Publisher's Summary

DI Sally Parker has a serial killer on her patch. One thing that sets this killer apart from the others she's hunted before: his willingness to leave DNA at each of the crime scenes. It's up to Sally and her partner, DS Jack Blackman, to find out why before the body count rises to double figures.
While Sally is engrossed in the investigation, her ex-husband, Darryl, pays a surprise visit to her new home. His actions not only threaten Sally's newfound confidence, but they also force the DCI to give Sally an ultimatum concerning the case. Can Sally overcome all the obstacles fate has placed in her path and arrest the brazen killer?

Painful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The worst narrated audio book I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. Made the story sound as if it had been written by a 5 year old. I was constantly exclaiming at how dreadful it was.


Would you ever listen to anything by M. A. Comley again?

No.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Charlotte Anne Dore?

Anyone who can read fluently!

Tolerably good plot - ruinous narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not to an American or anyone familiar with UK dialects. The narrator is low, painlessly "correct" and reads as though she was on a stage. It made a plausible plot dire on the ears.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked D.I. Sally Parker because I know it can be tough for a female officer in a police force. Then men don't get much of a run as characters but there is sufficient to add flesh to skeletons.


Would you be willing to try another one of Charlotte Anne Dore’s performances?

NO


Was Wrong Place worth the listening time?

Yes and no.


Any additional comments?

I was strongly tempted to return this one and after 3 starts I managed to get into the plot. As I am a supporter of police procedurals, the advertising wasn't misleading but books written by women should not always be read by the sisterhood. I'm sorry that Charlotte Ann Dore should try again in a few years when her voice loses the schoolgirl pitch. Alternatively she could practice after whisky.
