An enjoyable 3 hours entertainment

I enjoy Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks novels, but get a bit irritated by all the detailed descriptions of his tastes in music, and his excessive drinking and smoking, so abridged versions are just the ticket as a lot of that stuff is deleted. I realized that I'd actually read the book of this recording, but fortunately couldn't remember "who dunnit", but felt that the abridger had captured all the necessary details of the story to give the listener a first class story in just over 3 hours that can be enjoyed in one session.
Neil Pearson does a great job bringing the characters to life.
