Val McDermid at her best
From the opening chapter you know this is classic, quality crime writing at it's best and a very welcome return for Carol and Tony. This had me gripped from the start, by the plot, the superb characterisation and the relationship between Carol and Tony. There is some unpalatable violence towards women, however it is not gratuitous and is acceptable within the gripping plotline. This book reminds me just how well Val McDermid writes and that she is in a different league to most other crime writers. For those of who find the relationship between Tony and Carol so compelling this is a very satisfying listen.
I always enjoy Saul Reichlin's narration but did find some of the characters voices a little irritating- this, however is a minor fault as his rich, dark voice is well suited to the story.

I struggle with Saul Reichlin...
...and for that reason I don't listen to David Hewson any more either - his Scottish accent in this one is truly laughable and pretty much everything he announces is monotone but the story's good and I'd happily consider others by the same author but with a different narrator...
