Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mclevy: Servant of the Crown & the Picture of Innocence (BBC Radio Crimes) (Audio CD)
This is the third release of the McLevy series and the quality of both story and production are top notch. The dialogue catches the Victorian era so well. Brian Cox is superb as Inspector McLevy; dour and serious, never letting up in his desire to catch criminals on his patch.
'Servant of The Crown' uses the back drop of the Crimean War, and the return of the many injured soldiers, to produce a fine story. Is Queen Victoria in mortal danger from here own troops? An emotional end brings out the caring side of the heart-of-stone Inspector.
'Picture of Innocence' finds a Judge dead; poisoned or an arsnic addict? His private life is not all it should be but neither is his wife's. Is McLevy letting his judgement become clouded by a pretty face? He calls on Jean Brash for her opinions and knowledge within the 'trade' to help him find the answer.
Inspector McLevy, once again, is great entertainment and well worth purchasing by fans of crime. Please can we have more!!
