A crime series that stands out

It's the characterisations that make this series better than the average crime drama. The three main characters are written and played with real skill - plus McLevy and Mulholland are at times so very funny with their banter and bickering.

Keeping me entertained.

I'm growing addicted to this radio play series.

As I've said before, I was led to these plays because of my disappointing experience with the narration of the McLevy novels and the cast here do a much better job than Ashton on the novels.

Great plot lines, humour and characterisation - the stories have it all. I shall certainly continue with the series.
