Good story - shaky reading
I would tend not to buy a print or kindle version of this title . It's the kind of book I enjoy listening to on my long commute.
He has a nice voice and is good at dialogue ( he is an actor after all) but his general reading of descriptive passages is stilted with odd pauses in the middle of phrases ( I assume he is stopping at the end of a line and it's a bit obvious) . He also mispronounces a lot of words - simple things like " hose" and "grate". Might have been nice if the producer had let him repeat some paragraphs and edited out the worst mistakes.
This was a good murder mystery which I enjoyed enough to download the next audio book in the series - although I am hoping that Tim Pepper has had a bit more reading practice. It was oddly dated with some rather tacky references to FHM magazine and a girlie calendar in the mortuary which are generally unacceptable today.
