Great book

loved it, good pace and accurate accents by the narrator. Kept you wondering about the suspect's guilt or not until the end.

Don't want to spoil it

I felt terribly let down and deflated by the ending. It was like an England football team penalty shootout.
I'm sure most people will like it but it annoyed me.

Very disappointing

I need to identify with at least one character and I didn’t have any feelings about anyone. I usually enjoy her books but I felt this one was a waste of time.

Depressing

I listen to a lot of crime fiction but did not enjoy this at all. There is no respite from a horrific and depressing story from start to finish. Every single thing that happens to every single character, even minor ones, is sad. I feel drained by it. The narrator was excellent however.

Bit boring

For me this didn’t have enough twists and it all felt a bit flat. Also there were so many different characters it was hard to keep track of them all!
