Publisher's Summary

Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He's a murder detective. He's brilliant; he's intense; he's instinctive. And yet there are rumours that DCI Luther is bad - not corrupt, but tormented.
The first in a new series of novels featuring DCI John Luther takes us into Luther's past and into his mind. It is the story of the case that tore his personal and professional relationships apart, and propelled him over the precipice.

Called to justice.

A tall and intuitive detective follows leads, but not necessarily the rules, to obtain a just solution.The story leaps between characters telling it, and without any element of instruction, also fills in the reasons for the original action. Some nasty killings, but carefully explained. Great narration means the detectives are never confused; they are all clearly delineated. The ending was never in doubt - just how long it would take Luther to solve it, and how much paperwork he would have to sort out afterwards was left to your imagination. Has a filmic quality to it. Sorry to have finished it.

Just as good as the TV adaptation

I really enjoyed Luther. A great story and I really empathised with Luther and his need to keep going on the job despite his personal life falling apart. Would like some more please? Could we have some Alice too? The interaction with Luther and her was too good not to be included in the audio book.
