Editorial Reviews

Operating in the midst of the First World War, tensions are always at a high level in Graham Ison's Hardcastle Series. Performed by the intense and sharp-voiced David Thorpe, this adventure follows the famed Detective Inspector Hardcastle as he investigates a mysterious mishap wherein a seemingly innocent household was bombed by accident. The only problem, though - one of the bodies recovered appears to have been killed before the bombing. As fans of Ison and Hardcastle have come to expect, Hardcastle's Obsession keeps pace with clever dialogue and even more clever plot twists that is bound to keep your hand far from the pause bottom.

Wonderful read

This is my second, and certainly not my last, Hardcastle audible. I listen to them while I am on the road alot and they are great in both content and narration.

Another great story from Graham Ison brilliantly read by David Thorpe

I really enjoy this series set in WW1 London. Complex plots fascinating detail about the War both at home and at the Front. David Thorpe's narration complement it perfectly!
