Below is my honest, unbiased review of A Breach of Security by Susan Hill.

I enjoyed listening to A Breach of Security by Susan Hill quite a bit. It contained interesting characters and also an interesting storyline. I thought Steven Pacey was a good narrator.

The following is a plot summary for A Breach of Security by Susan Hill from Audible:
When a bunch of neo-fascist thugs named The Bulldogs attack a Gay pride march in the sleepy country town of Lafferton, detective Simon Serrailler moves quickly to find the assailants. He’s already got his hands full making security arrangements for a memorial service to honour soldiers returning from Afghanistan. When anonymous threats come in, Serrailler wonders if the Bulldogs are behind these too - and worries that they know the Prince of Wales will be in attendance. As the day approaches, the threats intensify, and Serrailler finds himself racing against the clock to prevent catastrophe.
