First off five star narration by Annie Aldington.
Surprisingly this is my first Cole book. It's not very often I can't get through a book it took me ages to get though to the end, personally finding the story line, situations and characterizations boring and too repetitive for my taste after initially being hooked in at the beginning, my interest soon ebbed away as the story unfolded.
It felt more like I was reading a script for TV.
To give Cole her due it does get better towards the end but I still stand by an 'ok' score.I felt there just was not enough depth to the story line despite the superb narration.
Been told to try her earlier stuff so will be giving that a go instead.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Seems Martina has run out of ideas, having read most of her books this one is just the same old story and identical characters doing the same jobs, if you are looking for something different then you will be disappointed.
Would you be willing to try another one of Annie Aldington’s performances?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Anyone who hasn't read real crime books. The plot was never developed, it just droned on with banal language and shallow characters.
What could Martina Cole have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Reconsider the lack of any real plot, rewrite it. Fundamentally a serial soap opera.
How could the performance have been better?
. There are so many good crime writers out there. For those of us who enjoy well written crime stories this was dreadful. The narrators voice was like chalk being drawn across a board. The accent horrible.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yes, it made me realise how patient I am to have kept listening to it.
Any additional comments?
Save your credit for one of the other crime writers.
