John Nicholl is one of the very few authors that I both read and listen to, not in whispersync, but at entirely different times. His work is so well constructed, so carefully thought out that it warrants two bites of the cherry. Jake Urry's narration style is such that if he read out the phone book you'd be both fascinated and terrified. The 'mash-up' of Mr Nicholl's words and Mr Urry's narration results in complete perfection. Audio books don't come better than this. If A Mind to Kill was a lager, I'd go as far as to say it would probably be the best lager in the world. The sub text of A Mind to Kill is totally mind blowing; we have law but do we have justice? Would anyone say that Rebecca was totally in her right mind when she committed the murders? Does it not seem, by her behaviour and her speech, that she is deeply disturbed as a result of Sheridan's abuse? The book is a very telling indictment of the way in which children, who are brave enough to name their abusers, get treated by the courts and defence barristers. Mr Nicholl cleverly stops the book from being too bleak with the addition of DI Gareth Gravel, or Grav, as he prefers to be known. Grav's misogyny and total disregard for authority provide some welcome humour, making the balance of tone absolutely perfect. Anyone who cares what happens to the victims of child abuse should read this book. I feel proud and privileged to recommend this outstanding audio book to everyone.

A pleasurable experience

I cannot find fault with this. As dark, bloody and satisfying as every other book. It just ticks every box for me. The torture scenes are gruesome. I couldnt help but laugh at her endless dilema of what to do with the bodies. I was SO thrilled with this book that I dont know what on earth to listen to next. Not for the faint hearted. But what a fabulous heroine. Also, does Jake Urry do personal narrations? He could narrate my shopping list and Id be spellbound. What a great, dark combo of voice and story. Thank you both.
