voice difficult to listen to. He also has a very small store of voices he can use that the story is almost ruined. His short, choppy style is distracting and annoying. I can't believe the publisher hired him after thr first book.


    Would you recommend Ice Blue to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, almost unlistenable


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every way possible. I'm shocked any producer could have found this performance acceptable.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is almost lost in my annoyance with the reader.

    "Terrific story and engaging characters"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Really engaging characters. I'm more of a traditional cozy fan and generally don't like more modern day mysteries with modern day sensibilities on sex and profanity. HOWEVER, I do like interesting characters and after the first book I found myself eager to read more. This is a well written and engaging book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I definitely wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. I've read the second book and am downloading the third as I write this.

    "Terrible narrator"
    What disappointed you about Ice Blue?

    The narrator can't do women's voices and shouldn't try. He can barely do the voices for different men, but for any women here, he falls right down.


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

    No, never, ever.


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

    It introduced me to a writer who is new to me. I will look for more by her, but definitely not another book narrated by this guy.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm amazed that this performance was considered acceptable.
