    Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He’s a murder detective with an extraordinary case clearance rate. He’s obsessive, instinctive, and intense. Nobody who ever stood at his side has a bad word to say about him. And yet there are rumors that Luther is bad - not corrupt, not on the take, but tormented. He seethes with a hidden fury that at times he can barely control. Sometimes it sends him to the brink of madness, making him do things he shouldn’t - things well beyond the limits of the law.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Luther to be better than the print version?

    As an American, I preferred to listen to the narration of this story rather than use my own inner voice for the characters. English accents are fascinating, and David Bauckham, does an excellent version of Luther's persona.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Luther, obviously. He's a smart character and makes the tough choices. And well written. I don't listen to many police dramas, but I could definitely find time for more Luther. In some ways, Luther is like that bald guy on the TV show The Shield (at first anyway). Even when he starts crossing the line, like going vigilante a little bit, I'm right there rooting for him.


    Have you listened to any of David Bauckham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm looking forward to Peter James book called "Dead Tomorrow". Thanks in part to all the links Audible provides to authors and narrators on their website.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, just like I wanted to watch all of the episodes of the TV series at once too!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. More Luther Please!
