Not as good as hoped
Wish I could say more about this book that is positive. However, it is the third in a series of books about Martha Gunn, a coroner who also likes to be in on solving whatever mystery is happening. I think the author drags the stories out unnecessarily, and has a tendency to (in first two books) leave things unexplained with no explanation, then in this one--ties them up in an almost offhand manner. While each book has had a good story line--something about them has left me wanting to simply speed them up to get them finished. I sort of would recommend them to someone looking for a decent series that have interesting plots--but the writing is just so tedious and has too many fillers for me to give this book a higher rating. I will say that Patricia Gallimore, as narrator, does a lot to rescue the books. The fact that I listened to all three says that I found them okay--but I just can't get terribly enthusiastic about them.

Left me cold
Dull and predictable, so predictable I wish I'd stopped listening as soon as I worked out the plot, which was so early in the story I would have saved hours of boredom waiting for a twist.
I was under the impression that Priscilla Masters was good but will now avoid her work, life's too short..
The only saving grace this turgid tale had was the excellent voice of Patricia Gallimore (which is unfortunately what drew me to it). She should be applauded for not falling asleep on the job and for adding the only touch of polish to this turd of a story.
