Superb! Up there with the best!

What made the experience of listening to From the Cradle the most enjoyable?

I am frankly amazed at how good this is. I have read books by Mark Edwards before, and they were good, but this is in another league. Perhaps this is the result of Louise Voss' contribution, I don't know. What made this so good was how richly drawn each character was, allowing the listener/reader to learn interesting and important things about many of them long into the book. As a consequence, there were many surprises and 'ah ha' moments right through to the end. These moments, and the little twists, never felt contrived. There was much suspense, but it was written with a light touch. The DCI Patrick Lennon, is worth a particular mention. I'm really disappointed that this is a stand alone novel. I would love a series with this character. He was so human, flawed, but in a subtle way and very likeable.
