Creepy as heck. Reminded me of classic horror movies set in creepy country settings where, for sure, there would be 'something nasty in the woodshed'. However, twists and turns abound and lead to a satisfying ending, but hungry for more. Great prequel to the Detective Lacey Flint series. The Narrator is great! Having lived in England most of my life, I'm impressed with her ability to narrate all the different accents and flip from one to the other with ease.
I really enjoyed this story, but the reader really got on my nerves. There are a few male characters in this story who play important parts, and the lovely, bright female voice makes them sound silly, especially since the reader really tries to make her voice sound dim. It would have been easier to ignore if she'd just used her normal voice. Better yet, the story should have been read by a male, as female characters generally suffer less by being read by a male than the other way around.
But reading aside, great story, Bolton at her best.
