Fiona, however, has secrets of her own. She is still recovering from a crushing psychological breakdown, and the feelings that haunt her are constantly threatening to undermine the mask of normality she has learned to wear. As she begins to piece together a bizarre and terrifying conspiracy, Fiona finds that what makes her vulnerable also gives her a unique insight into the secrets of the dead, and in solving the murders she can begin to start solving the riddles of her own past.

Loved this one
Would you listen to Talking to the Dead again? Why?
Yes, eventually. Fiona is an interesting character and I've enjoyed getting to know her,
What did you like best about this story?
It's a good solid crime story which is well paced and kept me interested right up to the end. I really like the main character, Fiona Griffiths, and wanted to know how she was going to deal with what was going on around her.
What does Siriol Jenkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
She reads it very well. I wouldn't have had a clue how to pronounce all the Welsh place names.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I raced through it, listening to it at every possible opportunity.
Any additional comments?
I downloaded book 2 in the series as soon as I finished.

Too much tedious detail
when i read the overview for this novel I was really looking forward to listening to it. I was very disappointed by the amount of focus placed on the detectives mental health and not the crime. Not sure if I will listen to others in the series. Great narrator.
