Great story - excellent voiced by Craig Beck
I love Craig Beck’s voice and how he differs his intonation, his speed and language while speaking for the different protagonists. His voicing of the murderer is chilling and gives me the creeps like when yet another victim is killed and he says “that shut her up” (time:00:01:16; chapter 26, 00:02:54 -55). His performance of detective Hamilton is so good, that when you hear the voice, you see an image of the detective. In all, Craig Beck’s performance, giving each of the different characters a fitting and recognisable voice, adds to the pleasure of listening to this audiobook. Like I read the book in once session, I almost did the same with the audiobook. It’s my first ever audiobook to listen to as well as to review and the experience is great. The narration follows the book excellently and is perfectly interchangeable with the book.

Debut novel - good story well tied up
Given that this book was part of a challenge on TBC this has already been recommended by a few people on the site and yes I would recommend it to a friend.
In the Shadows has no real direct comparison, however, it has some common denominators with a lot of the genre and is enjoyable.
The narration was not particularly notable, however there was nothing particularly objectionable, either. If he were to narrate another book it wouldn't put me off reading it.
This book and its style is well suited to TV and film as it is shorter than average and jumps quickly between action scenes and so would make good tv.
As this is the first book by this author I've been told by a friend that her next book is also worth reading.
