What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Get rid of the narrator and bring back Simon Prebble! I'm returning this book--I can't judge the story because I couldn't get past the first hour with this narrator.

Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Lovesey again?

Yes, I have loved the Peter Diamond series as read by Simon Prebble.

Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Crossley’s performances?

No!
