Police Procedural series I want to start – Part II

I can’t help myself. Police procedurals, particularly those set in the United Kingdom, are probably my favourite type of read.  Part I of this blog series was SO rewarding, that I thought I’d give it another go.

Last time, the poll winner was Michael Wood’s DCI Matilda Darke series. I read the prequel and the first novel in the series and loved them both. Can’t wait to read more in the series soon.

You guys make such stellar recommendations that I want your opinion again!

I’m on Goodreads everyday. I read other blogs everyday. How can I NOT be tempted to start more?  For my second post in what could easily be a new blog series (Ha-Ha) I’ve listed the information on FIVE Police Procedural series that I’m eager to start. Perhaps they’ll tempt you too?

If you’ve read any of these and can recommend them, I’ve included a poll at the bottom of the post so you can vote which I should read first out of these five.

So which is it to be?

Please vote below to share your opinion on which series I should read first.

    In addition to reading the William Shaw Breen & Tozer novels I think you would really enjoy Isabelle Grey’s Grace Fisher Novels (Quercus) and read them in order- gritty, set in Essex, protagonist is exiled to Essex Constabulary’s Major Crime Investigation from the Metropolitan Police after revealing police corruption of which her husband was involved too. So she’s dealing with the fallout of that professionally and privately plus the pressure of the more serious crimes.

  5. I love, love, love this series of posts! We have similar tastes so I get to reap the rewards of your work. 🤩 She Lies in Wait is on my Kindle, so I can’t wait to see the results. The Helen Fields looks especially compelling.

    They all look great!


  7. I have some of these on my Kindle to read (you know what comes next) so I’m interested to see what the poll comes up with and I might need to follow suit.

    I suspect this genre is one of the popular escapism in fiction. We have a sub-genre called Scottish Noir – but really it is the same thing. (Ian Rankin, James Oswald, Stuart McBride, Val McDermid, Alex Gray, Brookemyer and many more – all with some hideous crime to solve).
    I’ll admit i find that these are more about the human elements of the flawed characters than the crime, which is just a hook to hang the story on.


  9. I love British police procedurals, too! I’ve not read any of these so I’m interested in the vote. Great topic!


  10. I love this kinda read… ah saving the post 🙂 if I’m lucky enough I’ll read at least 1 next month 🙂

  12. I’m addicted to police procedurals too! I picked Jo Spain as I love that series, and all her standalone books too.

  13. I had to tune into this having also taken the choice from your last poll – I actually haven’t read any of these although I do have the Helen Fields on the TBR so I’m voting for one I’m intrigued by instead.
