"Absolutely outrageous, absolutely hysterical." (Daily Telegraph)
M J Trow gives a new slant on Conan Doyle's Lestrade.
Sergeant (later Inspector) Lestrade hunts a killer in Sanger's circus of Victorian times learning that "nothing is at it appears in a circus".
I have read this book before & enjoyed it so downloaded the audio version expecting the same pleasure. I don't know why the author decided to narrate his books but in my opinion it was a big mistake. M J Trow does not narrate his story well which is a great pity.
The interesting story line, notable characters, and amusing dialog made this book enjoyable.
The narrator’s omnipresent, loud breathing was too much of a distraction from the story.
"Good story problem narration"
Thi story has good pace, great characters, lots of plot twists and a good measure of humour to keep the reader reading. But, it is read by the author and this lets it down. It sounds as though he is reading with a mouthful of drink which is very distracting from what is a very worthwhile and entertaining audio book.
I first read this series of books about 15 yrs ago they definitely stand up to a second visit. I wish they had a different reader
Yes with another narrator
