I didn't understand the story and found it confusing, the narrator didn't help much. I always rely on the rating when choosing my books but I guess this isn't the best way to ensure a good listen.

Excellent again....

Don't be put off by the different narrator (from the first in this series on audible) as you soon get used to the different voice and obviously, the characters and their quirks remain the same.
This story is, at times, a little hard to keep up with, but was thoroughly enjoyed nonetheless and I especially loved the continuation from 'The Detective's daughter' and how Terry's name was kept alive. Stella and Jack almost feel like real people now....
I think I will miss this audible book as it has been my companion Over the last 10 days! Looking forward to the next now and seeing how things progress. Would recommend to anyone who likes a crime/detective novel with a good twist !
