Summary

DI Wesley Peterson is called to an unusual crime scene. The victim, Charles Marrick, has been murdered, his body drained of blood. Described by those who knew him as "evil", it seems there won't be a shortage of suspects. But when a popular local vet is murdered in an identical fashion, Wesley wonders what the two men could possibly have in common. Meanwhile, Wesley's archaeologist friend, Neil Watson, is alarmed when he starts getting disturbing anonymous letters about macabre events at a medieval abbey. Neil fears that the author of the letters is the killer that Wesley is tracking. As the sinister truth unfolds, both Wesley and Neil are forced to face shocking revelations.

Almost there.

This was a satisfying listen, but it fell down in one or two spots. Some of the characters were rather one-dimensional and the ending was a little weak. It's shame because it is almost there, almost a cracker, but not quite.

Distinctly average

It's fine, performance OK. Little slow and reading is a bit ponderous. Nothing I've not heard before but certainly not terrible. Sort of thing you can keep playing and pop off for a few minutes and nothing much will have happened by the time you get back.

Solid Brit Cop/Crime

British crime. A ripping yarn of "Midsomer Murders" flavour. Solid characterisation and a good plot. The narration was smoothly performed.
