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.

Really good performance

The narrater was excellent in my opinion and made every character come alive. He has made it difficult to listen to anyone else.

Engaging audible

Thoroughly enjoyed this as it works well as an audible book. It’s very engaging plus I also really like the narrator which is always important. I particularly liked him doing the female voices.

Close to the best

Good story made great by the narration. Couldn’t better the performance, I’m buying the next in the series and I hope he keeps up the record of not one irritatingly bad accent whatsoever!

Brilliant Listen

I really enjoyed this and it was a bit different from the other audiobooks from La Plante. The story was great and fantastically well read by Mace. I’ll be looking forward to the next one in this particular series.

It was ok

Not one of the best, the ending was very disappointing. Hope the next one is better.

Didn't quite meet expectations, still recommended

I guess the bar was high, following not just Jane Tennison but also the TV series, with Kate Buffery outstanding as Pat North.
I almost lost interest halfway as the the plot of the murdered child seemed to founder in familar cliches of stepfather etc.
But I persisted and glad I did as it did transcend mere cliche.
When I read Lynda la Plante I must admit to a positive bias based on Tara Moss's interviews, which really do highlight Lynda's multi-media skills! Hence the expectations! Books nowadays very much have an increasingly multi-media context.

Great book.

Enjoyed this book an easy listen, although was unsure at the start because, I always enjoyed the TV series. Found the book as good as the TV series. Storyline was good and enjoyed the narration.
