REVIEW: A Slow Fire Burning

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Narrator performance: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Slow Fire Burning is an intense thriller surrounding the murder of a man on a houseboat. We see the investigation focus on the woman he spent his last night with, a woman who is a bit troubled. We learn about her past and his past and begin to dig a bit more into his family and the dynamics there as well as his neighbors in the marina where he keeps his houseboat. There are several strands and lots of characters at first, but it all weaves together nicely as it goes along. There are good bread crumbs along the way and red herrings that are easy to grab on to but in the end the culprit is both interesting and yet makes sense.

And whew boy, did Rosamund Pike knock it out of the park with the narrator performance! She was absolutely fabulous at conveying the emotion and fear and intensity of each moment.

Thanks to for access to this ALC. All opinions above are my own.

Tell me does a houseboat sound like a nightmare or a dream to you?
