Good story - dreadful narrator
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.
The other Campbell and Carter books move at a better pace due to a better narrator.
Julia Barrie give the characters overdone and dreadful accents, her reading is monotonous and plodding. Bring back Judith Boyd PLEASE!!
