Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Graham Hurley gives us a mixed portrait of Portsmouth, England, in its glorious variety--birds, time/weather charts, and the Cowes Regatta. Conversely, there is the raw and crude violence of those who live lives of poverty or crime. As DI Joe Faraday doggedly seeks a murderer, he confronts all of the city's realities. Narrator Tim Pepper is splendid delivering the novel's descriptive and varied language. He particularly excels in portraying the relationship between Faraday and his deaf son. Listeners will be satisfied by this atmospheric piece. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
