complex storyline w interwoven characters

A fine Lovesey mystery ... I have read most Lovesey novels and have enjoyed the Hen Malin character. This, the second featuring Hen, spends good time developing the characters and is well done, especially her fellow police. Simon Prebble is a fantastic, favorite reader who voices most Lovesey novels, but I enjoyed Susan Lyons performance here very much. And her voicing of Hen gives a differentiation from other Lovesey characters (Peter Diamond) who I hear as Prebbles voice. Lyons oerformance excellent, easy, clear, lively, interesting.

Good story; flaws in the recording

I recently discovered Peter Lovesey and am enjoying his books very much. This was a good second chapter in the Hen Mallin series. The narrator did a good job, but the recording editor, not so much. There are overly long pauses in some places, but more annoyingly, none at all in some places where there needed to be a transition. Still worth a listen if you enjoyed The Circle.

Another Enjoyable Peter Lovesey Mystery

This was the first Hen Mallin mystery although I've read several Peter Lovesey books. Enjoyed it. Ms Lyons did a great job reading it.
