Publisher's Summary

When DI Colin Strong interviews a suspect on suspicion of handling stolen goods he's convinced he's heard the voice before. Nearly 25 years ago the tape of Wearside Jack taunted West Yorkshire Police and his suspect fits the profile.
Then the body of a known burglar shows up and a mysterious metal case is discovered at the scene. Strong turns to his close friend, journalist Bob Souter, and embarks on an awkward alliance to probe areas he is unable to explore.
As the murder suspects start to disappear Strong must discover just who the shadowy figure inciting fear and panic amongst those he encounters is.
Strong wants to bring a murderer to justice and Souter is hungry for a story. Who will get to the truth first and can their friendship remain intact?

Deep & interesting

This story had an interesting twist with Wearside Jack brought up and the main story of murder. The police were believable. Not over grumpy or ignorant like sometimes! Though as got deeper we saw another side to 1 hmmmm
Overall enjoyable tale & great narrator with local accents. Local to me anyways.

Very good story and characters

Where does Trophies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It isn't one of the best though I did enjoy the story and the characters were believable too.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably DI Strong, because he's the main character and relatable as a Yorkshireman.


What does Richard Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Definitely the accents but I would say that the narration doesn't even compare with other audiobooks I've read. It' honestly felt like he was just reading the book rather than acting it at times.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

SPOILER ALERT!! Towards the end, the thought that Bob Souter might've been shot by police.


Any additional comments?

I will listen to the whole series, I haven't been put off by the narration.
