Excellent Narrator

Easy and enjoyable listen, not badly written but an excellent narrator who makes the most of the text in front of him. Each character is easy to spot from the tone, accents and dialects used by the narrator...

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

This is the first of a series of Captain Lacey mysteries so we have the back story as well as the mysteries to be solved. The story is a little slow, but is well told and interesting enough to make me want to know what happens next and "who dunnit".

I think that despite my hesitation I will buy the next book as the characters have been established and I am interested enough to want to know how they will be developed in the next book.
