The Judgement of Strangers

This is an interesting novel, in that it explores some dark themes while keeping a rather spritely pace and worldview.

Terrible sound editing

Loved the story but it was hard to take the abrupt changes in volume and the obviously sloppy editing.

Compelling story

This is the second part of Andrew Taylor's trilogy located around a village called Roth and spanning over 40 years in time. Although this part stands alone as an excellent and compelling story I think you'd get more out of it if you'd heard 'The Office of the Dead' first as it sets the scene for the 'The Judgement of Strangers' and, in the latter, there are oblique references to the past that will be much clearer if you know the back story.
