While audiobooks are fairly new territory for Nicola, that is not the case for Richard, who is a favourite among Audible listeners, having narrated a number of titles, including the bestselling Jackman and Evans detective series by Joy Ellis. As a result, the news of the collaboration between the British actor and the Amazon off-shoot earlier this year came as a surprise to fans.

Geneva will be available exclusively on Audible on 20th October 2022. It will be available free for Audible Plus members or free to download with Audible's 30-day trial:
