Best of the series
Very clear narration. Good speech. Good accents. Good resonant voice. Excellent studio quality.
There is a fantastic second-last chapter where there are car chases, shoot-outs, cliff-hanging clashes, and just when you think it's all over, with a lovely denouement, there's another up-tick of excitement in the very last chapter. Beautifully structured. Lovely characters. Great dialogue. Final lines are like music.
Easy, knowledgeable, laid-back and richly resonant.
The end of the second-last chapter is very moving. Well, the same goes for the chapter - I forget the number - at the end of Wednesday, where there is a really sad scene involving a woman cop.
This is really good from the very first moment right through to the closing moment.

Best of the three
I don't know, really. They're both so good.
Thabethe the villain is so bad. So, so bad. And so well performed. I love him. If you know what I mean.
The final scene in the park is beautiful, but the scene just before that in the hospital is lyrically beautiful, too. Then the couple of traumatic scenes earlier on. I don't know. It's all wonderful.
The Ryder Sanction: cops on the hunt
I heard the second book first and then got to the others. It doesn't matter, really. They're all great stories in themselves. But it's nice now to see the thread running through all of them. And the theme. Which I take to be 'what is justice; what is morality, when the devil is in your sights?'
