took a while to get into.
i was not to keen on the narration and it got off to a slow start. When Vera entered in part 2 it picked up pace. as ever a great ending.

Excellent story as always from Ann Cleeves
Ann Cleeves is always brilliant at weaving together a plot and I didn’t guess the murderer.
As often happens the overall rating is let down by the reader. Although the voice of Vera was okay, the voices of all the other female characters sounded like five year olds. Fortunately, Ann Cleeves’ descriptions and dialogues gave me a sense of their true characters.
