Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

For any narrator with a gift for English accents, Robinson's first Detective Alan Banks novel provides a richly stocked candy store. And Mark Honan has a very sweet tooth. He does any number of northern English dialects, switching from one to another in the blink of an eye and throwing in one or two tough London brogues for good measure. His relish in the performance is not the least of the pleasures in this story, which has the transplanted big-city inspector investigating exactly the kind of depraved and vicious crimes he expected to leave behind. Honan's zealous performance will make it a bit more difficult for listeners to sleep peacefully in the countryside. M.O. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
