I didn't like the narration
Irritating accents spoil a good story
Cyprus setting very interesting especially as I am familiar with the areas in the story. Fascinating political and economic intrigues.
Sometimes the detailed descriptions of scene and costume were frustrating when I just wanted to know what happens next!
This is not a particularly useful question because all the characters contribute to the story.
The accents - very irritating and not very good, wander about a bit, so sometimes I was not sure who was speaking.
The performance of the reader of the first two books was better by far.
I read these books many years ago and have been delighted by how much more I have enjoyed them in audio for.
