Chilling - inside and out.

I loved it ... the narration was perfect for the style of writing. The characters were well developed and interesting and the twists in the tail were enoiugh to keep you involved until the last line. The grey cold seemed so real - I could feel the cold, damp in my room even though it was a fine warm day when I was listening!! The character development was detailed enough to allow me to form a clear picture of each and every one. The narration enabled me to become involved in the search and to maintain my interest up to the end. I thoroughly recommend.

Good characters, nice twist, but protracted ending

I chose this book from a published top 50 crime thrillers list. Overall it was an enjoyable listen, with only occasional implausible moments. You know you're being misled by the author as to who is the suspect, but even as you know that it's a misdirection you cannot readily pinpoint another suspect, and you begin to wonder if it really is going to be so cut and dry. I did not see the twist coming at all, very neat.
Sadly it did seem to change in terms of credibility towards the end, which was a shame. You went from being involved in the story to stepping back and thinking "That would never happen" and the magic is lost. Still worth a listen, with excellent narration.
