“Superb…A strong supporting cast…This immensely satisfying mystery has it all—a heroic protagonist, a challenging puzzle, and an exotic setting.” (Publishers Weekly)
The flat, almost expressionless narration of this book caused me to take months to finish listening to it. I liked the story and the characters but the narration put me to sleep and I just wanted to fast forward somehow or get some humanity in it somehow. I would read or listen to another of Colin Cotterill Dr. Siri books maybe for the story, but I would be reluctant to pay for a download of another without sampling the narration first.
There were many wonderful turns of phrase and the story kept me going - otherwise I would have quit listening.
