This is a decent mystery novel. It is definitely Not a page turner. I had to struggle to get all the way through it, as I kept getting bored with all the background info. I am a basic WASP and often had difficulty understanding the narrator with her strong British accent. In all fairness, she did a good job with the multiple voices. This should be in one of Audible's discounted lists. I would have rather have paid $5.00 or $9.00 and saved a credit for a higher priced and better book.
