An Accidental Death

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
August 2016
6 hours 53 minutes
The story opens with the apparently accidental drowning of a sixth form student in the Norfolk countryside. As a matter of routine, or so it seems, the case passes across the desk of Detective Sergeant Smith, recently returned to work after an internal investigation into another case that has led to tensions between officers at Kings Lake police headquarters. As an ex DCI, Smith could have retired by now, and it is clear that some of his superiors wish that he would do so. The latest trainee detective to work with him is the son of a member of his former team, and together they begin to unravel the truth about what happened to Wayne Fletcher. As the investigation proceeds, it becomes clear that others are involved-some seem determined to prevent it, some seem to be taking too much interest. In the end Smith operates alone, having stepped too far outside standard procedures to ask for support. He knows that his own life might be at risk but he has not calculated on the life of his young assistant also being put in danger.

I really enjoyed listening to this book right from the start. The narrator did a great job. I’m so glad to find that this was the 1st book in the 9 book series. I can’t wait to start #2. I love detective stories and this is one of the best.

This was one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. It was read in a clear relaxing way but still hard to put down. I’m hoping to hear more of these characters super imposed on an beautiful part of English country. The story line was something different from the usual detective novel leaving no flat spots or repetition. It’s great to get a yarn that is so entertaining.

Very good narrator!! This series has caught my attention here. Will have to come back to it. If this is ever made into a tv series I could se Hugh Laurie as DC Smith.
