With a title straight from Shakespeare's HAMLET and the narrator's top-notch performance, McCarthy’s latest forensic mystery is one to savor. Back again are the team of John Eisenmenger and Helena Flemming. When a body washes up on a river bank, a forensic examination indicates that the C.O.D was murder. In the village five bodies are discovered in the garden of a convicted pedophile. The investigations that follow establish that there's much more involved than meets the eye. Narrator Sean Barrett demonstrates his impressive versatility. As the story demands, he gives a performance worthy of the Bard one minute and the next abruptly switches to pure Cockney.
