    "I love this series!"

    Writer David Ashton mixes wonderful characters and great stories with humor, poetry and charm.

    I discovered the Inspector McLevy series while searching for more BBC4 radio dramas. Enjoyed the John LeCarre and Raymond Chandler dramatizations. Also the BBC Radio Sherlock Holmes. I listened to Levy Series #1 and immediately bought Series #2. Within weeks I had downloaded and listened to Series 1 through 7 -- 28 episodes.

    Brian Cox as Inspector James McLevy and Siobhan Redmond as Jean Brash beguiled me. I could listen to Brian Cox deliver Ashton's brief philosophical monologues all day.

    But beware -- these stories are set in Scotland. The accents of the pickpockets and petty thieves can be a challenge. If you need to easily grasp every single word on the first listen this may not be your cup of tea (or, as Inspector Levy would say, your cup of coffee). However, if you enjoy Masterpiece Theatre period drama on the tube give McLevy a listen. Ashton’s Victorian world of Edinburgh may enchant you, too.

    This is an ongoing radio series in Britain. I can't wait until more are available on Audible.

    Story
    "Excellent audible book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I enjoyed this book, didn't think I was listening to someone just reading out of.a book but was like being at a play.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I very much enjoy the characters and am looking forward to the next book in the series.


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

    No, I wanted to listen to the different story in each chapter at different times and it was why I chose this book. If I had been travelling though, I would have probably listened to it all at once.
