Ross Greenwood's sublime writing is enhanced by David Thorpe's outstanding narration. The Soul Killer had a horrific childhood--his overzealous mother punished him severely and taught him to "repent in this life, rejoice in the next." Listeners will be engrossed in alternating chapters told from the perspectives of the ruthless killer and the police who are searching for him. Thorpe is unbeatable as Detective Inspector John Barton, who carries out the painstaking work along with his team. The story commingles scenes of warm family life and Christmas planning with the plans of a psychopath whose methods are meticulous and realistically rendered. Thorpe's best creation is tragic Barney Trimble, a kind yet disappointed old man. Because of the sizable number of characters and the glimpses of a serial killer's mind, audio offers an unbeatable but chilling listening experience.
