What did you like best about There's Trouble Brewing: Nigel Strangeways, Book 3? What did you like least?
This is an excellent story with lots of period detail and local colour. The solution is a little obvious from the mid-point but this does not detract from the denoument and the detective's explanation of the crime.
The reading, however, is full of irritating idiosyncrasies particularly the strange, halting delivery with which is quite effective in the dialogue but otherwise disrupts the flow and obscures the meaning of many passages. Also, for a story set in Dorset, it is confusing that almost everyone speaks with a Northcountry accent.
There are also some editing defects at intervals with short passages repeated.

Any additional comments?
Kris Dyer does a fairly good job overall, but he has a rather halting approach when acting as the narrator, which can be annoying. The story is good, but the narration could have used an editor. There are several places where phrases are repeated, specially toward the end of the book.
