Sandy Mitchell's Dead in the Water
Dead In The Water is the latest offering by Sandy Mitchell in the Ciaphas Cain series. The beloved cowardly commissar is brought to us in audio book format this outing, a format I know many have issues with. In this story, Cain is on a river world, where a squad of Vostroyans have gone missing. At the same time someone is attacking both rebel and Imperial locations, causing general havoc. Is it the missing Vostroyans, or something more sinister. On the whole, it was another enjoyable audio book for me. Hearing voices for the characters adds a new dimension to old favorite books, though I have to say that Toby Longworth can only do about three voices, and then he varies the pitch to change characters. Fans of Cain should pick this up, its definitely worth it.
