this book is far too similar to the Anne Perry series of Monk & Latterly books. As an audio book,I was driven almost to distraction by the female narrator, Maggie Mash, an appropriate name as she made a right mash of reading it. Aside from that, the book was far too slow, the characters very slight, and the book much too long. I have enjoyed some of the Mitchell and Markby books, but will not be attempting this particular addition to Ms.Granger's oeuvre. Basically, don't bother with it. It ain't worth the effort. Why are so many poor books recorded, when really excellent books fail to make it to audio? I wish I knew. I have been an enthusiastic library user all my life, but now, going into a library is a depressing experience. The comparitive choice in audio compared to the paper books is minimal. Even buying from audible or similar, one is still very restricted in choice especially if one wishes to read serious non-fiction.
