Publisher's Summary

Corrupt senior officers, a murder, a rape, and a flasher. Can DI Terry McGuire's day get any worse? McGuire became a police officer to uphold the law and to protect those who cannot protect themselves. When he discovers a connection between a former friend and colleague, and a body buried on a beach that appears to have been frozen for five years, McGuire knows there is only one course of action he can take.

With a murder, a rape, and a flasher adding to McGuire's headache, is there a connection between his colleagues and the awful events unfolding? Can McGuire stand up for what he believes and bring the perpetrators to justice, whoever they may be?

Authors Arthur Cole and Nigel Williams have nearly 50 years of policing experience between them.

    "Outstanding narration!"
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book on its release and enjoyed it, but hearing it has brought an entirely deeper appreciation of the writing. This book is far better as an audio book than it is in print. I found Terry's strength of character easier to understand when it felt as if he were talking to me. The book didn't feel as rushed as it had when reading and you could feel the evil arrogance of the corrupt police officers in the narrator's voice. Jake Urry has turned an enjoyable book into a masterpiece. Fabulous!

    "Good introduction to the series"

    Jake Urry has one of those voices that hold your attention to the point where I think he could read out his shopping list and I would find it interesting. The book did have more to offer than a list of provisions. I haven't read anything by either author before but there was a definite feel of authenticity to the police characters and their language and it's no surprise that both authors are former police officers. This was fairly short with the narration lasting under 4 hours. DI Terry McGuire was a great character and I will probably read more of the series. My usual problem here with swearing as while it felt totally in character I just don't like to hear it narrated.

    My thanks to Jake Urry for this audible copy of Unethical Conduct

    Story
    "Straightforward police procedural"

    This is the first book about DI Terry McGuire who is an all-round nice chap and not at all like the majority of fictional, broken detectives. That was quite a pleasant change. Set in Wales, DI McGuire is tasked to investigate an allegation into corruption within his force. On top of that, a dead body is discovered on the beach and a flasher is exposing himself near the local caravan park.
    So McGuire has a fair bit to deal with, but remains completely unflustered throughout.
    Written by two former police officers, their experience shines through clearly in the depiction of the investigative procedures. The characters and the dialogue also seemed very authentic. At times, it actually felt as if I was listening to a memoir. My only minor criticism about the plot was that everything just slotted into place too easily. My second - again minor - niggle relates to the portrayal of female characters. They seemed to be typecast in the classic roles of supportive and nurturing. In future books, it would be nice to see a bit more suspense and perhaps the odd female character that doesn't fit that mould. However, as a first book and serving as an introduction to the series, it was pretty good.

    The story is told from the first-person perspective of DI McGuire and Jake Urry's tone of voice fitted that character to a T. The narration definitely enhanced the story for me.

    Overall, a short and very straightforward British police procedural, which kept me entertained and held my attention, but was rather undemanding.

    "Good book with excellent narration."

    I don't suppose I'd have read this book if I'd come across it in a book shop, the cover is not at all inspiring, however, I listened to this as an audiobook via Audible and that was a totally different experience. Jake Urry was the narrator and I loved his sultry drawl, which perfectly matched the characters.

    The two authors have served many years in the police force, so when they write a police procedural about internal police corruption, it adds another dimension to a hidden vice, that we prefer to believe does not exist.

    There are three aspects to DI Terry McGuire's inquiries - firstly a corruption case brought by some proven criminals who claimed that some of their offences had been planted on them by the police. Secondly, a dead body that had been dumped after spending five years in a freezer. And thirdly, a flasher who was stalking women in the local park.

    As the investigation proceeds and evidence gradually reveals itself, I became more involved with Terry McGuire's character, though I didn't manage to keep all the villains in place in my brain. No matter, it was an excellent listen and I shall be searching out more from the narrator.

    "Wow"

    The storyline is gritty and full of a different take on a cop story.
    Finding out who is guilty of what and carrying it through. Good police work against dirty.
    Jake Urry as always narrated and was excellent. Atmosphere flowed and kept me hooked.
