Gritty and hard-hitting

A brilliantly written and dramatised no nonsense, police procedural series with great characters throughout. Also it doesnt shy from any sensitive issues plaguing UK and tackles them headon.

Gritty. Grisly. Gruesome. Real. Heart-wrenching.

Stellar performances from an all star cast. Glad it was audio. Not sure I would have been able to handle video of some of the subject matter dealt with in this series. DCI Stone is wonderful character. I enjoyed making the journey with him, even when I wanted to tap him on the head for being an ass at times. I highly recommend this series to any fan of police procedurals with powerful story lines and lots of heart!

Surprised more people in US haven’t heard these !

I took a chance on this and loved it! It’s 4 stories radio dramas and it’s honestly the best series I’ve ever heard !
Stone is a realistic detective you quickly start to love ! There are sound effects , music etc it’s very much like listening to a play ! I listen while walking my dogs and this was much more fun than a normal book !
I got chills at Times bc of the suspense etc !
Very dramatically acted out !
You get 4 short stores w same detective ! I esp liked the one w the Down syndrome actor ! I’ll buy everything this man produces! It’s that good !

Great entertainment

I enjoy BBC full cast radio dramas. This is very enjoyable. So enjoyable I preordered the next offering. I had a little difficulty with some of the full cockney accents but not enough to obscure the meaning or detract from the story.

Biblical inerrancy to prove biblical inerency.

Very disappointing. the author Begins by explaining that he has no intention objectively looking at the information in the Book of John. He simply says that everything is perfectly correct and then proceeds to prove it is perfectly correct by random quotes from other places in the book and elsewhere in the Bible.

Great cast

It’s the cast that makes this series entertaining. The writing is mediocre and the stories are a dime a dozen, but the acting makes it worth listening to. The ending is highly unsatisfying, which doesn’t help
