another pleasurable listen

Its just a shame that Audible have not got more of the Joe Fraraday series to download. If you like your modern dective thrillers to have a gritty realism, a supurb cast of colourful characters and a good story line to keep you hooked then look no futher a really enjoyable listen. If you like Rebus, Morse, Frost then you will be pleased with another addition to the modern detective. The narrator Tim Pepper is perfect for creating the ambience and has a wide range of voices that make the whole experience a treat.

Good story - shaky reading

Would you consider the audio edition of One Under to be better than the print version?

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.

What didn’t you like about Tim Pepper’s performance?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.
