LOVED IT

I loved this book - it was gritty and compulsive listening - I really related to Knight & Culverhouse as they fought their own private demons whilst investigating grizzly murders - Well narrated by the author Adam Croft. As soon as I had finished I downloaded books 4 & 5 - Cannot wait, Superb

Adam Croft creates a new Gene Hunt

In the Knight and Culverhouse first 3 books Adam Croft has created a Gene Hunt for the noughties. Jack Culverhouse embodies all of the policing made famous by Jack Reagan (for those of us old enough to remember The Sweeny) and Gene Hunt in the brilliant Life on Mars. Culverhouse believes that policing has become far too PC and not in Police Constable sense, and feels it is his job to bring back the bad cop in the good cop bad cop scenario. I love this character, he made me laugh out loud. As to the books, they are pretty well thought out and flow at just the perfect pace to make them enjoyable. Is Adam Croft a great author? Only time will tell. Is he a brilliant and talented story teller? ABSOLUTELY!!! Well done Adam!

Not good

The books are short so no real depth to any story making them very predictable. The characters are just awful, Knight is portrayed as a simpering girl and further she suffers a dreadful tragedy which is treated with flippancy in both the writing and narrative. The author narrates and this too does not lend itself to helping the storyline.

Incredibly boring on all counts

I love finding new authors and crime series. But what a disappointment. Due to sight problems both my husband and I have to read audio books, so we are used to them. This one sent me to sleep numerous times in the first 10 chapters. I struggled on but the author reading his own book, always a bad mistake, droned on and on, hardly any change in the character's voices. And very little emotion either. The story was not worth listening to either. Don't bother.

Great series

What a wonderful character Culverhouse is! Great stories, and a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Make my daily long walks all the more enjoyable, and an incentive to walk, since I only listen to audiobooks whilst exercising

Adam Croft at his best

Great new series introducing Knight and Culverhouse. A formidable duo taking shape in a realistic setting.

Couldn’t get into this set

I only managed half of the first book before I decided my time could be better spent than listening to this. I found the performance poor and the voices hard to discriminate between. Often enough I needed the attribution, “John said…” to be sure of who was speaking. I found the main protagonist flat and constantly doing the wrong thing. She’s supposed to be smart but that seemed a stretch too far when put against her actions.

Sorry I chose this one!

This book is a huge disappointment as far as I am concerned. I tried to get through the first book in this trio, however, the narrator is one of the worst and his accent is really annoying. I can't get past this and understand what the book is about. Returning for one credit.

Not AWFUL but not worth it. Dull

I got about halfway through the first book and stopped. The two lead characters failed to engage me. While I might be able to accept a DCI as openly sexist and bigoted as Culverhouse, it’s hard to accept the leader of an investigative unit would be non-plussed by evidence that pointed to a perpetrator being right-handed. So I found the character of Culverhouse more of a caricature and an unappealing one.

Knight is better, but I don’t find her behavior consistent. I’m all for flawed characters, but they need to be interesting or appealing in some way. Knight is not. She’s just dull.

Also, I’m pretty sure I know the direction of the plot, so I don’t feel the need to finish the story even to find the “whodunnit” answer. All in all not worth the credit & I am returning.

Kept me guessing the whole time!

Narrated by the author and ready listening. Identified with the characters, couldn't wait to hear more, every book different and intriguing. I will listen again soon.
