    Description

    What’s in a label? Are we the product of our upbringing or do we have a natural propensity towards good or evil? The eternal question of nature vs nurture is at the centre of Dr Diane Buckley’s world. A talented freelance forensic psychologist who has never quite found the key to engaging with people on a casual level, she is drafted in to examine a grisly murder – a body found in a children’s playground. 

    The murder carries all hallmarks of one of her most famous incarcerated clients, ‘The Playground Killer’ (aka Alfred Dinklage) – namely the location of the body and the tongue being ‘forked’ like a snake with scissors. Buckley has a race against time to unpick the facts and delve into Dinklage’s often manipulative, complicated mind to understand his past to understand the present events – whilst striving to prevent further murders...as someone out there will stop at nothing to complete what they see as Dinklage’s work.

    Featuring: Kathryn Anderson, Shaun Aylward, Rob James, Collier, Angela Griffin, Lara Hutchinson, Christopher John-Slater, Katherine Kelly, Simon Kent, Damian Lynch, Will Mellor, Gray O'Brien, Bhasker Patel, Jeremy Swift and Tom Turgoose.

    Hard to Listen To for Many Reasons

    I really wanted to like this, but I struggled to get through it and finally quit. The performances are fine (not outstanding, not bad), but the production is very frustrating. Sometimes there are sound effects and it feels like there is something happening visually that the listener isn't privy to, which is annoying. And there are a lot of voices and abrupt shifts between scenes that make it difficult to track what's happening or who is even in the scene. And there's a lot of annoying sounds of nothingness, like people walking around, or someone waking up from a dream. Also, at the beginning of each episode, they go through the entire introductory sequence again. It seemed like a decent story, just couldn't make it through the awful production.

    glad it was free, sad I used a free credit.

    I felt like I was listening to a tv show. I tried to get into it because I'm waiting for my next month credit to hit, but I kept finding myself lost. It was not an enjoyable audiobook.

    Absolutely Awful

    I have to say the idea of this story was good, but the delivery was terrible. Think of turning on your TV and never looking up at the screen. That is what it felt like to listen to this story. There were a lot characters, the plot was confusing, and there were so many predictable stereotypes.
    Overall, I am very disappointed with this one.

    Tedious and irritating

    The worst part of this was the terrible theme music that played before every chapter with the book and author announcement, what a waste of thirty seconds every chapter. It became so annoying I almost gave up on the story itself. Bc I hate to leave something I start unfinished, I labored thru listening to this meandering story and performances. Some of the acting (American Doctor lady) was so over the top—she sounded like she was selling cruise tickets instead of operating a psychiatric ward. And so much of the story was difficult to piece together bc things would happen with sound effects that weren’t explained. Not my cup of tea, for sure.

    Deleted it halfway through...

    I downloaded this because it was free. Halfway though I couldn't listen anymore. The story rapidly jumps from one scene to another, sometimes spending just a few seconds with only a few sentences on one topic. The music thats supposed to signal a scene change gets really loud at times after the words have been quiet and I have to turn my radio down. And they spend a lot of time not really talking about much. Its like they took a play, shortened every scene, and then made it into an audiobook.

    Drama?

    This was like blindly listening to a tv show., very hard to follow but i think had a decent story line? It’s a book you don’t need sound effects...

    Too much music in background

    This book is difficult to listen to because of the distracting and unnecessary background sounds and music. I finally gave up. It was tedious.

    Wow! Loved it!

    I listen to a lot of dramatizations on Audible and this is one of the best. It's an emotional roller coaster....it made me laugh, cry and everything in between. It kept me engaged the entire time with twists and turns in the plot.
    I do feel a narrator would have kept it clearer when switching between scenes and characters but being so engaged you can figure it out.
    This is a definite listen for anyone who likes suspense and drama.

    Too Hard to Follow

    This is not the first time I've tried an Audible selection with sound effects taking the place of words. I can't follow these stories because they rely so heavily on sound effects and I find myself misinterpreting the sound or having to rewind again and again to determine what the sound is meant to be. It is also hard to keep the voices of the characters straight. They are not always identified by name and I am supposed to be able to know who is speaking by the voice alone.

    I ended up being as confused at the end of the story as I was at the beginning because I missed so much that I was supposed to pick up from sound rather than words.

    Ugh too many sound effects

    The story might be good, but there are WAY too many sound effects and long pauses that take away from the story
