yes if they listen to audible books
tom barnaby of course, because unlike sooo many detectives, he is perfectly normal, loves his family and not" on the prowl" yet he is still very smart!
lets me read while driving long hours, keeps me interested and awake, keeps me in the story and NOT distracted or frustrated by his narration
love the TV series, but love the books better because there is so much more to all the characters, not just Barnaby and troy.
"Interesting characters & well-observed humour"
A resident young female offender rushes out into the night after an argument with the ex-vicar's long-suffering wife and, after a confused tussle, falls into the river and disappears. Thus begins another twisty case for DCI Barnaby. This novel translates well as an audiobook, with ample dialogue and well-observed, interesting characters. The narration by Hugh Ross is slow and dry, which works much more successfully here than on 'Faithful Unto Death' (another Graham novel), as it matches the author's witty handling of the minor characters. Pity, though, that the narrator couldn't pin down Barnaby's accent, which wanders from the West Country to the London suburbs and back again.
