my wife and i listened to this book on a recent 36 hour drive to the coast and back, we found it boring, repetitive, contrived and very disappointing.
The hero of the story is at a loss, as the story develops as to why he should investigate this murder. What murder? There seems to be a conspiracy of silence, missing persons and misdirection directed towards his inquiries, but stubbonly he does not give up.
There is much detail that gives the story a very authentic, and sometimes horrible, backdrop but it makes story a well-told historical who dunnit. As it is one a series I look forward to other equally gripping and well-narrated.
Lots of people, names to remember etc. But I found it a busy book from the start. No napping during this listen. So all in all it was great and I will definitely be listening to more Challoner escapades in the future.
