Narrator Sean Barrett does his usual commendable work with this jam-packed series full of villains--both criminals and cops. Kind and conscientious pathologist John Eisenminger is in love with ruthless Detective Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton. Listeners accompany the pair as they tackle the 20-year-old murder of a woman who was about to turn in her crooked father, Steven Grover-Williams. The trail leads to the expertly rendered psychopath Georgie, Grover-Williams's hit man, who enjoys terrifying and then incinerating his enemies. Barrett skillfully navigates the novel's twists, including Wharton's dealmaking with Grover-Williams. The assortment of characters--major and minor--and intricate story make audio the ideal format for this gritty, sometimes disheartening procedural.
