Loved the period feel

Excellent reading and characterisation by the narrator making of involved and often chilling story human, accessible and compelling. Felt like a long listen but enjoyable throughout.

One of the great noir stories

One of the great noir stories, albeit one that could have ended a few chapters earlier. The last two twists were unnecessary. The first 9/10ths were brilliant

Excellent performance by Jeff Harding, except for a hilariously bad Scottish accent. American performers generally cannot do Scottish or Irish accents and only spoil things when they try to.
