Death is Now My Neighbour read by Kevin Whately The Pilgrim's Progress read by David Suchet

Kevin Whately reads Colin Dexter's latest Oxford thriller Death is Now My Neighbour (Macmillan, 3 hrs, pounds 7.99), with a remarkably good take-off of John Thaw, and naturally makes a perfect Sergeant Lewis. Plenty of red herrings, bitching dons and cryptic clues.

What better tape for Chief Inspector Endeavour Morse's Jaguar than his childhood hero Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress (Penguin, 3hrs, pounds 7.99). David Suchet vaults in a breath from engagingly bucolic Christian to Mr Wordly- Wiseman's weary cynicism and the dread Apollyon's sibilantly evil hiss. Singing language and a quote a minute. Avoid other versions.
