Harvey’s murder mystery is set in London, Cornwall, and other points across the south of England and features a female cop. The story is fast, poignant, and complex. Adjoa Andoh’s excellent pacing delivers perfect clarity to the emotional highs and lows experienced by a significant range of characters. She deftly employs a wide set of British accents from Scotland, Wales, and London’s East End. Her gritty cops work well beside immigrant teens and supercilious bosses. She does the sneering teen girl lead particularly well. Since there are racial undertones in this story, a better vocal depiction of characters’ races would have been helpful, but this is still a great listen for fans of British police drama.
