Good but not her best...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's worth a listen. But I was disappointed that it dealt with such a serious subject like domestic violence in such a predictable, slightly old-fashioned way. The victims were all women, the aggressors all male. Would have made it more interesting to have had just one case where the genders were reversed...

What about Nigel Anthony’s performance did you like?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

In a similar ilk to other Wexford novels.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed Regs dilemma over his relationship with his two daughters and him coming to terms with finding one much harder to get on with than the other
