I didn’t buy the last 2 books in the series as the narrator was changed from Steven Pacey and just from the samples I decided not to waste my money and disappoint myself. I am so pleased they have finally seen sense - this was a fantastic series and I thoroughly enjoyed all the department q books up until that point. I’m only part way through this one and so far it seems just good as the first ones with Steven Pacey - he really does bring these books to life. I do feel I have missed a large chunk from not buying the last 2 but I’ll have to deal with that (unless of course if they re-do them.......)

Great book but very hard to hear

I have enjoyed all the books on this series but this one is set on a very low volume compared to the others? Despite having the volume turned right up I just couldn’t listen in the car. Narrator is excellent as usual but let down by the very poor sound. I missed lots of bits so gave up in the end. Shame as the bits I did hear were good but as they were short stories I kept missing too much

This was a daily deal purchase and money well spent! Very well narrated and easy to listen to story. Had me chuckling a few times to myself and found myself not wanting to get out of the car and stop listening! Some of it is a bit cheesy but hey it is a story!

Great listen

I started this series mainly because of the narrator - he is in my top 3 of favourites! Really pleased I found this series - working my way through and enjoying them all.

This is a great series. I purchased purely on the narration as i find David Monteath extremely easy to listen to and the books he reads are brought to life.

Enjoying the series and off to get the next book - worth a credit for me and pleased I have a new series to get into.

The reviews are spot on!

Wow what a great listen. A totally different book for me - I went for it based on the reviews and spot on so thank you for making me dive in and give it a go! The narration fits the book perfectly - go on give it a go and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did - gripped!

First unsure but pleased I bought it

An unusual one for me but I was pleasantly surprised. Very enjoyable with some twists and turns as the book progressed.

What can I say - I've come to the end of a truly great series. Absolutely brilliant set of books I have recommended to all. This one certainly didn't disappoint and concluded well.

I won't give anything away - have a listen but please read them in the right order as they flow and you do need the background to truly appreciate the series.

Finally the unabridged versions!

I started this series at book 5 with the first unabridged version and have been waiting patiently for the early books to come out! Enjoyed all the books on the series and this is no exception. Thankfully book 2 has just been released so off to get that and hope the other 2 are close behind. So pleased to see the same narrator who does a great job with these.

I'm not a fan of shortened books - so will have to wait for the next 2 to continue my fix of Steele and Logan!

A credit well spent!

This was a great listen. Purchased after finishing the superb Clifton chronicles and also loved this book. The only disappointment was the ending - can't help but feel it was left tad unfinished in some respects - or maybe it was just that I didn't want it to end!

A thoroughly great listen well worth a credit in my opinion. Excellent narration- almost as good as Sean Barrett!
