Audio book from the author.
Very good indeed. I enjoyed the narration, the descriptions of the Pennines which I have never visited, the characters. Although the is the fifth in a series and the first I have read, there was enough information to not get confused. There is some drama going on as the team hunt down The Hacker who is a character from the previous books. He is real nasty person indeed. There are parts which are very emotional, the parts where the detective is kidnapped, I thought they were the most enjoyable, so that says loads about me also, I enjoy the sadistic and gruesome parts. There is plenty of drama, details and gripping
