The Glass Room: A Vera Stanhope Mystery, Book 5 | [Ann Cleeves]

The Glass Room: A Vera Stanhope Mystery, Book 5

When one of DI Vera Stanhope's hippy neighbours goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. It's an easy job to track the young woman down to a country retreat where aspiring authors gather to work through their novels. It gets complicated when a body is discovered and Vera's neighbour is found with a knife in her hand. Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over to someone else, but the investigation is too tempting.

Publisher's Summary

DI Vera Stanhope is not one to make friends easily, but she has more tolerance for her hippy neighbours than most. When one of them goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. It's an easy job to track the young woman down to a country retreat where aspiring authors gather to work through their novels. It gets complicated when a body is discovered and Vera's neighbour is found with a knife in her hand.

Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over to someone else, but the investigation is too tempting. Then another body is found, and Vera suspects that someone is playing games with her.

    "Great listen"

    I love the series Vera so I bought this book and I wasn't disappointed. You really get in to the characters and places. I love the narrator Charlie Hardwicks voice and it's great that she is a geordie as after watching Vera it wouldn't sound right in any other accent.

    "Dull potboiler; boring reader"

    It's hard to tell if this is an average story made worse by a boring reader or actually really poor in its own right. Reading this myself might be ok, but the poor narrator of this audiobook makes it dull, a shame, since the ingredients are so hopeful.
    The story is barely believable, and the characters unsympathetic, even Vera is not drawn too well here. This felt like a book written to a deadline by an author out of ideas.

    The reader may be from the north east, but she only has about 3 different voices, which makes some of the scenes impossible to follow, where a room full of people discuss the case. Her reading voice is also is a bit of a drone, which was just boring in the end.
    Basically I was disappointed. I don't really understand all the five star reviews, it isn't exciting, well read or believable IMHO. I guess I expect a bit more for a fifer!
