Publisher's Summary

DI Sally Parker has a serial killer on her patch. One thing that sets this killer apart from the others she's hunted before: his willingness to leave DNA at each of the crime scenes. It's up to Sally and her partner, DS Jack Blackman, to find out why before the body count rises to double figures.

While Sally is engrossed in the investigation, her ex-husband, Darryl, pays a surprise visit to her new home. His actions not only threaten Sally's newfound confidence, but they also force the DCI to give Sally an ultimatum concerning the case. Can Sally overcome all the obstacles fate has placed in her path and arrest the brazen killer?

where do I start?

the oversimplified story line and characters? crime scene 101 dialogue? under developed principal? or the clipped, excruciatingly slow and wooden narrator? don't. dont bother. unless you're new to reading.

SO BAD

I thought every detective book with British D.I.s would be good. Oh, so wrong! This is so poorly written and read it could be a parody but, alas, it's not.

No, just no.

I never write reviews but this time i had to.
I came to chapter 3 before i gave up.
First of all, im not English so it might just be me but i strugled to hear if the narrator was English, american or australian and on top of that she sounded as bored as watching paint dry, you can hear she is reading word for word with no excitment what so ever. The book might be good, but i just can't listen to this

Good story but narrator was not great

Story was very good but the narrator sounded like a robot. I could've just had the free narration on the kindle instead of spent the money on the narration. I hate to write a bad review and the voice was nice but too mechanical.

Disappointing and dreadfully narrated.

The story was nothing special but the narration was bizarre. She sounded like a 9 year old taking elocution lessons and sounding out every syllable as the syntax was so abnormal. Is the narrator American doing a poor interpretation of an English accent? Dick Van Dyke did better in Mary Poppins !

Painful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The worst narrated audio book I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. Made the story sound as if it had been written by a 5 year old. I was constantly exclaiming at how dreadful it was.

Would you ever listen to anything by M. A. Comley again?

No.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Charlotte Anne Dore?

Anyone who can read fluently!

Disappointing

What would have made Wrong Place better?

Started listening to this book and cannot continue due to the poor performance by the narrator. Over pronouncing words, no feeling in any of the story so far. It is supposed to be a crime book which need to have some rawness about it but because of the narrator you cannot tell.

Would you ever listen to anything by M. A. Comley again?

Yes as long as its not this narrator

How could the performance have been better?

Re record this book with a different narrator. If I was to say Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins I am sure most people will understand where I am coming from.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I dont know. I've listened to Comley before and utterly disappointed in this narrator being so crap I cannot continue. A waste of a credit

Any additional comments?

Sack the narrator

Tolerably good plot - ruinous narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not to an American or anyone familiar with UK dialects. The narrator is low, painlessly "correct" and reads as though she was on a stage. It made a plausible plot dire on the ears.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked D.I. Sally Parker because I know it can be tough for a female officer in a police force. Then men don't get much of a run as characters but there is sufficient to add flesh to skeletons.

Would you be willing to try another one of Charlotte Anne Dore’s performances?

NO

Was Wrong Place worth the listening time?

Yes and no.

Any additional comments?

I was strongly tempted to return this one and after 3 starts I managed to get into the plot. As I am a supporter of police procedurals, the advertising wasn't misleading but books written by women should not always be read by the sisterhood. I'm sorry that Charlotte Ann Dore should try again in a few years when her voice loses the schoolgirl pitch. Alternatively she could practice after whisky.

Had to finish at chapter 9!

Tried to persevere with this book as I would have enjoyed the story but the performances seemed to irritate me as they seemed unnatural and stilted!
Too clipped and precise for a couple of busy cops hunted down a grotesque murderer!
So if all performances of M A Comley are by the same people regrettably I will not choose any other titles!

A great listen

This is the first book I've listened to from this author and I wasn't disappointed. If you like a good police crime novel, you'll enjoy this. Planning on listening to the next in the series at some point, now that I am hooked, so it can't be bad. Happy listening :)

Good story

I couldn't listen to the narrator any longer so I switched to reading it instead.
To me it sounded very amateur and clipped.
The story was good but a bit rushed in parts and the "polite" wording was also a bit unnatural.
I enjoyed reading the book but I may well have given up if I had carried on listening to it.

Good story but...

.... the narration was "wooden," it lacked fluidity. The story itself was good with good plot.

A good story

But, sadly, the reader, was terrible!
The most stilted performance I’ve heard so far from an Audible book.
I was sorely tempted to return the book and ask for a refund, but, the story line was interesting, and the ending was not one I could have guessed at.
But, I won’t be buying another book read by Charlotte Anne Dore!

Terrible dialogue, dreadful narration

I really tried, but couldn't get past the stilted, stiff dialogue and painful narration style.

Terrible Narration

Would you try another book written by M. A. Comley or narrated by Charlotte Anne Dore?

Definitely not one narrated by Charlotte Anne Dore

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The mystery of who the "bad guy" was good enough to keep me interested & plough through the horrible narration to find out 'who dunnit' but the narrator made all the characters just sound stupid & annoying

Would you be willing to try another one of Charlotte Anne Dore’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from Wrong Place?

The ex-husband. Didnt really see the point of him or that storyline

Any additional comments?

Possible the worst narration I have listened too. It was like she was trying too hard to properly pronounce every syllable of every word. It just sounded ridiculously stilted & fake, with odd pauses & weird emphasis on the wrong words
