Graham Mack masterfully introduces Lancashire, England, and its unforgettable residents. Listeners join Detective Inspector Freya Bloom and her eccentric team as they confront the tragic death of 13-year-old Simon, a special needs youth who had been mercilessly bullied. Mack particularly excels with diverse voices and accents, for example, the voice of Scottish Officer Gillespie, whose earthy sense of humor adds levity to the heartbreaking story. And the grumpy, sarcastic Welsh coroner is hilarious! The inner lives of the detectives and suspects are fascinating, especially as delivered with Mack's conversational style and convincing emotional range. Listeners grow even more engaged as twists and turns prove many leads to be false. The climax is a shattering listen--but well worth every heart palpitation.
