A young woman is found naked and strangled in an alley in well-to-do St John's Wood. The neighbours would love to pin it on the enigmatic black stranger who has just moved in.
Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen is convinced there's more to the case than anyone wants to admit; no-one's listening. In walks WPC Helen Tozer – awkward chatterbox, farmgirl, and the first woman to enter the murder unit – and gives Breen a breakthrough.
A W. F. Howes audio production.

The narrator has clearly never read the books
I’m about 2 chapters into this audio book and is absolutely painful to listen to. The narrator Cameron Stewart tries his hardest to put on an awful Irish accent for the main character Cathal Breen, but obviously hasn’t read the books, or he would know that Cathal Breen grew up in West London, the son or Irish immigrant parents.
When he imitates the voice of a woman it’s as though he’s putting on the voice of a Punch & Judy show.
Cringeworthy is the only possible review. I love, really love these books to read, but to listen to is so disappointing.
Does anyone audition the narrators?
I’ve heard people doing better efforts reading to their children and with more convincing voices.
