Spoilt by the narrator
Why was Christian Rodska not commissioned to read Falco! He is Falco! I have great respect for our narrators but this was dreadful. I did not finish the story as I found it too difficult to follow the character dialogue. There was no attempt to give a voice to any of the characters and the whole thing merged into a boring mumble. I am so sad because the same chap has read all the other newly released books too but not for me. One of the few times I will be returning a book.
