I got this by accident when I was trying to get a book with a similar title by Ian Rankin. As it turned out it was a reasonable listen but the characters were simplistic. The crime eventually solved seemed like one of those "i'm tired of writing this book; i better finish it quick" type endings (also in common with Rankin).
A reasonable crime story with a great start and some potential for some really strong characters amd thrilling twists but ultimately it ended thinly.
Quite a bit of swearing but that makes it a bit more realistic. The conversational language can be annoyingly flowery In the 1800s would people really refer each other as "Master Potts" several times in the same conversation? The descriptions of the female characters were annoying, not as if describing people but as if describing foodstuffs or clothing.
Authentic Midlands accents.
