I really love this series.
And I do mean LOVE. Here are all the reasons why:
Grainger has created a host of characters with depth, flaws and quirkiness - and they're consistent from book to book. The lead, DC Smith, is a brilliant character. He's an honorable man. I hold him in equal regard to Gamache. (And that's high praise if you love Louise Penny's series as I do.)
Gildart Jackson is the perfect voice. It's an absolute pleasure to hear him read.
The plotline holds my interest.
The violence happens offstage. I don't have to hear the gruesome details and have those floating around in my brain for days.
I don't care who did it - rather, I just love hearing the whole story.
I love the music references and DC's interesting choice of instrument.
I love the way the smallest details make their way from book to book.
If you're looking for a series to get into during the winter, this is it. Start with the first and just know you'll have some delightful listens. I've now listened to all of them twice just to get a little closer to understanding how Grainger writes. He's great.

This narrator is perfect
I love the D.C. Smith series, not least because Gildart Jackson is the perfect voice for David Smith. Grainger's writing is witty, literate, and clear as a ringing bell. The stories are well done and satisfying. I hope Smith never retires!
