Quite well read and not a bad story. I would say fits in the cosy crime genre. nothing particlarly nasty. But then nothing great about the story., if a bit silly in places. I would say it could be a third shorter if you take out the long descriptions that have no bearing on the story. But that seems to the norm with these kinds of book. If your after an easy listen this is for you. But don't expect any great literature!

I just love the characters in this series and feel as if I know them well.
The story is typically involved with twists and turns that keep the interest when listening.
I can't wait for the next episode to see how the characters develop.
I really like Clare Corbett's performance which is clear, consistent and easy to listen to.

This was not my favorite in the series, to say the least. Perhaps I would like it more if I had read it, as I did any of the previous books. I do give credit to the narrator for her gift with accents (although why can't they ever "do" American) and her female voices are good but the male characters are all are very poorly interpreted, which is quite off putting. Nelson sounds like a dolt and Cathbad's dreamy, mystical sound is trite.
I look forward to each new Elly Griffiths mystery but in this one, I identified the killer very early on...not satisfying at all. Also, I am kind of bored with the whole Ruth/Nelson thing....fish or cut bait, already!
(Oh, nuts, I'm sounding like quite a curmudgeon!) Read the series in order...I loved the early books!

Always difficult for me to put down Elly's mysteries. More Ruth Galloway mysteries for us please!
