British crime novelist Gwendoline Butler has written over 70 novels, many of them about Inspector John Coffin, who works in an unnamed big English city. Butler always manages to entertain by combining the bizarre with a traditional police procedural. In this one, Coffin and his team must discover who is murdering people and leaving their skulls about. Michael Tudor Barnes offers an unassuming reading that generally works well, although at times his pacing seems slightly off--he tends to pause midsentence, where a comma seems unlikely. A relaxed listen. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
