My main achievement today was in fact sorting out a little bit of music for the interludes between chapters. This is not required but I think it gives audiobooks a little bit more and certainly adds to the atmosphere. The music is a mix of spooky children’s voices, a haunting piano piece and the sound of the sea. I had great fun mixing it all together but it always takes you longer that you think even to produce somethings that’s about 15 seconds long!
Anyway my wife is calling me to get downstairs and make the evening meal so need to sign off below is the blurb on the book, which is a really good example of the genre but what especially appealed to me, a bit like ‘Shetland’ on the TV (but based on Anne Cleeves novels), what the setting, which is rather novel! Anyway the blurb:
A half-naked woman dead in a ditch.
A disappearing pathologist. A teenager run off the road. For a peaceful island, Anglesey is experiencing abnormal levels of crime. What's the connection?
DS Dara Brennan has women problems. His boss, Amanda Gold, is embroiled in office politics and his wife thinks he's a disappointment. And then there's DS Kelly Jones.
As missing-person cases become murder enquiries, Dara must put aside his personal life and focus on the killer's trail. The only tenuous link between the victims is an abandoned children's home. What happened there, twenty years ago? And who is hell-bent on revenge?
Dara is keeping his eyes on the road. But he forgets to look in the mirror.
It’s a good read but will be even better in audio!
