If you like the writing style of Tony Parsons' DC Wolfe series starting with, The Murder Bag, or John Verdon's Dave Gurney's novels starting with, Think of a Number, then this will probably be a book you enjoy. However, if you like a story without the gruesome descriptions painted in vivid detail then skip this read. The narration by Worsley is top notch. His tone, pitch, emotion and voice ranges makes the story even better. The quality of the recording is professional.
The character development is written well and sets up the series. The story is fairly complex and left me wondering & trying to guess whats happenes next. At times, I guessed correctly but still enjoyed how the author led me there. The character interaction and dialog has a wide range of emotions.
Without spoilers, skip this if you're looking for an action-packed read, or a police procedural without the vivid descriptions of events and characters you're made to hate and detest.
I rated the story four stars because the gore is more than necessary, but the quality of the narration is a solid five star. I will definitely be listening to the next MacBride book and will listen to anything by Worsley.

Couldn't finish. The gory details in the autopsy room were just too much and IMO gratuitous. Too bad because I was interested in the plot and the characters.
