Stereotypical classist story
This was written in 2005 but fits better in the genre of the 1950's. The authors characterisation of working class (feckless and dishonest) and upper middle class (to be shielded and protected and can do no wrong) are shockingly stereotypical.
I found the main character (Daisy) irritating and not at all convincing. The plot depended on some very insecure suppositions and obscure relationships.
In all I did not have much sympathy for any of the characters and only listened to the end in case there may have been a twist which tried to switch my nonexistant sympathy towards the working class characters.
Peter Wickham did a valiant job, switching his accents skillfully but it didn't save the story for me.
