Rooted in Evil by Ann Granger is set in the Cotswold village of Weston Saint Ambrose and features Inspector Jess Campbell and Superintendent Ian Carter in their fifth murder mystery.
Carl Finch is a desperate man. Cut out of his stepfather's will, he is heavily in debt, and unless he can persuade his stepsister Hattie to bail him out, he'll be in even more trouble.
Hattie's husband, Guy, has never liked Carl and wants his wife's inheritance for his own use, so Hattie agrees to meet Carl in secret to discuss his predicament. Little does she realise that when she arrives at their meeting point in Crooked Man Wood, she'll find Carl's dead body....

Good story - dreadful narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I have enjoyed all of the other 'Campbell and Carter' books - narrated by Judith Boyd. They are usually 'easy listening' but I was struggling with this one. Julia Barrie's narration is dreadful.

What other book might you compare Rooted in Evil to, and why?

The other Campbell and Carter books move at a better pace due to a better narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Julia Barrie give the characters overdone and dreadful accents, her reading is monotonous and plodding. Bring back Judith Boyd PLEASE!!

If this book were a film would you go see it?

I normally really love Ann Granger books but was very disappointed I found it slow after an initial good start & then it just seemed to drag on. I prefer the narrator that has read the other Campbell & Carter. Overall I was disappointed.
