GARDEN OF LAMENTATIONS Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James, Book 17

by | Read by Gerard Doyle

Mystery & Suspense • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This audiobook is the seventeenth in the popular Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James series, and that is a bit of a problem. For the listener to get all the preexisting relationships and plot points in place is like walking on paint that hasn't dried. Wait, did I know that? When did I learn it? Is it important? Why are my shoes sticking to the floor? Crombie plots effectively and writes well, but narrator Gerard Doyle doesn't do much to keep two heavily populated story lines and at least two different time frames distinct. He is good at a range of UK accents, but accents aside, many characters sound the same here. Nor does he in any way indicate when one time frame or plot line has shifted to another. Confusion follows. B.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
