I enjoy the Inspector Colbeck series, but in this instalment I found the narration to be flat and dull. The voice of Sgt Leeming doesn't fit his physical description as being gruff and rough, at one point he seems to pick up a West Country accent when he is supposed to be a Londoner, similarly Supt. Tallis has lost his "bark".
Until the narrator changes I'll stick to the paperbacks.
I agree with others. I have many audiobooks in this series, which I have enjoyed. However this one spends far, far to much time describing the surroundings, people's clothing, long boring sections on the state of housing or description of a train etc. Whilst we do need these things in this book there is far to much of it and I literally lost the plot. Or nearer the truth didn't care about the plot. Did get to the end but it was hard work. Let's hope he gets back on form with his next book..
