The writing and cast combine to create a wonderful atmosphere in these stories. I first caught them on Radio 4Extra and am absolutely hooked on them.
Brian Cox brings McLevy to life with all his complexities and shades. It's a great performance - as is Siobhan Redmond's. They play off one another so cleverly - humour one moment and a sense of danger the next.
Well worth buying. I can listen to these stories again and again. Very high quality radio drama.
