Wouldn't want DI Grayson investigating anything!

This could have been an interesting read except for the "hero" breaking just about every investigatory procedure category in his quest to be proven right about a pedo. I guess he drew the line at planting "evidence" but I was waiting for that. His sidekick was a little better. At least she responded to the actual evidence not the "feeling in his heart." The other characters were interesting and their psychological motivations were far more consistent and believable. As I said, it could have been really interesting if handled differently.

Pronunciation

An enjoyable story with many interesting threds. Reader voice was relaxing. Just found the poor prounciation irritating. Catriona is Kat reen a not Cat ri owna and Wisbech is Wiz beach not Wiz beck. I would have thought UK place names and personal names could be checked easily before recording.
