Publisher's Summary

The bleak expanse of Vangmoor was a dark, forbidding place. One victim had been found there, blonde, her face disfigured, her head shorn close to the scalp - killed without motive or mercy. Then a second woman went missing on the moor, and a sense of utter dread gripped the fifty local men who searched for her. Someone watched them in that treacherous place. Was he a killer? Or was he merely angry that a killer had usurped him? For he, and only he, was the Master of the Moor.

Master of The Moor

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

Although not one of Rendell's best novels, it's still a good listen.

What other book might you compare Master of the Moor to, and why?

Other psychological thrillers by authors such as Minette Walters.

Did Michael Bryant do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Sometimes his performance was a little flat and without much cadence. He's not the best actor I've heard to be honest.

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

Not really, it's a bit too harrowing for that.

Any additional comments?

The actual identity of the murderer was rather easy to work out. I liked the twist though.
