Too long!

21 discs is too long for me. It was a good book, but didn't keep you riveted to the player. At times it was like a homework assignment getting through it, but the characters were good and the book was good.

This is a great book - I like them long and the characters are all very interesting. Lynley solves it rather suddenly, but that is just a minor annoyance. Narrator is very good, and the story holds your interest.
