Publisher's Summary

Hugo Speer stars as John Stone in series 5-7 of the gritty, fast-paced crime drama created by Danny Brocklehurst.

Manchester detective DCI Stone and his team are faced with 10 complex, morally challenging cases in this collection of hard-hitting radio dramas. 

As series 5 opens, Stone is still reeling from the mishandled shooting of Callum Gartside, a gunman who had murdered his own family. With his personal life in tatters, he must find the strength to hold it together and do his job. In 'Dirt' by Martin Jameson, he investigates a body in a flooded gravel pit; in 'Blood Money' by Richard Monks, he looks into the hit-and-run killing of a cyclist; and in 'A Cut Above' by Marcia Layne, he looks into a suspected case of female genital mutilation. 'Progress', by Alex Ganley, finds him searching for the murderer of a garden centre owner; while 'Broken', by Vivienne Harvey, centres around a missing pregnant woman.

Series 6 includes 'Disclosure' by Richard Monks, 'Wishing Well' by Alex Ganley and Dan Allum, 'Casualties' by Martin Jameson and 'Damage' by Vivienne Harvey. In these four episodes, Stone unearths dark secrets following an arson attack on a school; struggles to find the truth about a dead body on an abandoned travellers’ site; hits an unexpected obstacle in a murder investigation; and goes undercover after a series of suspicious deaths among the homeless community.

Series 7 follows one case across 10 episodes, written by Martin Jameson, Richard Monks, Cath Staincliffe, Alex Ganley and Vivienne Harvey. After a fire at a hostel, a body is found - but who is he? Stone’s enquiries lead him to reexamine a murder investigation from 20 years before and uncover a web of lies and deceit that make him confront his past mistakes and lead to personal trauma.

A Massive Good Listen!

Beautiful drama and a great story rendered by a very good cast. I found all these episodes in the series really high quality. Not full of gore and extreme violence like almost every modern murder story.
Not heavy on the graphic and the torturous . Just a damned good listen. I cannot say how much I look forward to the next. Excellent author.. yup! A good one!

Just amazing!

Yet another great series! I have really fallen in love with Sue Kelly, she's just one of the best characters and Deb McAndrew is just a brilliant actress. 💖 the chemistry between the three leads are just amazing, keeping everything crossed for more!

Absolutely brilliant

Fantastic cast, so believable. Excellent writing, gritty storylines but enough dry Manc humour to prevent the tales because a dirge. These are characters you really, really care about. The scripts feel real, are thoughtful and well plotted and the ambiguous morality means nothing is quite as straightforward as it seems. Just like real life.

Excellent drama

This is one of the best detective drama's I've listened to. All the actors are outstandingly brilliant. I could actually listen to every chapter again and still find something new in it. I cried at the end. First class. Thanks. 😘
