Ric Jerrom's cool, yet understated performance - he really brought the lives of the inhabitants of an inner city area to life.
It's the story of outsiders being forced to interact with different people within a somewhat closed society. The character of Pup and Dolly were probably the most interesting - Diarmand, less so. It was a disturbing listen though.
I'm always happy with Ric narrates Rendell's novels - his voice has a soft, low, yet slightly menacing tone. He seems to end every sentence with a question mark - if you know what I mean? A raised intonation.
It made me feel sorry for the character of Dolly especially, but also try to imagine what it would be like to be isolated in a city as busy as London. It was interesting to learn what drives certain characters to carry out the actions that they do.
