If you could sum up Desecration in three words, what would they be?

English supernatural thriller.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Desecration?

When Jamie's supernatural partner relates the story of his father's cruelty. The telling is vivid and nuanced and sets up a very interesting character.

Have you listened to any of Rosalind Ashford’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not but I did find her voice to be very pleasureful. Rosalind's voice is ethereal. Her reading of the material is great and it seems like she conveyed the feelings the author was going for.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but I downed the books in two sittings. It picks up at chapter eight mightily and goes pretty fast from there on.

Any additional comments?

I am not Sarah. I am her husband Steve who signed into the wrong account when downloading and had to use her account for the review.
