Letdown!

What would have made Hetty Wainthropp Investigates better?

Had it not been produced in the first place.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Patricia Routlege is a fantastic narrator, however, the story lines and plot lines are the most unrealistic I have ever read or listened to. It would seem that there was not enough thought put into the writing and production of this audio collection.

What character would you cut from Hetty Wainthropp Investigates?

The vast majority of the characters were flat and lifeless apart from Hetty Wainthropp herself. Never in reality would you come in to contact with people like those characters in the book, thank goodness.

Any additional comments?

Having been employed as a criminal and civil investigator in over ten years I had never been instructed to undertake a case anywhere similar to the ones Hetty Wainthropp had been employed to do. Most PI's would cringe at the thought that people would think that's how they all work... I think I'll get a refund on this one!
