Terry Wale's pleasantly throaty narration of the latest police procedural featuring Detective Inspector Bill Slider is as British as tea and crumpets. Slider and his wisecracking detective sergeant search for the murderer of a disgraced BBC journalist. They’re also tracking down an old enemy of Slider who is threatening him and his pregnant fiancée. Wale solidly portrays an array of characters—from a dapper police doctor and a high-society socialite to a working-class smart aleck. This is a gem of an audio for listeners who enjoy British mysteries. It’s spiced with a bit of romance and sprinkled with quintessentially British slang.
