Richard Armitage is a consummate actor and, best of all, master of a dazzling array of regional UK accents. The local speech of the Fens is here, but so also are Welsh, Scottish, and many other shades of difference among the Fenland constabulary. The accents create texture and enable the listener to recognize each of Jackman's team members as their nemesis, Alistair Ashcroft, a serial killer who almost destroyed Jackman once before, returns to finish the job. Ashcroft is brilliant and sick, a dazzling manipulator who delights in causing terror before moving in for the kill. It all starts with a series of comically bungled rural burglaries. Guns. Pigs. Diesel fuel. Why bungled, and what connects them? Ellis understands psychopaths, to gripping effect. B.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
