The Religious Body | [Catherine Aird]

The Religious Body

Who would want to kill a nun? That was the problem facing Inspector C.D. Sloan of the Berebury CID when the body of Sister Anne was found at the foot of the cellar steps at the Convent of St Anselm. Sloan soon found that interviewing half a hundred black-habited sisters as potential suspects for murder was no easy task - especially when he realised that, to him, one nun looked very much like the next, and every sister had an assumed name - and a past...

    Story
    "Who could of done it?"

    As mysteries and murders go, this was run of the mill, but an interesting listen, nevertheless. It offered an interesting inside view of convent life and of course, a view of crime solving as told by the unmatchable Robin Bailey. The narration is supreme.

    Story
    "Absorbing story intelligently read."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have read several Catherine Aird books but this is the first Audiobook. Having formed my own ideas of C.D.Sloan and Crosby, I was very pleased to hear them rendered not too far from my ideas. I would certainly recommend this to friends who enjoy cosy whodunit/detective procedurals.


    What other book might you compare The Religious Body to, and why?

    It's not far removed from P D James Death in Holy Orders, although P D James goes further into the individual characters. The main premise that one individual in religious garb looks much like any other is common to both.


    Have you listened to any of Robin Bailey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Haven't so far, but will. I thought he was very good. Loved especially the Irish accents. More to the point, one always knows who the speaking character is even with very subtle changes to the voice, which is quite an achievement.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Well, no. But it kept me interested to the end, even while cooking the supper with head-phones on!


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy all Catherine Aird books. I liked Robin Bailey as the narrator. I have seen comments from some American reviewers who have taken against Robin Bailey as being 'too English' for God's sake!
