Murder should not be this much fun
Although this book is about murder it has a fun element, not surprising when a Baron who is also a Police Chief Superintendent picks as his team members a working class South London girl and an Asian lad from the East of London. Examining crimes among the privileged this combination is bound to be disconcerting when none of them are respecters of class or wealth.
Jameson tells a good crime story in which you want to know the outcome and Lloyd Davies bring to life Tony, Kate and Paul, as well as the characters you want to boo and hiss at.
There are several subplots needing to be developed as the series goes on but they would spoil in the telling.
I am ready for book number two.

English and Exemplary
Would you consider the audio edition of Ice Blue to be better than the print version?
I did not read the print version but I thoroughly enjoyed the audio with Davies and his accent. He did a great job of differentiating between characters and pacing.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ice Blue?
When Hetheridge shows Kate his fencing room and they spar, it was so smooth that they both were just play fighting. The approach to this scene was really well written.
What about Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance did you like?
Matthew was able to portray each main character with a distinction that fit their role. His accents were spot on and his interpretation was perfect.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This was a fun mystery that had some surprising twists. I really want to know these characters more and bought the next book - looking forward to the character developement.
Any additional comments?
If you like Elizabeth George,you will like this series too! :) Very well done!

I got this audio book for $1.99 and it was worth every penny. A decent plot, the narrator was good, the class distinctions were set and the characters believable. But, and this is a big but, I did not buy the romance, such as it was. This is a set up for a series, introducing the players and backgrounds. As a devotee of Georgette Heyer, I like sparkle, wit and chemistry in my romances. I found little in this book. An older, titled man and a "council flat" feisty Londoner. Nope. Even the author admitted the unlikelihood. I may read or listen to the others in this series because of the plotting, but if you want romance, go elsewhere.
