I've listened to all the Simon Serrailler crime novels and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Particularly gratifying is getting to know the characters in depth and following their travails as well as the crime in hand. To say that Steven Pacey 'narrates' the story is to do him an injustice. He makes the novel and all the characters come to life by adopting very different voices for all the main characters. So distinctive are they you know instantly who is speaking and can picture them in your mind's eye. Thoroughly recommend this series but you should start with Book 1 - I envy you the journey.

I have now listened to the 7 books in the Simon Serrailler series one after another - and can only hope that we will be treated to another instalment soon. Characters and plots that flow over from one book to another weave themselves into an overall picture that is much richer than the usual detective series. However small their part Susan Hill makes us care about, despair of or dislike every single character, no-one is wasted, and she tackles some very difficult social issues with delicacy rather than a sledgehammer. Unlike some reviewers I have found the standard has remained constant throughout the series both in terms of the writing and in the very excellent reading by Steven Pacey. It is hard to review any of these books without giving away the plot - but then the plot is really only part of the reason for listening. Thoroughly recommended.
